How do you make a desktop icon for firefox in Vector Lite?
« on: August 25, 2012, 04:50:53 pm »

How do I make a new desktop icon for firefox?  I keep trying to find something like create new launcher, desktop options or anything like that and I can't find it when I right click.  Is this possible to do in Vector Lite?

Vectorlinux light has a variety of desktop managers so I am not going to try to guess.

Instead put this in the terminal...then press enter.

cp /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop ~/Desktop/
