  2. Change “Link to Application” text to your shortcut’s name.
    Tip: We will use TeamSpeak as a example. If you want to change the default icon, click in “File type options” button and then click in icon button and search your icon file.

  3. Now click in “Application” tab and in “Command” textfield put correct command to start your application. In this example we will use TeamSpeak client to show to you how it is simple. To open TeamSpeak we need to run ts3client_runscript.sh, so we will put complete path to run this script.
