2. Open the file using a text editor like GEdit and type the following commands, then save it.

  gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/Desktop --create-new

I went through a very similar process, and it worked a treat in Gnome3 (although I've switched to LXDE now).

On Mint 11, I want to create a custom launcher for a program that must be started using a script. This method doesn't work for me.
