I know that I need to user a Launcher to create the shortcut. The problem is that when I right click on the desktop there is no option to create a Launcher! What I am ultimately trying to do is create a symlink to Twitter, Facebook, etc on the Desktop for our users to use on this locked down appliance. But whenever I try to just drag and drop from Firefox I get the following error:
Error while copying.
There was an error getting information about "/".

I had previously installed Pessulus to lock down the desktop, but I undid everything from that. Then I even tried completely reseting my Gnome interface. No joy :(
