Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Navigate to this directory: /usr/share/applications

Then simply mark the application you want on your desktop, copy it, and paste it onto the desktop, that will create a desktop launcher.

Another method described in 1b here: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=86813

In Cinnamon all this is much easier.
