if ur using kde i dont know, but in gnome, if you right click the program in the menubar then it should have options like "Add to panel" or "Add to desktop" add to desktop is the one you want.

I have another distro in dualboot with KDE and a right click on a program in the menu has the option "add the element on the Desktop" (as I am in French it's "ajouter l'élément sur le bureau") I think Mint KDE should have the same thing. :wink:
