Create Desktop Shortcut in Google Chrome missing?

Postby RavenLX on Thu Apr 11, 2013 7:40 pm

I just installed Linux Mint on my spare laptop and am trying to set it up like I had it on my regular-use laptop.

I noticed after installing google chrome, I don't see a way to create a desktop shortcut for an app. Before, I would go to a new tab in Chrome, right click and then I could choose to create a desktop shortcut. I noticed that option is no longer there after installing on my old laptop.

I really need this as I would then get the executable information from right clicking and editing the shortcut and make a menu item, then I would add it to my panel. This is very useful for GMail, OpenDrive, Google Drive and other things I use a lot.

Is there a way to make these shortcuts again? Where should I look for what to put in the command line?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
