Did you install it from SUSE repositories or build from source?  Is it in
the SUSE menu somewhere?  If so, just drag to the desktop and chose "copy


You could also right-click the desktop and choose add new link to
application, and in the appropriate tab, put the path to the binary
(/usr/bin/scilab or similar, maybe in OPT for SUSE?) or where ever SUSE puts
it.  Try rpm -qa | grep scilab from the command line or whereis scilab to
find out where it is.

I have successfully downloaded and installed Scilab, a math analysis
program, in SUSE Linux. Now I would like an icon on the KDE desktop to
easily start Scilab. Have not been able to ferret out the SUSE or KDE
instructions on how to do that, if they exist.


Any guidance would be appreciated.
