Can you provide more information on what steps you took to create the link, what kind of script you are linking to, what happens when you try to use the link, and what you were expecting to happen?

I use Ubuntu Tweak 0.4.7.1>Personal>Script to add [Link to Desktop] script.
Then i used it to in music folder to link it to Desktop.
What happens? No link was created in to Desktop.
I was expected a link in Desktop.
That's all
And thanks to you.

I'm not familiar with Ubuntu tweak, but if it is trying to create a symbolic link, then the link destination must exist for it to work. Is it possible that you need to specify the complete path for the link you want?

You might try setting the link to one of the following:

   ~/Desktop
   /home/<username>/Desktop (where <username> is your username)
  ../Desktop (if the music folder is inside your Desktop folder)

Can you help with this problem?
