Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu.

Can you please be a little more descriptive on which program it is that you would like add to the quicklaunch area?

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Needs information' state without activity for the last 15 days.

we figured it out, thank you.
