System → Preferences → Main Menu
Click on Applications (left menu), then click on Accessories, and in the right menu, click the button labeled "New item"

Name: LightScribe Simple Labeler
Command: /opt/lightscribeApplications/SimpleLabeler/SimpleLabeler
Comentary: LightScribe Simple Labeler

And that will make the application appear on the menu

Ricardo

hi Ric,

Perfect!
I got it on my menu now..
but is there a way to change the look of the icon ?
the icon that is shown is the same as application launcher. the board with spring..
how to make the product logo to be the icon look, like when i uses lightscribe on windows7.
anyway this shortcut problem is SOLVED.

Thanks !
Gary

Thanks Ricardo A. Hermosilla Carrillo, that solved my question.

Go to the same place as before, but instead of creating a new element, selected as created and edit it. Click the icon and change it to this:

hi, Ric.
yeah, thanks again for reply.
no edit option on menu and properties, only new item, new menu, delete, properties, move up-down, separator..
anyway, i also found another way to put it on desktop screen like, windows OS style.
i added the lightscribe on my application menu,(upper left of screen)
then right click to add to desktop.
right click to open properties, 2 click the application icon(default), >file system>(2 click) /opt>lightscribe(2 clicks)>simple labeler(2clickcs)>content(2 clicks)>images(2 clicks)> then i double click the icon
and there goes the icon on my screen..
click the icon to open applications, every thing is normal as it should be and like windows OS..

thanks so much, for helping me on "how to..."
problem solved
ok,, see again
Gary
