Arronax is a Nautilus plugin to create and modify application starters (technically: .desktop files).
Arronax adds a menu item “Create starter for this file” to the context menu (that’s the menu you get when you right-click a file in the file manager). If the file is a application starter you get an item “Modify this starter” instead.
If you have icons on your desktop enabled Arronax adds a menu item “Create starter” to your desktop’s context menu.
Enable icons on your desktop
With Gnome Nautilus is by default configured not to show icons on your desktop.
You can change that by opening a Terminal, type
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons true
and hit ENTER.
