Using the same icon theme for GTK under KDE

I wanted to use Clearlooks on both Kde and within Kde all the GTK apps. But GTK apps started to use the default, ugly gnome icon theme. So I made this change to the following file, called .gtkrc-2.0-kde4 and back to business, using Oxygen icon theme everywhere ^_^.

Create desktop launcher in Ubuntu 12.04

There is a certain flaw in usability for power users in the new Ubuntu 12.04 out-of-the-box. I cannot create a desktop shortcut as easy as it was used to be.
Instead, I have to install gnome-panels package and then use this command:
gnome-desktop-item-edit Desktop --create-new
to get a popup that was so natural it is a crime to miss it.
