To create a desktop icon to an application follow the two steps below.

1. In an Editor create a new file.

gedit ~/.local/share/applications/NameYouWantForApplication.desktop

2. Place this section within the file and save it.

[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Encoding=UTF-8 Name=JeremysPentaho Comment=Whatever Comment You want Exec=/home/yourname@yourdomain.com/Source/Pentaho/data-integration/spoon.sh Icon=/home/yourname@yourdomain.com/Source/Pentaho/data-integration/NameOfmyIconFile.jpg Terminal=false

Thats all there is to it.
