Package: lxshortcut
Version: 0.1.1-1
Severity: important

http://pclosmag.com/html/Issues/201011/page11.html has instructions on how to
use lxshortcut to create a desktop shortcut with the LXDE desktop, however
lxshortcut does not work with the amd64 installation. Running the command (in a
terminal window) lxshortcut -- input=[name of application].desktop does not
launch the GUI that is used to create the shortcut.  I also checked Synaptic,
lxshortcut is installed.  This does work however, on a 32-bit (686)
