Desktop Icon does not work

I have downloaded Arduino 1.6.4 for Linux 64 bit, with a folder /home/dave/arduino, if I click on the Icon in the folder it opens the Arduino interface, If copy the Icon to the desktop and click on it Nothing happens. Any suggestions on getting a desktop Icon to work are most welcome.

Not knowing much about Linux, but it could be that the link needs the full path to the exe. If clicked in the original location, it would default to looking in that directory for the program.

You must make a link to the arduino shell script and move the link to your desktop. The arduino script is directory dependent.

Link created, and all Ok. Thanks Dave P..
