Alacarte seems broken and when I tried to setup Minecraft, it wouldn't let me click the OK button, just the cancel button.

What exacrly do you mean by "make applications"? Do you mean an application icon? (For that, all you really need to do is write a .desktop file.)

I was thinking of shared applications, but I'm kinda new to fedora so I don't know a lot of names of things. I'll tey .desktop for now.

I actually used .desktop and it works thanks. I haven't used mozo yet, but .desktop works. PS: They really need to fix alacarte in my opinion.

@Gion, I'm confused - did you mark this answer as correct without trying it?
