I just installed MS Publisher under wine for the wife, but now I'm having trouble creating a shortcut/launcher. I can create a shell script and have that launch via Terminal.app, but I'd like to do something similar to an Ubuntu launcher, but I'm not sure if I can do this and I couldn't find any useful info on this. Anyone have any suggestions?

To answer my own question (since no one else seemed to pipe in), I decided to go w/ shell script.

Code:
#!/bin/bash wine /Users/michael/wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\/Microsoft\ Office\/OFFICE11/MSPUB.EXE &
Once I had the shell script, I created an alias, and placed it on the desktop. Not exactly the launcher solution I wanted, but it works for now.
