    Shortcut Bash Script

    Hi all

    I would like to create a shortcut on the desktop using a bash script ... I can't seem to find anything online. Can anyone point me in the right dir?

    Cheers

    Assuming you require a shortcut to a folder you could use a symbolic link :

    ln -s "/Volumes/Destination" "~/Desktop/Shortcut"
