    Question create alias to terminal command?
    hi

    i was wondering if you could create an alias on your desktop so when you click it it works the same as typing a command in terminal so i dont have to type it everytime?

    thanks

    That is possible, however did you know that you can simply hit the arrow keys (Up, Down) repeatedly and it will auto fill in your last commands?
