    Hi,
    I installed putty via macports from CLI, but the icon does not appear on the applications?

    I can start it via CLI, but how do I make a shortcut in the application folder.

    Thanks.

    This isn't as hard as it sounds.

    Open up Script Editor, create a little AppleScript with the following line in it:

    Code:
    do shell script /full/path/to/binary
    Replace /full/path/to/binary with the full path to the executable file.
    Then, save it as an application, drop it in the Applications folder, and off you go!

    I'm sorry but where do I find that script editor?

    It's in the AppleScript folder, which is either in Applications or Utilities (I forget exactly where, and I'm not at a Mac right now).
