How do you download/install electrum? Do you use guide from https://electrum.org/#download? If so, you can launch it by :
1. Click Alt+F2 and type electrum
2. Open terminal and type electrum
3. Use search application feature on Ubuntu

As for create a shortcut/launcher, you can check this guide https://askubuntu.com/questions/854373/how-to-create-a-desktop-shortcut

Another way to do it (after you install your Electrum) is to open your "Activities" window (press Windows key on your keyboard or click "Activities" on top-left of your desktop), and click Electrum. Your Electrum apps will open and you'll notice an Electrum icon on your taskbar/dock. Right-click the icon and click "Add to favorites".

This will make you can run Electrum by simply clicking the icon on the dock.

Here is an older post from Bitcointalk where another user had a similar problem when trying to find his installation file. Try that as well if you want.

Type "which electrum" in a terminal. it'll tell you the location of the executable file. You can then copy that location into your gnome launcher creation window.

However  I will again recommend that you stop using linux for something so important until you become a lot more comfortable using it.

Hi

I am running ubuntu 16.04 LTS and downloaded the latest version of electrum btc wallet but I dont know how to launch it or create a shortcut, can someone help please?

If you downloaded the binary, instead of using the package from the Ubuntu official repository, you first uncompress the compressed tar file into a folder, enter that folder and then you can launch it or make a shortcut from there.

If you select the file form there, pressing ctrl m makes a shortcut which you can move anywhere else.


Also, what you probably actually want, is to lock the icon into the dock dash (name unrelated to the altcoin) on the left.

tl;dr

Just launch Electrum and when the icon shows in the dash, Right-click the application icon and select Add to Favorites.
