That will work but is certainly not desireable.
Extensions made available to the public should not require the user to perform such step.
Performing such step is not desired for any extension, as they would not be cleaned up upon reboot or even un-mount.
To do so breaks the MyDSL system and causes a mess on the desktop.
It is these incorrectly made extensions that are causing grief and complaints.
Please make extensions made available to the community correctly
If you need a wrapper script to properly launch then provide such.
Well made application extensions at minimum should provide a menu and should be in the user's path.
At best they should provide icons for both v3 and for v4.
If you make links to MyDSL extensions on the desktop, you will end up icons that appear to not work, when the uci is un-mounted, or when a frugal or livecd is reboot and the extension is not auto reloaded.
Extensions should support all operating modes of DSL and not just traditional hard installation.
This is standard operation specifications for extensions.
