Take a look in ~/.local/share/applications at the .desktop files.  You
probably want to make one with a line like

Exec=emacsclient -a "" -c -n

and a

Name=My Emacs Client Command

or something less dumb.

On Fedora 16, I already have an Emacs Client shortcut that was installed
with emacs at /usr/share/applications/emacsclient.desktop.

Hope that helps some!
