You should never run everyday applications as root. If that's the only way you can run azureus, something went wrong with the install.

What desktop environment are you running? Gnome, KDE, something else?
Usually you can just right click on your desktop and do "Create Launcher..." or "Create Link to Application..."

Link to Application

Right click on your desktop and create a new "Link to Application...", then pick the appropriate tab at the top of the window that pops up (I forget exactly which, perhaps "Command?"). One of the tabs will let you enter the actual command-line string you want to execute. You can also click on the gear icon on the first tab and change the icon for the link.
