custom icon for launcher in Gnome [Solved]

Postby LewRockwellFAN » Mon Apr 26, 2010 18:12

Sorry for posting on a matter that must seem pretty elementary to most. I've searched the wiki, used google, and searched this forum. I can't figure out what is wrong with my search strategies unless it is that the answer is so obvious to most nobody has posted on it.

I've created a launcher that works fine. Now I want to change the icon to something appropriate. The properties dialogue only lets me add decorations to the default icon. What am I missing?

Be more specific.

In KDE version of Sabayon, it's just a right-click -> Application launcher menu settings -> Options (not sure about how to set icon in Lancelot launcher, but THIS worked for me)

Thanks, Donny. I should have said I'm using Gnome 2.28.2.
Right clicking on the launcher doesn't give me anything that looks to the purpose.

So:
Gnome.
Launcher is on the desktop.
Points to a script in a folder on the desktop and works fine.
Kernel 2.6.33-Sabayon.
Gnome 2.28.2.
2 GiB or RAM.
Processor 0: Intel Pentium D CPU 3.4 GHz
Processor 1: Intel Pentium D CPU 3.4 GHz

Not a program launcher, but a desktop icon, a link to script?

Again, in KDE it works. Sorry, use KDE :roll:
