    Change a program icon or desktop icon


    Can you change the look of a desktop icon or program icon in Linux as you can in windows. Am running SUSE 10 and KDE desktop.

    Since when can you do this on Windows?

    Put an icon in ~/.kde/share/icons then right click on the shortcut>Properties>click on the icon>"Other" radio button and find icon.

    Since Windows 98 at least, and his post is also assuming you use KDE.
    EDIT: And I'm going crazy, sorry didn't fully read the original post, he's using KDE so scratch that last comment.
