How do I add/edit a desktop icon on kde4.6 ? I earlier versions, we could click on the gear wheel to change or add an icon. I have a few apps that do not show an icon (even though the icon is in kickoff menu - one is pingus)
If you remove the one from the desktop
Then unlock the widgets
Now drag one from the Kickoff menu to the desktop
That is exactly what I did - the one in the menu has a little penguin and the one on the desktop has a white rectangular sheet with the bottom right corner turned up. Most applications are OK - not this one - so I thought of adding it from an icon list - which in earlier versions could be changed by right clicking the gear in the tools menus for the icon.
What desktop activity are you using
There is no particular activity - I just use desktop 3 and put all the games on the screen. I have to make it simple for my grandson. There are 22 other apps that work OK
Give me a minute
I’m using gnome, but I’ll boot to kde and check
Right click icon (dead centre)
I cannot get the icons shell showing as you have it - even for an app where there is an icon that that exists. Your screen behind has an icon - mine has a gearwheel
This is the image that I get for the firefox icon on the bottom bar
Go to the top right cashew and click it
Create a New Activity > Plain desktop
Check the differences
I’m back in Gnome again, sorry.
