Changing launcher icons in gnome 3


I am currently running Fedora 15 alpha with gnome 3 installed. Does anyone have any idea how to change the icon on a launcher??? I am wanting to change the photoshop default wine icon to an actual photoshop icon. But Im not sure where to do this.

Any help is appreciated.

for those who have similar problems now or in the future. I'm not sure if this is the correct way to do this, but to change the icon. The files are located in ~/.local/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps
~/.local/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps
and
~/.local/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps

They have the label format of RandomNumber_NewShortcut_RandomNumber.png for wine anyway. Change your new icon to that name and it will update in your launcher window.

the other way would be to go to activities search main menu, find application, right click it and go to properties and change the icon from there.

The correct place to change the icon is in desktop entry for the application in /usr/share/applications/

See three quarters way down this customizing-the-gnome-3-shell.html for full details about how to change an applications icon.
