When I went from FC17 to FC19 (both under KDE), my desktop
launchers lost their icon (which had been replaced
by a question mark). When I attempt to right-click on
a launcher, select "properties", click on the icon,
select the icon and select "OK" I get a popup window
telling me that I don't have sufficient access to write
the "<launcher name>.desktop" file. I checked the files
permissions - they're OK, I can open the file with a text editor
and write it, if only I knew what to write.
Currently, the contents of the launcher of a "konsole"
named "Terminal 150x50.desktop" are:
Exec=/usr/bin/konsole -profile KONSOLE
Interestingly, the value of the "Icon" entry
is what I selected, that is: this file got updated when I selected
the icon of "utilities-terminal". So why the popup window and why
the launcher icon is still a question mark?
TIA for ideas,
