How do i change the firefox/ice weasel launcher icon, kde


Hello, something this simple, i thought would be an easy answer that i'd find straight away in google, but i didn't.
I'm using Debian, which uses ice weasel instead of firefox, which to my understanding is exactly the same as firefox, except the name and icon. I do not like ice weasels icon, and would like to know how to change it's launcher icon. If anyone knows how to do this in kde, or change firefoxes, as i'd imagine the process would be roughly the same for iceweasel, i'd greatly appreciate it if you could share it.

Edit this file:
/usr/share/applications/iceweasel.desktop and change the line
Icon=iceweasel
to what icon you want to use.

Hi, thanks for the reply, i tried what you said, but that file obviously searches in a directory for the icon, what directory should i put my desired icon.

Use the full path to the icon you want to use.

For example I use Firefox and not Iceweasel,
Icon=/home/craig/Downloads/firefox/icons/mozicon128.png
