mozilla xpm icons can't associate


Hi, Been having a lot of trouble trying to get the mozilla xpm icons to associate to the application itself.

I am using KDE 3.3 in SuSE 9.2. I downloaded and installed Mozilla with the installer, not an RPM. I do not wish to use an RPM.

I tried to find a menu editor in KDE to have a menu and desktop link to mozilla. I cannot find the editor.

I have searched google for two hours trying to find answers.

Sorry for asking so much, _J(member) was trying to help me, but I am still kinda lost.
Thanks to all who have helped so far.

I did stumble upon one site that described the process. but can't find it again.
They mentioned something about writing a script to do it, is this necessary?

Mozilla will launch if mozilla is typed in the run box.

OK Cool ...

You say someone has tried to help, what have you tried?

In my KDE, all I have to do to make new menues and put icons etc into an existing menue is to right click on an existing menue... if you have tried this, and are used to windoze thinking, you may have seen the editors you want and just not recognised them.

If you want, for eg, to start mozilla from the that menue bar on the bottom of the screen, you right-click an empty space on it and add a "launcher" to the panel. The application icons you are used to are called "launchers", the menues are called "panels" and wizards are called "daemons" or "utilities".

I'm surprised the installer didn't put an icon for mozilla on the main panel. If it did, you can usually just click-and-drag it to wherever you want another launcher.

There should be more under KDE help - look up "panels".

Finally figured it out, sometimes it is best just to walk away from it for a while.
Thanks Simon for getting my head straight.

Man I feel stupid
