icons kde4


Hi, I've got 2 questions:

1. I can't seem to be able to remove some icons from kde4 desktop. They were created there automatically when I tried to install itunes through wine (itunes and quicktime). When I try to uninstall them via Wine uninstaller - it kept reinstalling them instead of uninstalling. so I just removed their directories from ~/.wine, however the icons are still on the desktop.

2. I've got 2 other icons on the desktop (created by drag-and-drop from dolphin) They are shell scripts starting americas army and lightzone. I can't find the option that would change the icon to something more interesting then standard shell script icon.

thanks

1. Remove file from Desktop folder of your home directory.

2. Edit icon from a text editor and change "Icon" target.

Thanks

1. I had done it before, but it kept creating the icon everytime I rebooted the box. What I did was I went to the ~/.wine directory and saw that there is the explorer.exe file so I ran it and I could remove it from the "windows" desktop.

2. I'll try it, thanks
