adding icon to newly installed program in menu

I've been using Fedora for a while. Decided to try Mepis 2004.02 and I really like it!
Sucessfully installed gnucash with synaptic. Then sucessfully added it to the office
submenu. Then I couldn't figure out how to add an icon. Went to KDE help with adding
menu item and it shows where you click to add an icon on the screen where you add the command to launch, etc. But this doesn't show up when I go to this screen. I would like to add an icon to Gnucash, which is now located under the office submenu. Any ideas? I thought this would/should be simpler!

While adding it to the KDE office submenu, you probably didn't recognize it for what it is. There's a button on the left side of the dialogue box, without anything in it. Right click on that button, and it offers you options for choosing the source of the icon (it's location on your system), as well as a list of icons to use (from that location).

Nevermind....found it. To the right of the description is the BIG icon. Click on that
and you can choose any you like. There was even a Gnucash icon to choose.
After that I selected the right Firefox icon instead of the globe thingy and also changed some other stuff. Right now I'm getting ready to change the "start menu"
icon because I don't like the "'K' with the gear" icon. Thanks for the reply. Some things turn out to be right under your nose!
