How can I change the icon of a desktop shortcut

I install various softwares via RPM. Then I find them in the /usr/bin and create a shortcut to the desktop.

When I click with the right button in any of these shortcuts and select "properties" I have no option for change linux attributed icon to another one.

May someone of you help me change icons of desktop shortcus?

Greetings from Sao Paulo - Brazil
