AFAIR: right-click on star --> properties --> click on icon --> browse for preferred image.

Try overwritting /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/128x128/apps/menuk-mdk.png or ensure the theme you select has something in /usr/share/icons/theme_name/various_sizes_here/apps/menuk-mdk.png if you aren't using the default iconset and just inheriting from it.

I tried that

I over wrote the image just as was posted and it has not yet changed but I can confirm that it did indeed over write. Anyway I got to thinking about it and that is not what I wanted to do anyway.

How about just changing the path to the one that I want or wanted to use?

Sorry if I confused anyone else.
