A couple of hours ago I installed xubuntu on my sisters netbook.
This is my first time using anything other than windows and I'm having some troubles.

I installed Chromium and managed to get the icon on the desktop.
Now I want to rename it from "chromium webbrowser" to "internet".
this is what happens:

I rightclick on the icon and select rename.
This opens a pop-up thingy.
I change the name and press rename.
The pop-up disappears and the name remains unchanged.

Don't have or ever used xubuntu but can answer generically - Maybe, see edit

A shortcut on the Desktop (desktop launcher) is a .desktop file, it has an actual file name , (whatever.desktop), & a display name

Generally you can't change the actual file name, nor do you want to, it doesn't matter in this case
You are free to change the display name to whatever you wish by editing a line in the file - Name=

So open a text editor or text file in a window so you can also see your desktop icon
Drag the icon over to the editor window & drop in to your editor window.
This will open the .desktop, find the Name= line & change it to Whatever you wish, in this case internet or maybe nicer, Internet
(there is No space between Name= and the name you choose though the name Can contain spaces

screen shows Ex. - in this case a .desktop I made - the file name is aud-cd.desktop. The display name is Audacious Cd Player

Edit: - if launchers in Xubuntu don't look like what I've posted then copy the contents & post, will take a look, as mentioned never used xubuntu

Thanks for the quick reply.
Here is the code.
It's aparently showing a different name in every language on earth.
I'm using Dutch[nl] so I should change those right?

In my Xubuntu 10.04 desktop, when I right-click on the icon I get a pop-up menu that includes options to "edit launcher" and if I select that, I can directly modify the display name and the comment without having to locate and edit the file directly. I don't know if this is still available in the newer versions, though...
