/usr/share/apps/kicker/tiles is apparently not owned by you.

right click the file, select properties,> permissions tab, and change it to read and write. I believe that should work for you, if you do own it.:)

either copy them from a terminal with sudo


sudo cp xyz.png /usr/share/apps/kicker/tiles

Or ues a gui :


kdesu konqueror

Then drag & drop

Wonderful! :) Glad you got it figured out, but would you mind letting us know what exactly you got figured out. So that I and others that find this thread will know?
