    Go into your icon theme, look for a folder called "places" and then "start-here.png". Change that.

    You should check your home folder for .icons

    For me, it's /home/myusername/.icons/Mac4Lin_Icons_v0.4/scalable/places/start-here.png

    I think you should look for icon themes on

    http://Gnome-Look.org

    and go to icons, download the icons you want,

    go to system -> preferences -> appearance -> install.

    Hope this helps
    I am still a newb at Linux and Ubuntu, don't give me a hard time..

    /usr/share/icons/THEME_NAME/places/start-here.png is the icon you want to change where THEME_NAME is the theme you are using e.g. Human, Monochrome, Crystal-SVG, etc.

    Don't overwrite the icon with another one just to change it. Do it the right way. Point the object to another icon of your choice. For example I am using the Ubuntu Menu in Linux Mint, but I wanted the Mint icon instead of the Ubuntu icon. The procedure was as follows:

    Open Configuration Editor. Go to Apps>Panel>Objects> find the one that corresponds to your menu button. Check the use_custom_icon box. Then where it says custom_icon, click to the right of it to put in the path of your desired icon. The path for the Mint Menu icon is /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintMenu/mintmenu.png

    Obviously your icon path will be different, but you get the idea.
