    [SOLVED] Changing desktop icons

    Does anyone know how you can change the icon for a desktop shortcut to a website? I'm trying to convince my parents to switch to Ubuntu and I want them to see something familiar for the link to their AOL accounts. Thanks for any help.

    You should look at the program fogger.
    It's in the repos.
    It's for creating webapps, you can personalize the icons and such.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I actually just found another way through the GUI: in the shortcut's properties you can just click on the icon and it allows you choose a new one.
