    Change application icon in 12.04

    How do I change the application icon is 12.04? This used to be easy but I've forgotten how?
    I've installed Shredder from a .tar file and am stuck with generic icon!
    TIA

    Would editing the respective .desktop file (/usr/share/applications) help? There's a line with "Icon=whatever" and you can replace whatever with the path of the icon you desire.
    You could also copy over the .desktop file to ~/.local/share/applications and fiddle with it there, safe in the knowledge that the system one isn't ruined
    Shortened urls: See point #11 here. And clicking on them could be risky.
