    Default Re: How to set icon for application?

    For most Linux desktops when you install your application:
    1. Put an icon into the appropriate place for the system you are on. This is usually under /usr/share/icons for a system-wide install, ~/.local/share/icons for a single user install, or in the directory of your application.
    2. Put a com.example.yourapp.desktop file in /usr/share/applications or ~/.local/share/applications.
