    Changing desktop icons

    hi friends.

    I have done remastering of knoppix 3.8.2 in my own language(i.e hindi). In the desktop there is an icon named knoppix,clicking on this icon opens the index.html page. Now i want to change this name to some other name(like abhigyan) in my customization. How should i do this.

    Also i want to add some more icons on the deskop. How should i do this. In which file i have to do changes. Plz help.

    Thanx in advance.
    usha.

    Put desktop icons in /etc/skel/Desktop
    owner knoppix, permissions 644
    Linked to these are shell script commands put in
    /usr/local/bin, or possibly /usr/local/sbin
    owner root, permissions 755
    To link Desktop icons to their shell scripts, under KDE right mouse-click on the icon in /etc/skel/Desktop and
    select properties, then select the execute tab and in the box under Command: type
    sudo /usr/local/bin/scriptname
    to allow the user to execute the script by clicking the Desktop icon.
    Hope this helps.
    Regards,
    Mark
