A few weeks ago I was able to integrate my Radio station into their own section within the menu: Custom LXDE Menu Thanks again to PCNetSpec for the help, its a super little hack. My Radio Stations menu magically had a radio icon appear. I've just done the same for my newspapers but I can only get generic cog as the icon. My question is, where is the the icon directory that the menus draw from? I'd like to add a newspaper icon to the list. Many thanks.

there's a few.

user specific = ~/.icons
system wide = any of the directories in
/usr/share/icons
and
usr/share/pixmaps

Downloaded an image and scaled it down to 64x64 pix in pixlr, (a cracker of a tool). Saved as a png. Dropped it into pixmaps and the job's a good'un. Many thanks.
