I'm setting up an old (P3; 194 meg RAM) computer for use in the waiting room at a children's counseling center, so the kids can play while waiting.
I plan to remove almost all the default desktop icons and then install icons for those games, so that they are not distracted by things like 'install' and 'mount'. This machine will not have internet access, just what's onboard.
Currently I've got a dozen games with icons showing on the desktop, but they're all a gear symbol.
How can I obtain and then install a different graphic for each game?

Very Happy Hello,
Right click the "gear" and select "set icon"..
A box will open...drag the icon you want to the box and drop it....
Default location for icons is in /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps...
Or /usr/local/lib/X11/themes...If you have applied an icon theme...
