I tried the first method, using all 3 escalation levels of cache cleaning, and non worked: I ran kbuildsycoca4, and it finished with no errors. I restarted plasma-desktop, and kwin. None of these made any difference: the replacement icon would show up on the launcher, and bounce around the mouse cursor when I launched it, but that's it. The icon in the task-bar and the <Alt>-<Tab> task-switcher was still the old icon. Then I tried the 2nd route: `--icon`. Surprisingly, it also did not work: konsole --icon "/usr/share/icons/oxygen/128x128/apps/kdevelop.png" The above launched Konsole with its regular icon. At this point, I was curious so I tried a random KDE app instead of Konsole: kpat --icon "/usr/share/icons/oxygen/128x128/apps/kdevelop.png" Lo and behold, that worked; KPatience was launched with the KDevelop icon, representing it in both the task-bar and the task-switcher! So to sum up: 1. Changing the launcher icon will only change the icon that renders on the launcher, and bounces about the cursor. 2. The `--icon` flag does work for certain KDE apps (KPatience). Mysteriously, it does not work for certain other KDE apps (Konsole). Of course, if you want to set the icon for a non-KDE app (like Firefox), you're SOL. I'd be most interested to know why Konsole doesn't respect `--icon`. Also, wondering if there's anything one can do about setting the icon for non-KDE apps like Firefox.
