Customizing icons on the Java Desktop System "Lauch" menu

If you want to have the "Launch" menu icons aim at different applications (ie you install more modern version of evolution instead of the stoneage one Sun ships):

  • go to /usr/share/applications
  • edit the $APPLICATION.desktop file
  • change the Exec line (and any TryExec line) to point at the appropriate application

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
