Icon files are located under /usr/share/pixmaps.

.png extension is assumed

Any .desktop file placed in /usr/share/applications will appear on the home screen.

Example:

[Desktop Entry]

Name=INSTALLER
TryExec=assassin
GenericName=Installer
Comment=Assassin Openmoko Installer
StartupNotify=false
Exec=assassin
Icon=assassin
Terminal=false
Type=Application

Set icons to appear in the low menu

In the above example, 'Bar;' indicates that the item will appear in the bottom menu where 'INSTALLER' sits as default. Add 'Bar;' to 'Categories' for it to appear here.
