My full .desktop file now looks like: [Desktop Entry] Name=LiClipse Comment=Variant of Eclipse Exec=/home/tsbertalan/bin/liclipse Terminal=true Type=Application Icon=/home/tsbertalan/usr/liclipse/icon.xpm Which isn't particularly robust to changes ...

There is no easy way to do it, since it's hard coded. But a workaround would be editing the images that form the "tile" as you call it and change them for transparent (empty) images. You can find them in: /usr/share/unity/icons/ There you'll see a bunch of images for when the icon is normal, pressed, highlighted, etc. Edit them with gimp, for example, ...

I do not know what exactly is "content that I believe is appropriate". However, if you can run the script through terminal all you have to do is create a script with: #!/bin/bash cd /path/to/folder command-you-would-run-in-terminal Make the script executable. Then in your .desktop file, launch the script instead of your command directly. Example ...
