I am a new Ubuntu user and I have installed Eclipse, various versions. I have created a desktop short-cut, I have pasted eclipse.png , eclipse.xpm and icon.xpm in following folders:


but nothing seems to work and I still get the above image attached in unity launcher. How to get eclipse to show correct image?


I created an eclipse.desktop file based on gimp.desktop in /usr/share/applications and with the file manager I clicked on properties, browsed for the proper icon.xpm and then launched it. Funny thing is that if I use a desktop file from another location where eclipse is installed, the icon is still there :)
