I don't have a bit of elephant in me so I had to dig a bit.  I found
this and took a screenshot.  It's attached.  Keep in mind, my little
icon is on the kicker thingy at the bottom of the screen.  It should
work either way but just in case. 

I got this by right clicking on the icon and looking at the icon
settings.  It may be properties when on the desktop tho. 

Let me know if I can get any more info.  It took me a while to get this
working here to but once I got it working, it has been a gem.
