Setting the application icon

Hello all,

Kdevelop generates two icon files, lo16-app-appname.png and 
lo32-app-appname.png. The question is, how do I make my application use 
these files instead of the default "K". I know that a similar question has 
been asked before however the response left me no wiser.

It seems that the constructor for KApplication includes an icon and a 
miniicon option. I thought that these might be the answer but apparently not.

Also, I tried:
Game_Board gb;
QPixmap qp("either of the png files");

This compiles correctly but has no apparent effect.

Can someone either tell me the answer or direct me to an  _understandable_
