Click on your HOME-Icon, and navigate to /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin

There you will find all the executables.

Drag theone you want to your desktop.

Right-click -> file:XXX -> set icon. a dialog will open.

Now navigate to /usr/share/pixmaps, and drag an icon you like to the dialog.

Small trick: in rxvt, type "which ical", to find out in which folder it is:

# which ical
/usr/bin/ical
# rox /usr/bin

The last command opens rox with the folder, where you found ical
