Install an icon

Install an icon to identify your application.

When listing an icon in a desktop file, the image must be installed in a standard location, given by the Icon Theme and Icon Naming specifications. As a minimum, an application should install a 48×48 pixel icon into $prefix/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps in PNG format.

To match with other icons, both in GNOME and other platforms, follow the Tango Icon Theme guidelines when creating icons and application artwork.
