    I am trying to copy and paste an icon into my "pixmaps" folder(so i can add to desktop icons)
    I am using a linpus linux lite os ..(pain in butt)
    CAN some kind person please tell me how to perform this simple task(in windows it was a breeze) i need the explanation to be step by step...
    I have only just found the cmds for this os in "sbin" but would not have a clue which ones to use.
    I realise you need to activate permissions at times, all well and good ; so i go into root BIG QUESTION.....Then what how do i navigate to the actual file to change said permissions, i am perplexed!!!!
    I am only guessing that this is what i have to do... I have had this laptop for 2 weeks now and have nothing but head slamming sessions trying to get it to work and do the most simplistic things that would take 3 secs in a windows os.
    I have managed to get 2 icons onto my desktop by adjusting the data in XFCE-group.exe(i think from memeory) but just want to put a "VLC" icon onto it but need to have one in the pixsmaps folder.....
    Sorry for the long winded dilema but needed to explain self fully

    please any help would be appreciated
