The standard[1] freedesktop.org path for application icons should be used:

/usr/share/icons/hicolor/90x90/apps/appname.png

Yes, using "Icon=appname" (and the above paths) will eventually work, although this might not work in the current SDK release yet. Until a new release is out, you can use the absolute path, i.e. "Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/90x90/apps/appname.png"

Format is PNG, resolution is 90x90. As for the style, have a look at the existing icons in the SDK Emulator.


HTH :)
