Good morning guys,
@fehlix thanks, I excuted your steps but I was wrong about the desktop file name, forgetting to add ".desktop" to the name. Very interesting and useful the step "permanent way to put......."
at this point would you like having the honor to choose the icon button panel?
Have a good and nice Sunday, here, in Sicily, is warm and sunny.
Bye

If you prefer to change the displayed icon of the "button" on the panel :cool:,
within the menu or on the desktop (wherever you have placed it) you can
manually change it by this:
-> Right-click on the icon-button
-> click Properties
-> click the little pencil on the right side below to "Edit ..."
-> click on the displayed Icon to select another one
PS: I’m sure :crossfingers: it’s mentioned somewhere in the mx-user manual,
but haven’t checked this.

Happy sunday! :happy:

Sorry for my english, but I invited you to "choose" and show which you prefer just for fun ;)
