How do i edit the icon displayed for a program or the command options used to run it in gnome shell. On gnome2 I could right click on the application item to edit these settings.

For example i have installed fpm2 from yum, and while the application is listed in the applications in gnome shell, the icon is just the generic cogs one.

Files representing applications live in /usr/share/applications. Yours should be called something like fedora-fpm2.desktop. Just edit it to change the Exec or Icon entries
