This is really a question for the the Unity developers I think.  I had
a look around and I couldn't find any way to do this, so it may not be

As a last resort, you could copy the icon you prefer over the one that
is installed by FreeGuide.  If you installed from the repository or
a .deb file I think that will be here:


You can copy your icon over the top by doing something like this in a
terminal window:

wget http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/robsonbillponte/cartoon/128/TV-icon.png
sudo mv TV-icon.png /usr/share/pixmaps/freeguide.png

This is kind of evil, but should work.  Note it will be overwritten if
you upgrade freeguide.
