icons not showing on desktop

Recently i have upgraded from Fedora 14 to 15 formating the system partition and reinstalling. Nearly evrithing was flawless, but when i copied my old home directory the images of some of the launchers i have on the desktop are invisible.

I use kde 4 with the activity show folder running pointing to the desktop folder. The icons missing are windows programs installed with wine. I copied the icons from one installation to another. I also tried to manually set the icon copying it to a different location and modifying de .desktop.

Any ideas ?

Might be easier to just recreate the icons.
Now running Fedora 17 64bit
64 bit works great!

Re: icons not showing on desktop

Disabled the option to let nautilus (or whatever) handle the desktop.
Gotta install gnome tweak tool for enhanced settings to find it.

As long nautilus handles your desktop, you wont be able to the see these icons there, other than browsing for them, folder: Desktop

I've found the problem. It seems that in fedora 14 you could left the icon entry in the .desktop files without extension, but not in 15. After editing the incorrect .desktop files and adding .png to the icon url every thing start working fine.
