I am configuring a system running a clean install of F16 running the
KDE desktop - everything works really nicely apart from one feature
that I have been unable to use and maybe I am simply too stupid to be
able to find the answer by googling.....

I have a script that I want to be executed using a custom icon on the
panel - I can easily put a panel item in for any of the already
installed items - but I have a script in my home directory that in the
past I have been able to simply set up a panel item in gnome2 in the
past or in xfce so that alongside icons to start a browser or a
terminal shell I want to be able to run my private script with a
pictorial icon of my choice.... is there a way or will this mean I
have to move to another DE like xfce to be able to do it?

Thanks for any help in getting me the knowledge on how to do it.
