short cuts and app icons for linux

although i actually never succeeded to test multicam...and by now it's really high up my list  ::) :-X i came across something else.
I thought it would be nice if there was an option in linux to have desktop icons or that is was possible to start up chdkptp through the application menu (those 9 dots)

so i wrote a small addition to solve that, however i'm not really into making icons, so if you like the addition to be included in the chdkptp download.
my request is, would somebody like to draw up 2 nice icons for chdkptp on linux? because this really won't do for an imaging program :)

i think the files are clear enough, but if there is a question, i'm happy to answer.

Test it, try it and give me feedback :) i did a few text changes in the readme.

Strangely the non-GUI shortcut seems to have stopped working on my system after the latest boot and i am unclear as to why....back to the drawing board i guess.

changed the non-gui version, so it will also work after a fresh boot before you started a terminal yourself ;)

if you use method 2 from the readme (setting it in the application menu) you can then also choose to place the app in your dock from the application menu (add to favorites)
both desktop and app launchers will work on the same system.

If somebody has a transparant background chdk logo i will adapt the Gui icon

Thanks Phil,
in that case..here is a new set of icons.

I've also changed the file path of the .desktop files to chdkptp, like i use myself.
it is easyer to use a chdkptp folder instead of the extracted zip with the revision number.
because with a fixed path you have to change your desktop and app shortcuts every time you use a different revision.
but i thought it would be more clear where to locate them if i placed them in the same structure as was used here:
https://app.assembla.com/spaces/chdkptp/documents

I changed icons for the last time: by replacing RAW with PTP...impossible to read, seemed more fitting though
