Don't know, I have only two icons in my desktop. :-)

AFAIK, Strigi is a search program, I suppose similar to Google Search, in my
system it works, but, even if I use Firefox as Browser web, I have Konqueror

some options to be used with Strigi, first of all the indexing of the files.
Sorry for my little help...
