Thanks Jari,

I looked at those directories already but those icons are not the same
as the ones in the setting manager. I also looked at the
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps directory. In this, some of the
icons are the same as in the setting manager but some different (for
instance the xfce4-display). Just to try what happens, I replaced the
calendar icon in this directory with my own but the setting manager
still shows the old icon.
