Setting Root Terminal Icon in XFCE4 panel2 and window list

In XFCE4 panel shortcuts, calling the xfce-terminal emulator directly allows explicitly assigning it an icon in the corresponding .desktop file:

...
Exec=gksu -- /usr/bin/xfce4-terminal --icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/gksu-root-terminal.png
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/gksu-root-terminal.png
...

That change causes the window list to also show a red terminal, matching what is in the panel menu.

Otherwise, the XFCE window list showing active windows has different icons than what started in the panels.  By default for the Root Terminal shortcut a red terminal is shown in the panel, but the window list just shows the generic terminal icon.

Re: Setting Root Terminal Icon in XFCE4 panel2 and window list

I can't remember if the root terminal icons weren't in sync between the menu and the panel when I set up my desktop but they are now. I might have changed it in the panel preferences, certainly never via command in the terminal. I change icons all the time in the panel by clicking on properties > edit > icon (just browse to the one you want to use).  Done.
