plop your icon image into /home/dsl/.xtdesktop and then start up the icon tool (desktop menu: Desktop->Icontool).
Click the "add" button
Select your icon file
Fill in the blanks ("full path" is the path to the muse executable)
Click "ok"

Thanks Mikshaw....

Well after much ado I've got Muse installed and running and Fluidsynth. I've looked in the Muse properties and it's playing through Alsa. However it is not playing through my USB midi! I've a Soundblaster and it's sending the midi through that. When I try to select a different midi interface ( ie my Edirol UM-1EX) it's not an option.  But Muse is definitely using Alsa.
Does anyone know how to tell Alsa how to get it to start taking input/output from my Edirol UM-1EX? I've a feeling I got in a muddle last time and assumed the Edirol was ok in Alsa but maybe it's not.....

Here's what fluidsynth looks like running in alsa, and below I did a modprobe snd-usb-audio and lsmod as you might see what's wrong - thanks again all!
BTW everyone I am using DSL 3.3 now - I was just in for more headaches using 2.4 and everything seems to be working in 3.3
Here's what my lsmod

fluidsynth: warning: The sample rate is set to 44100, the synthesizer may be out of tune
fluidsynth: warning: Requested a period size of 64, got 65 instead
fluidsynth: ALSA driver: Using format s16, rw, interleaved

fluidsynth version 1.0.5

My guess would be that alsa has correctly identified both your soundblaster card and your midi device but you need to tell it which one to use.

I am not in front of a DSL machine at the moment but I seem to remember that if you look somewhere like /proc/asound/cards, you will see which devices alsa has identified. Once you see what alsa has called your devices, you can use that to identify them or you can try something like "aplay hw:0,0 filename" or "aplay hw:1,0 filename" to figure out which is which and enter that as the inerface for fluidsynth to use.

Thanks for your quick response Juanito. When I look at /proc/asound I have a number of entries:

Audio PCI/
UM1/ 5 bytes
card0/ 5 bytes
card1/ (0 bytes) - all the rest are 0 bytes

how can I tell which is hw:0 or hw:1?

In emelFM, highlight the items (eg cards) and then choose "view" from the right-click menu or enter (for example) "cat /proc/asound/cards" from a terminal window.
