For Icons Check:

Also, when you do a dpkg -l you can find the files for the package in
For each package, you can check the <pkg>.list file to see what files it has

For applications on the desktop, I believe you should look for
In that file you should find the name of the icon being used.

Hope this helps.

Hi everybody,
how can I obtain information about the installed applications

The command 'dpkg -l' will show you all installed packages on your device.
