When the file opens in gedit, check that they are correct.
Check stuff like the path to the executable file for the program in question, etc.
Those files should look something like:
Comment=Light-weight GNOME text editor
The "Exec=/..." part is the path to the program.
In this case, I would check the path
In terminal do
:~$ which gedit
It is correct.
That's all I can think of.
I don't use any desktop with icons or anything, though, and haven't
for some time. (I use ion3)
