Can you describe the problem in further detail?  For instance, what
exactly do you mean by "rename icons under Trinity"?

Many users are not aware of this, but there is a cross-desktop standard
that applies to almost all desktops called the XDG specification.  In a
nutshell it specifies how various desktops should handle common elements
such as desktop shortcuts, icons, etc.  This standardisation is what
prevents a user from having to create, for example, completely separate
desktop shortcuts for each desktop environment they use.  A side effect of
this standardisation is that the various desktops are somewhat bound
together such that changing icons, desktop shortcuts, etc. in one desktop
may change the others as well.

If you can provide more information on what you are seeing and what you
want to see we may be able to help.
