I think we need to build an .xpm image file in the repository and make sure that when we export i2b2 workbench, we use that image for icons.

Tools to generate .xmp: GIMP or Inkscape.

.xmp resolution for linux should be 256x256, as per reference 1.

Have created an icon (.xpm) file. It is used in launcher files. It will be used for the next export of i2b2workbench.
