I'm glad you like it!

Does it not show an icon at all, or does it just show Wine's icon?
Either way, do you know where the .desktop file is for those launchers?
It would be helpful to know what the value of the icon field is.

The released version does not have any localization files. However,
several translations have been provided after I made the release and the
next version will be translated into (so far) German, Hebrew,
Indonesian, Italian, Romanian, Spanish, and Turkish.

The "Unknown" is supposed to be your user's name but you have not set a
real name, and the plugin does not yet fall back to your username. The
next bugfix release will show your username if you have not set a real name.
