Welcome!  We are always glad to have a new contributor to the project. :-)

libr is a proposed metadata embedding library originally written for
Gnome.  I liked the idea so much that I went ahead and used it in TDE; it
allows each executable to contain metadata such as the application's name,
description, preferred system icon, icon data, etc.  To see this in
action, simply browse to the /opt/trinity/bin directory on an TDE >=R14
system; rather than a bunch of featureless "gear" icons you will see each
executable file is now displayed with the appropriate application icon. 
More metadata information is available in the Properties dialog for each
file as well.

You can get libr (and any other missing dependencies) from the TDE nightly
build dependencies repository here:

Hope this helps!
