I can open the Desktop directory in Dolphin and select another icon in the properties of each link, but saving settings does nothing. Permissions are correct.
The links were created in KDE4 FWIW, but it's the same if I make a new one.

I think I've seen the same thing: right click on a .desktop file, and open the "properties" dialog. Anything I try to update in that dialog - not just the icon - is not saved when the dialog is closed. It looks like it saves the updates and no error occurs, but the .desktop file is not updated.

My workaround has been to edit .desktop files using kwrite instead, which *will* save the updates.

OK, this works. Is upstreams aware of this issue?

I suspect it is just some incompatibility somewhere. When I first upgraded from kde4 to plasma 5, I was still running dolphin 4.14.3-r1 (stable then) and found this problem: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1044272-highlight-.html. The upgrade to dolphin 15.12.3-r1 fixed it.
