*kaum macht man es richtig, funktioniert es sofort*
Anyone else out there have any experience with changing an application icon?
Hmm, yeah, so some apps look to the theme folder for icons, and some apps are specially programmed to look elsewhere? Is that the idea? Or some apps are for some reason left out of the theming? Or the icons just don't "connect" somewhere along the way?
Is there any way to find where an application is pointing for its icon?
From what I found, there's no way to tell where it looks for the icon. People were systematically changing one icon after another in the application folders to try to get them to change. To add to PITA factor, some people reported caching of the icons, even through multiple reboots, so you might blow right by the right icon because it didn't change at the bar after reboot.
Yikes, that's what I was afraid of.
I've been having the same problem. But a rather peculiar thing happened.
Okay, so I wanted my Iceweasel icon ( on tint2 ) to look like Firefox Aurora's. I resized the png image in GIMP to every conceivable size and replaced every conceivable Iceweasel icon I could find in the ff directories w/ my icon.
Went to my 'tint2rc' file:
launcher_item_app = /usr/share/applications/iceweasel.desktop >> okay, no change... looks fine...
restarted tint2... And guess what... NOTHING HAPPENED! = (
After a couple of hours going 'round in circles, I threw in the towel and went on to download FreetuxTV thru Synaptic and check out what this FreetuxTV was all about.
And LO! Just as the installation finished and for some inexplicable reason, my Iceweasel icon on tint2 suddenly transformed itself into my Firefox Aurora ICON!
I still can't figure it out. Could it be one of the plug-ins that came w/FreetuxTV? Or would it work even if I tried to install any other software? Haven't tried it w/another program yet.
Anyway, if that's what makes tint2 tick, I'll try installing some 1kb plug-in or something in future and see what happens.
Please tell me if it works out for you too.
BTW I'm relatively new to #! and this is my first post.
