    Openbox and icons

    I've been trying to change some of the icons in my system. I first tried the GUI. This changed the icon in the start menu, on the panel, and on the desktop, but it doesnt change the icon in the left-hand corner of open windows or in the task bar in the panel. I then went in and did it manually by editing the .desktop files in /usr/share/applications. Same thing...the icons in Openbox windows are the old ones. My guess is that Openbox is looking elsewhere for icons, but I dont really know. Does anybody have an idea?

    Thats the one. Where do you remove the N from?

    Preferences-> customize look & feel
    Or
    Preferences-> openbox configuration manager

    Look under the window setting.

    Re: Openbox and icons

    Thats one option. I would really like to know where Openbox is reading its data about the applications that it launches. Not only are the icons different, but Ive noticed that some menu items have different names in the menu and in the window suggesting that the menu and Openbox are reading different files. I cant seem to find an answer anywhere though...

    I think it uses mime files + the theme icons.
    I have no idea how it works though.
