    Wink SCRIPT: Take back the Firefox & Thunderbird logo

    This script is for Hoary or Breezy only !!!
    To use it with Dapper please follow this thread !



    This script is based from the HOWTO: Take back the Firefox Logo from Sionide.
    Also thanks to Commuto, rune and Speque for their help with Dapper.


    I wrote this script because the Firefox icon is replaced with the horrible blue globe everytime Firefox is updated.
    I also added the possibility to replace the Thunderbird icon and its profile manager.



    You have the choice to replace the Firefox program icon, the Firefox document icon , the Thunderbird program icon and/or the Thunderbird profile manager icon.

    • Tested with Firefox 1.0.6-0ubuntu0.1 and Thunderbird 1.0.6-0ubuntu05.04.
    • Works in Breezy too (Firefox 1.5 and Thunderbird 1.5).
    • For Dapper (Ubuntu 6.06), please see this thread !


    Here we go:
    • Create a new script:
      Code:
      $ sudo gedit /usr/local/bin/restore_mozilla_icons
    • Paste the following lines:
      Code:
      #! /bin/sh
      
      #
      # Restore the original Firefox and/or Thunderbird icons.
      #

    I can confirm this also works with the backport of Firefox 1.0.3. Good job.
    "Windows is something to overcome"

    Howto's by me:
    Tweak firefox! (URL now works..)
    Backup/Restore your system!
    Avoid having to reboot

    if it's not much asking... I would add two things:
    1. Ability to not change the document icon
    2. Change the thunderbird icons

    Lightbulb Re: SCRIPT: Take back the Firefox logo

    After applying the script, you can also type :

    Code:
    killall gnome-panel
    no need to logging out/logging in...
    This little additional tip permits to regenerate the panel icons...

    Very helpfull. I did it the manual way from the original topic, but explaining it to friends who aren't too good at following directions isn't easy.
