View Full Version : Need help about gnome integration

July 11th, 2010, 01:06 PM
Hello everyone, I'm new to linux programming and have encountered some questions about integrating my software to gnome.

1. Where should I put the icons? Should I put the application icon under $(datadir)/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps or under $(datadir)/pixmaps? And what's the differences between them?

2. The ubuntu wiki says that I must set the icon of application indicator to one of the theme icons, so must I install an icon for current theme? Do I only need to install one icon for ubuntu-mono theme? And how can I install theme icons in automake?

3. Should I provide icons for every size? such as 12x12, 24x24, 128x128... It's boring and is there a easy way to install them in automake?

4. Can automake or autoconf generate a .deb package for me? or must I manually make a .deb package after every release?
