View Full Version : [gnome] How to customise Force Quit icon?

May 17th, 2011, 01:27 AM
I'm using the Faenza icon set but I do like to have the Force Quit button on my panel, however it looks really odd and out of scale compared to the rest of the icons.

See pic: http://edge.imgur.com/CiqOp.png

So does anyone know how I can change it, left-clicking doesn't bring up properties in the menu.

Does anyone know if there is a Faenza icon for it (couldn't find anything on Google) and if so, how could I change it?

Force quit is not included in Faenza icon set. You have to find one or to make it by yourself.
If you place the search "gnome-panel-force-quit" in Google images, you'll find plenty of them.

When you do, name it "gnome-panel-force-quit" , and place it in ~/.icons/Faenza/apps/24

Don't forget to execute "pkill gnome-panel" before you start expecting to see the changes.

Hi, thanks for the reply, I tried your suggestion but it didn't work. I found a way to replace the icon it uses by going to


and replacing the gnome-panel-force-quit icon there with a different icon I prefer. It's the only method I found that worked. Of course, if I change my icon theme again I will have to go back there and change the icon in there too.

Again, thanks for your help. ;)
