I love this ubuntu, putting it on every machine I touch.:D It is the only linux I've ever had where I didn't mess with the default desktop. I like it all... except one thing.

Is there a way to replace the foot next to applications on the bar with the ubuntu symbol? I would love to make a custom one, if I knew how to install it.

Thx

/usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-logo-icon-transparent.png any custom one has to fit certain requirements otherwise the gnome-panel won't load

thanks. It was easy to make a new one in gimp. If someone wants it, I'll put it in a photo bucket or something.

Very slick guys, Using the orange/red one for the gnome panel now (sorry Magneto, the blue just doesn't flow with my desktop at the moment). I never knew you could customize that or I probably already would have!

Thanks all for the great info and submissions. That single change makes such a huge difference.
It really personalizes the desktop for a more unified and coherent Ubuntu appearance.

not blue/ubuntu enough for the icon? :?

I just started this (no arrows yet)

but it's not ubuntuish and I haven't decided where it's going. If you have ideas, PM me so we don't mess up the thread. GTK isn't playing nice.

What's the gnome-icon-theme name that replaces the foot? gnome-main-menu?

Can someone tell me the steps to change the 'foot' on the panel? I'd like to try the red/yellow logo but I'm not certain of the steps I have to take. Thanks.

The easiest way is to rename;
/usr/share/pixmap/gnome-main-menu.png
to whatever and replace with yours. Then in a terminal do;
killall gnome-panel

if you have a lot of diff ones you want to customize and are going to change them often it may be easier to keep them in a central location and make a ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and put the necessary code in there to point to your custom iconrc. This will over_ride defaults or theme settings.

~/.gtkrc-2.0

gtk-icon-sizes = "panel-menu=36,36:gtk-menu=16,16:panel=16,16"
include "/xdata/gui/icons/iconrc"

relevant part
/xdata/gui/icons/iconrc
Both the icons and iconrc are in the same dir

style "panel-icons"
{
stock["panel-main-menu"] = {{ "gnome-main-menu.png", *, *, * }}
}
class "GtkWidget" style "panel-icons"

get a very complete iconrc here

Or use the gnome-system-monitor or the gnome-theme-manager ....etc....there's many ways :grin:

So there's not a way to set the icon via the icon theme (rather than the gtkrc)? That seems surprising to me, considering there are themes in gnome-themes-extras that does replace that icon.

bvc
December 1st, 2004, 08:11 AM
sure there is. What ever is in
$ICON_THEME/sizexsize/apps/gnome-main-menu.ext

like
MMX-Mercury-L/128x128/apps/gnome-main-menu.png

BUT! If the gtk theme has a iconrc with a menu icon it will over_ride the icon theme.

I'm currently using the new Industrial Steel icon theme. It didn't have a menu icon. I didn't want the gnome default. So I put mine in /IndustrialSteel/48x48/apps/

Right click on my picture: save as

Save in the /usr/share/pixmaps/ folder.

Should work.

I know this may not go over well, but the Industral theme looks pretty good, it is kinda like Ubuntu in a blue form. I mean, well, the Human theme is based off the Industral theme.

Drop the gnome-logo-icon-transparent.png into Theme/48x48/apps and the panel will use it. I'll be making a modification of SmoothGNOME that uses the Ubuntu logo as the panel-main-menu.

Thanks for the steps. I'll try it when I get home tonight. In the mean time, just in case, what are the procedures for reverting back to the original? That last command, 'killall gnome-panel', sound very ominous. Thanks.

In my case it would be:

mv /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-logo-transparent2.png /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-logo-transparent.png

if it bitches about permission denied then:

sudo mv /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-logo-transparent2.png /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-logo-transparent.png

Hehe, this really fits the feel of Ubuntu much more than the GNOME foot. I like it, I'm using the one with the Ubuntu colours. Keep up the good work people!

I love the first one posted, and have changed mine to look like that.

Is there a way to get the developers to use one of them as the default? The others are good options but the first is in the right Ubuntu colours.

Has anyone got this little trick to work in Hoary, and if so, how?I wouldn't exactly call it a trick, but the latest hoary artwork is a trick of some sort. I can still make the gnome-main-menu anything I want in all other icon themes but the new Human. I haven't clue why. There's nothing special about the new pkg or theme, that I can see, that would cause this, so I'm baffled. Guess I'll have to use another Icon theme now, eh?

Probably. And how'd you do the main menu icon change? I copied the icon I wanted as "/usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-main-menu.png" but the icon doesn't change after a killall gnome-panel or login in Hoary. Should I copy it to a different directory, or a different filename?

$THEME/scalable/apps/gnome-main-menu.svg
or png

I tried it from an iconrc in a gtk theme and it doesn't work with Human either. In fact, none of my gtk themes will set the menu icon from their iconrc :-x
If this is not a bug and means they are trying to fix more stock icons, whoohoo!!! great!!! I'll be patient because stock icons are currently a mess and needs fixed!

The themes .gtkrc file is probably overriding it.

there's is nothing of the sort in the Human Icon Theme :???:


The themes .gtkrc file is probably overriding it.Doesn't matter what gtk theme. If I am using the Human Icon theme the menu icon in a gtk theme doesn't work, but does if another icon theme is being used :???:

I'm noticed for some reason, instead of filename.tar.bz2, DeviantArt is changing it to filename_tar.bz2, which is where it's going wrong. Renaming it to .tar.bz2 gets it working, though. :-) Excellent icon.
