I'm writing a program which is supposed to show an icon in the Indicator Applet.
The indication is created in C like this:
where "indicator-messages" is a name of a sample icon. Icons seem to be stored in /usr/share/icons/<theme>/scalable/status/*.svg (and some other subfolders).
/* Indicator */
indicator = app_indicator_new ("example-simple-client",
This <theme> is the problem. Writing my app I don't know what a theme the user will use. Is there a place where I can place my icons so that they will be available globally?
EDIT: I've already tried /usr/share/icons/gnome and hicolor. Doesn't work. My app shows the icon properly only if it's in the theme folder.
