Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

The artwork package contains both the standard Arch logo in various formats and archlinux-wm-gnome.svg in the wm-gnome directory. If that's not what you're after, could you explain what it is that you actually want?

Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

/usr/share/archlinux/icons

You can copy the .svg to your current iconset folder, in places. Replace the default gnome-main-menu.svg, distributor-logo.svg, start-here.svg etc.

They might be a setting somewhere in gconf-editor to use a custom icon as well - but I don't recall.

I'm looking to replace the Gnome foot logo in the 'applications' menu w/ the Arch logo.  Here is a screenshot of someone who did just this except using a Debian logo:

Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

So why can't you use one of the Arch Linux icons provided by the artwork package?
Did you read proxima_centauri's reply above?

@xyne - I read the post, but I don't see where the current iconset folder is located.  He said 'in places' but I'm not seeing it.

Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

If you installed through appearance preferences it's in
/home/$USER/.icons
$USER = your user name
I meant the "places" folder inside your icon folder. It was a little unclear in my post. I assumed you knew where the .icons folder was.

Nepherte is also correct for iconsets already installed, or if you always install your icon themes to /usr/share/icons - go there instead. You'll need root privileges to copy the icon to folders in here.

Perhaps try a

locate gnome-main-menu.svg

Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

@bernarcher - I did that and found:

/usr/share/icons/HighContrast-SVG/scalable/places/gnome-main-menu.svg

I replaced it (after creating a backup) with the arch one of my choice but didn't see a change after logoff/login

Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

I had another play with it and after restarting gnome-panel it seemed to work. Not quite as expected though. Now I have an arch logo which is the Applications menu but the "Places" and "System" are missing altogether.


edit:
Ok so after changing the object_type from "menu_object" back to "menu_bar" the panel went back to normal without the Arch logo.

Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

What iconset are you currently using? If you installed it, how?

Changing "/usr/share/icons/HighContrast-SVG/scalable/places/gnome-main-menu.svg" won't do a thing unless you are using the HighConstrast icon set.

Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

@proxima_centauri - I'm using the 'gnome' icon set selected via the clearlooks theme.

$ locate gnome-main-menu.svg
/usr/share/icons/HighContrast-SVG/scalable/places/gnome-main-menu.svg
/usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/places/gnome-main-menu.svg

I copied over the arch icon and restarted gdm but still no change.

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  14 2009-03-18 19:33 xfce-trash_empty.svg -> user-trash.svg

So it's a symlink to start-here.svg.

# cp start-here.svg start-here.svg-virgin
# cp /usr/share/archlinux/icons/archlinux-icon-tango-64.svg ./start-here.svg

I restarted GDM, logged in and no change.

Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

See if this works

1) Save this png -> starthere.png

2) Run as root

cd /usr/share/icons/gnome/24x24/places
mv start-here.png start-here-old.png
mv NEW_ICON start-here.png

3) As user

pkill gnome-panel

Re: Arch logo for Gnome menu [SOLVED]

@arkham - Worked great, thank you for spending the time to type it up for me!  I updated the Gnome_Tips wiki article with your method.  Here is a link to the procedure's section.  Thanks again.
