[SOLVED] Change Gnome Foot Logo From Arch Linux

I have an Arch Linux with Gnome WM. I want to replace the Gnome foot logo with an Arch logo in my PC, specifically system details window (Settings->Details->About).  Can any one help??

I tried this --> https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=99828, but in my case its doesn't work.. sad

I also tried this:

yaourt -S archlinux-artwork

Thanks in advance

I guess it's this image here: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-co … Medium.svg

But I did not find that image in the gnome-control-center package nor the gnome-icon theme packages, so I guess it's compiled in.

You could strace the process to see which files are openend.

Thanks for the hint. It's stored inside the binary using GResource.

gresource extract /usr/bin/gnome-control-center /org/gnome/control-center/info/GnomeLogoVerticalMedium.svg > GnomeLogoVerticalMedium.svg

But I have no idea how to replace a svg file inside the binary file..! Is it possible?

Re: [SOLVED] Change Gnome Foot Logo From Arch Linux

Replace the /home/user/directory with a directory you created and put a file named GnomeLogoVerticalMedium.svg in it.
Gnome Control Center should now load that file instead.

G_RESOURCE_OVERLAYS='/org/gnome/control-center/info=/home/user/directory' gnome-control-center

Found this in: https://developer.gnome.org/gio/stable/ … escription

The binary can be modified too I guess, but that seems too much of a hassle.

Edit:
I think the best and least hacky solution here is to compile gnome-control-center yourself with the image you want.

I compiled gnome-control-center with the arch logo. It works.. Thanks for the support
