Changing Menu Logo

Post by spunknibbles » Sun Dec 03, 2006 5:00

On the suse style menu, kicker, is there a way to change the sabayon icon. I want to re-colorize it to match my theme.

Nevermind.

I answered my own question.

Anyone that is interested you can find the path to the file here

Code: Select all

/usr/kde/3.5/share/apps/kicker/pics


It is titled kmenu-active.png.

hmmmmm, that is great info cause if you use a different panel size you can just resize it.

Nice!

I need to add something to that:

For the normal button seen all the time it will be:

Code: Select all

/usr/kde/3.5/share/apps/kicker/pics/kmenu_basic.mng


and for the pressed version it will be:

Code: Select all

/usr/kde/3.5/share/apps/kicker/pics/kmenu_active.png



I like the sabayon logo but I needed something more fitting. I downloaded some kbfx themes and were able to use their logos from the archive and put them in as needed. Now I can have the SuSE style functionality with my aesthetics. :D

I'm going to ask squarebottle to prepare a .mng too :) Since that's used by default.

New LOGO updater

Post by spunknibbles » Tue Dec 05, 2006 2:39

I have compiled a few images that can be used for a new logo. It is a vista-ish sabayon logo, much better than the previous with one. It also can be updated and reverted from some simple shell scripts I included. Hope you Like!!!!!!!!

Hey Spunk, you and I will be in touch. ;)
My soul hurts. Please read what happened. It hurts, and nothing will happen. Perhaps they will try to soothe their conscience by removing this from my signature, so read it, and talk about it.

Needs a little work, but for a quick make this is awesome! Good Job! I like it. We need to add some styles or themes for the menu button. That would be great!
