Try here but this is the icon for 32x32 there are other folders depending on the size of your menu bar...

/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/kmenu.png

Hi,

I am also wanting to change the KDE button, I have got Suse 9.3 Pro and the icon is a hideous green circle with the lizard thing on it.

I tried going to the /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/kmenu.png, but I only have up to:
/usr/share/icons/wmappl

where could I find where the icon is saved and what path it takes, and where to change the path to a certain icon.

You can install new icon themes using kcontrol or use and app called kbfx.

I am happy with the theme, but it is just this one button I would like to change, but I cannot do it through the kcontrol/control centre

Take a look here and also search on this site or google because your question has been asked quite a lot.

Usually installing a new icon theme replaces the current kmenu button, unfortunately some distros try to prevent this by renaming their kmenu icon to something different from the default.

thank you,

I found out where to go, although I think I will have to copy the K icon into a lot of folders and rename all kmenu.png & suse.png icons with teh k icon

thanks again

Not sure if this thread is intended more for SUSE users, but I have a problem that maybe you could help with. I can't get kbfx to compile no matter what I try. It fails at qt, even though I have every qt component available, and at the right levels(it tests for >=3.0) Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has had this problem with kbfx, and what you might have done to get around it. Or, if I'm completely in the wrong thread for it, where I might be directed. Thanks in advance.

can't find kde

Actually, since I posted that last comment, I did a yum update, and updated over 300 packages on my system, which seemed to fix the qt issue. Now it's not finding KDE, which is odd, since I actually use it for one of my accounts. The exact error is "Checking for KDE...
configure:error: in the prefix you've chosen, are no kde headers installed. This will fail. So check this please and use another prefix. "

I typed it in verbatim. I know I'm obviously missing the header files for KDE, but I don't know which package they'd be in. I don't need anyone to hold my hand, I can hold my own, I just haven't used KDE since 99, because it sucked back then, but now that it's growing up, I'm trying to get the most out of it.

Anyway, thanks for the help.

You need to install kdelibs-devel and kdebase-devel.

Can someone provide me with 16x16, 22x22, 32x32, 48x48, 64x64, and 128x128 kmenu.png icons? There are several versions, but any of them will do.

Never mind, I found it in the kdebase of the .tgz file for Slackware.
