Is there a way to change the KDE K-Menu icon?


I use Mandrake 10.1 and instead of the "classic" K-menu icon, Mandrakesoft has replaced it with a star. Is there a way to replace this star icon with one of my own choice?

Hello

Now, guess what I found, and where I found it:

LinuxQuestions.org > Forums > Linux - Distributions > Suse/Novell > Beginner HowTo:Changing the KDE Menu Icon

OK, I'm not a moderator, and usually I don't tell people what they should or have to do, but you might get a quicker answer using this: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/search.php ;-)

Bye

I changed the K icon to Tux on Slackware 10.1 by doing the following:

/opt/kde/share/icons/(icon set your using)

Then went into:

32x32
48x48
64x64

Replacing kmenu.png with the icon I wanted.

I dunno if it'll work on drake... never tried! ::shrugs::

Head to ~/.kde/share/icons/ This is where your user installed icon themes will be (as long as they were installed using the tar.gz files like from kde-look)

Select the folder of the icon theme that you are using, or that you want to use.

Go into the size folders (16x16, 32x32, etc) and into the apps folder. The 2 most common are 32x32 and 48x48

Locate the icon named kmenu.png and rename it to menuk-mdk.png

Then reload your icon theme (K menu -> System -> Configuration -> KDE -> LookNFeel -> Icons, select a new theme, then your original theme and click apply)
