Unhappy How to add icons to FluxBox menu?


Since I've installed FluxBox, I've wanted my desktop to look like the one below:

How did they get the Firefox icon and other icons in the menu? I'm completely clueless...

cons in Menu

If you want include some icons in your menu use this...

[exec] (gnome-terminal) {gnome-terminal} <~/.icons/xterm.xpm>
[exec] (firefox) {firefox} <~/.icons/firefox.xpm>
[exec] (Run) {fbrun } <~/.icons/run.xpm>

Note 1:

only working with version 0.9.10 and above

Note 2:

you can only use xpm images.
version 0.9.12-r1 supports png and jpg over imlib2 support

Thumbs up

Thanks comprookie2000, that worked like a charm. I hope the developers implement .png icon support with the next stable release, because from what I can see 99% of all my icons are in .png format. Luckily Firefox and Thunderbird have their icons in .xpm.
