hello, if you are using mandrake or redhat i supposed that the KDE icons stuff are in
i use slackware and they are in
you just have to locate your icons directory files. once did it;
in that directory you see more directories whit the name of the software icons that KDE have, you know you may saw many directories whit names like crystal icons, kde classic, etc. just enter in the directory of some of then go to the size 32x32 and locate the icon K see what name does it have remember that name, and replace or delete the icon K and copy your desire icon there and name it, the same way the old K icon was calling. then go to control center - icons and select the icons files that you modify -- if you modify the K icon in the crystal icons, use crystal icons. and then see what happens
you could do the same process that you did whit K icon whit the Desktop icon.
You can also create a directorystructure relative on the system directory structure in your home directory and place the icon in that directory.
e.g. if the icon you want to replace is
then create this directorystructure:
and put a go.png in that directory.
This way, your change does not affect other users on your system
You don't have to reboot the system, it's supposed to work immediately that you select the icons in control center.
are you sure that the icon you replace "kmenu.png" is the same one that is in Taskbar?? did you check if you have another K icon in that directory call Go.png??? i told you this cause i have change K icon in mandrake, redhat and slackware, and i always see 2 same K icons in the directory icons, one is call kmenu.png which isn't the one that is in Taskbar, and the other one is call go.png which is the one that KDE use for Taskbar. if you have one call go.png replace that one whit the one of your like and always put the same old name if the icon K is call go.png the new icon that you put to work as K have to be call go.png if you doesn't see any go.png K icon and you only see the one call kmenu.png and still doesn't change when you select the icons in control center, go again to /usr/share/icons and select an bigger category instead of 32x32 select 48x48 or 16x16 and change in there the K icon for the one you desire
ehhh... what do you ppl think? Does anyone of you know, that mdk keeps it's icons in another place? Yes, it does! And the place is different in every version! My advice: GET A DECENT DISTRO.
Thank you all.
