awesome thanks ingvidlar it worked!! one more question, i'm using KDE, and i have a toolbar i shrank so it looks like a mac OS toolbar, but I can't change the default STAR icon that brings up the main menu, like progams/etc. I can change all the ohter icons on the toolbar though, any ideas on how i would go about changing the main icon?
