How to change the KDE menu button?


Hi!

I'm trying to change the menu button icon in the KDE control panel, but I can't find a way to do that.
The mandrake star isn't really nice.

Did anybody know how to change it? Let's say to the default KDE icon?

Thanks in advance. :-)

greetings,
Racing Turtle

I believe the icon is called kmenu.png.

If you replace that with whichever icon you want in the directory containing the currently installed iconset, then logout and back in again, you'll see the new icon.

You can also do this with the shutdown icons, etc. (e.g. shutdown.png).

Try replacing shutdown.png with moon.png, it works and fits much better.

Great I ran updatedb for the first time and got a "segmentation error". So, I can't use the locate command.

Kfind also relies upon slocate which in turn relies upon the updatedb program.

He should not be getting the segfaults on updatedb.

Something else is amiss on his installation.

Either a hardware problem or the installation itself is corrupt.
