How to change the icons in the Login screen's F10 menu (Mint 17)?


I'm designing my own login screen - I used to work on mainframes so it's a hark back to a plain simple old school green screen! It's a Gdm menu with some Gtk on Mint 17 xfce.

Does anyone know where the icons used in a login screen's F10 menu are stored? (See attched pic.) It's the pop-up menu showing Restart, Shutdown, Suspend etc. I've scoured my PC and can't find them. I've looked at other folks' login designs, and everyone seems stuck with these same icons.

(If anyone likes the retro computer font by the way, it's called VT323.)

Muchos.

Andy

Red face update

I'm on a mission now! It seems, after more extensive Googling, (and very few results), that the icons MAY actually be hard-coded into the greeter. It may just be an Ubuntu/Mint quirk, as I've since spotted different icons in examples of other folks' distros.

I know I could start from scratch with an HTML login screen to design fixed restart/shutdown etc options, but as I say, I'm on a mission now to find these buggers in F10!

If the icons are indeed hard coded, that's beyond my ability and I'll just live with my mainframe login screen not being truly 1970s!

Currently working on re-producing those icons in the GIMP, and then doing an image duplicate search of the whole system to see if anything pops up. If it does, I'll post back.

Andy (too much time on his hands!)

UPDATE: Well, I reproduced one of the F10 icons and did a duplicate image search of the whole system using dupeGuru pictures edition, which is normally very good at finding even just similar images.

Nothing came up, so I'm going with the assumption that the icons are hard coded into the greeter, and I'll have to live with them. I'll put this to bed, but I won't mark as solved in the hope someone knows better.
