Unhappy How do I change that awful mandrake star in the kde start position?


Hello all,
Having just upgraded to Mandy 10.0CE, which was a less than pleasant experience. You know the type of stuff, poor support for video. Net card no longer recognised etc. And the still famous, (or maybe infamous) Mandy feature of no screensavers in KDE, I finally got thinga to more or less how I want them. However, I can't find a way to get rid of the awful Mandy star that appears in the KDE taskbar, right where the start button would be on that other well known OS! It really is driving me to distraction. All I want there is the very nice KDE icon. Can anyone tell me how to do this PLEEESE.
Maybe when I've got this sorted, I can find out why my scanner no longer works. Hey Ho.

Thew best way to get rid of the Mandrake star is to use Fedora. Changing the star is not going to help out all that much.

/usr/local/icons/crystalsvg

Under there, you find different sizes (eg. 32x32) and under these size-directories, a folder apps.

Replace menuk-mdk.png with kmenu.png (the original KDE-icon). cp kmenu.png over the menuk-mdk.png or whatever. You can also use this script I attach here, it does this for every size (makes backup of the original first):


# Small/Tiny:
cp /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/16x16/apps/menuk-mdk.png /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/16x16/apps/menuk-mdk.pn_
cp /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/16x16/apps/kmenu.png /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/16x16/apps/menuk-mdk.png

# Normal
cp /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/menuk-mdk.png /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/menuk-mdk.pn_
cp /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/kmenu.png /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/menuk-mdk.png

# Large
cp /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/48x48/apps/menuk-mdk.png /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/48x48/apps/menuk-mdk.pn_
cp /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/48x48/apps/kmenu.png /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/48x48/apps/menuk-mdk.png

# Even bigger?
cp /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/64x64/apps/menuk-mdk.png /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/64x64/apps/menuk-mdk.pn_
cp /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/64x64/apps/kmenu.png /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/64x64/apps/menuk-mdk.png

Why is a lot of answers just say just switch to this or that distro to fix this or that problem. Thats not any help at all and is very frustrating. When a person is happy with a distro they really don't want to hear switch to my distro to fix your problem. What they don't say is "but my distro has it's own little problems". All distros have their own little problems and no distro is completely problem free. So please don't try to help somebody if your gong to say switch to MY distro because IT'S NO HELP AT ALL. This is one of the reasons I stop asking for help because most of the answers were to switch to this or that distro.

I would save the "This distro is better than that" for the appropriate thread. I agree with courtrrb. I am new to Linux/Mandrake & comments like that just frustrate me.
