Thread: Geeko icon in Gnome

    Default Geeko icon in Gnome

    Hi everyone,

    I am not sure if this is the right place for this question. If not, sorry.
    The question is very simple but complicated by a newbie like me. I have installed Suse 11 gnome and I would like to have the geeko icon menu (of the Kde version) instead of the simple "Computer" icon and word. Is there any way to get this?
    Thanks in advance for your help,

    marfape,

    AFAIK, you can't have a KDE menu in Gnome.
    You can however get the classic Gnome menu, by right clicking
    the Computer menu down left and select remove. Then right click
    the empty space in the panel and select Add to panel, in the list
    select Traditional Main Menu.

    Thanks Niclas for your help.
    Anyway I wanted to change only the menu icon not the menu.

    Thanks,

    I think you can do this with gconf , use caution here as it can royally screw your gnome up if you put in wrong values.

    open a terminal
    'su' type in you root password
    'gconf'
    ok now go to 'apps' -> 'panel' -> 'default setup' -> 'applets' -> 'main menu'
    (or 'apps' -> 'panel' -> 'applets' -> 'main_menu_screen0' /* I cant remember exactly which*/)
    play around with settings 'use custom icon' and or 'custom icon'

    trial and error

    idshark,

    > open a terminal

    This should be 'gconf-editor'

    > ok now go to 'apps' -> 'panel' -> 'default setup' -> 'applets' -> 'main
    > menu'
    >

    Problem with this is that you also need to change the object_type from
    bonobo-applet. Might not be what you want.

    Another way could be to create your own icon theme and place into ~\.icons
    You can then select your custom icon theme within Control Center|Appearence

    You don't need to specify all icons, you can have your icon theme inherit
    from the default Tango theme. The only icon you need to replace is the
    gnome-fs-client one for the size you're using.

    Cehck into the structure of /usr/share/icons to familiarize yourself with
    it. Then writeup your own index.theme file to define your icons.

    Fetch a KDE icon. Rename it to start-here.png
    Now launch nautilus as root and replace the icon with the one in /usr/share/icons/iconname/22x22/places
    Also replace it with other sizes - 24x24, scalable.. But remember to replace a 22x22 icon with the same sized one (Gimp and scale the original icon)

    This does not work for the SLAB icon. Unless I am missing something. I have been trying to find a way to change the 'computer' icon and haven't found an answer.

    Replacing the gnome-fs-client icon as I suggested worked just fine for me.
    I'm, running it here on my machine and have changed the Computer Menu icon
    into a small openSUSE Gecko.
