I recently installed the Mintmenu on my laptop which has Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 as its OS. I then changed the standard Mintmenu icond for a custom one using a following terminal command:
# sudo cp /usr/share/icons/Human/scalable/places/<name of file>.svg /usr/share/pixmaps/mintmenu.png
# sudo killall gnome-panel
This worked fine, but when I tried to do the same on my other computer, using LinuxMint Elyssa, the same terminal command resulted in:
cp: target /usr/share/pixmaps/mintmenu.png is not a directory
Does anyone have any ideas on how to work around this?

I think your problem lies in trying to copy an svg as a png file. I ran this command without problem.
- Code: Select all
sudo cp /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-logo-icon-transparent.png /usr/share/pixmaps/mintmenu.png
Try converting the svg you want to use to a png first
