Postby derixc on Wed Feb 13, 2008 7:04 am

hi guys! i'm trying to play with my system and I'm having a little problem here. I want to change the default daryna button to a customized icon similar to what they have in gnome-look.org, particularly this. http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=63133 but the issue here is I can't find this key after gconf.
I gconf-editor go under
/apps/panel/objects

Now look in all the subfolders, and look for one where the "object_type" is set to "menu-object" or "menu-bar".
If you find a "menu-object" just scoll down to the key "use_custom_icon", set to True, and then edit the key "custom_icon" and insert the path to the icon you want to use.
If you find a "menu-bar" then change the key "object-type" to "menu-object" and then scoll down to the key "use_custom_icon", set to True, and then edit the key "custom_icon" and insert the path to the icon you want to use. This will replace your menu with an icon.


The only thing showing on my end is object_0 without any key on it. can anyone help me with this?

This is because the logo is in mintMenu
Sadly I don't know how to change it and the search in this forum is no good...(will have to dig into the phpbb forums)

I think the newest mintMenu 3.1 got that option on the preferences.

I do not know if this will help anyone. I use custom icon themes and it would change the main menu icon to the Ubuntu logo. I replaced the distributer-logo.png, gnome-main-menu.png, novell-button.png, and the start-here.png icons in different sizes ie 48x48 36x36 24x24 /places of the icon folder with the icon I wanted then repacked the folder and reinstalled the icon theme. Now I have the mint logo for my main menu icon.
