Change MintUpdate tray iconmint

Postby ilikemint456 » Mon Jun 19, 2017 10:42 am

I would like to change the tray icon to use more bright colors, because I've set the icon to be shown only when there are update available and I want to stand out to be easily noticeable. In the Internet I've read that I should look for /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintUpdate/icons, however, there is no such folder!
I tried to find out where the tray icon is stored to replace it but couldn't find it.
Please share your ideas on how to achieve that.

edit: I'm running LM 17.2 with LXDE

Right click on the icon and go to Preferences.
Then look under the Icons Tab to change them

But there is no icon tab. I'm running LXDE, could that be the reason?

The reason is the version of Mint, which you kept as secret. In newer versions this option has been removed.

Oh, sorry. That was silly of me. I'm running LM 17.2 with LXDE.

Instead of locating and modifying the present icon, why not go into Mint Update Manager > Edit > Preferences > Icons tab, and change the icon to one of your's in your /home directory ?

In LM 17.2 Cinnamon the option described by all41 does exist. But LXDE is not an official desktop environment of Mint. If their makers have removed it out of a certain reason - ask them.
