Sorry about this off-topic post -- this actually has nothing to do
with Rosegarden at all, it's just me ranting a bit and hoping someone
here can offer a quick tip. (I'm still here, but have been very, very
busy recently and the end is not quite in sight yet, I'm afraid.)
Anyway, just a quick question -- can anyone recommend an alternative
to kiconedit, which I've previously used for making simple icons and
button pixmaps? The version of kiconedit in Ubuntu 8.10 has gone all
KDE4 and seems to be busted in so many ways that I would spend more
time filing bug reports than I have available to make the icons, and
with all sympathy to KDE4 developers from the perspective of someone
more often on the receiving end of those unhelpfully broad reports, I
just need a tool that works.
Inkscape (excellent though it is) is overkill for the sort of things
I'm thinking about, which are usually the very obvious first-cut icons
that fill a space until I've decided what should go in it. Gimp is
actually closer, but not really ideal. If I can't find anything else
I'll probably use "pixmap", the ancient Athena application, clumsy
though it is, but a more modern suggestion would be very welcome.
