icons for other progs (xterm, emacs, etc)

  • Anonymous - 2004-06-19

    Hello Folks,
    I'm new to pypanel, and love it!

    Anyway, i know this probably isn't a pypanel issue, but how do i get pypanel to use icons for programs like emacs and xterm?  Right now they get the default.  Firefox, sylpheed, rox, etc icons show up.  Do i need to copy the icons to some other place or name?

    Thanks for any info,

      If an application doesn't set its own icon Pixmap you can often do it in ~/.Xdefaults.  Here's how you'd do it for xterm -

      XTerm*iconPixmap: <path to Pixmap (xbm)>

        Thanks.  That does worlk.  I had to download an xterm one (i don't have many xbm's on this box).

        For some reason they show up in inverse on the panel, but for now i  can at least tell them apart.

        Thanks for the tip.  It's been a long time since i used .Xdefaults...
