Okay, well, here it is then.

It worked, but then it didn't also, in a sense that yes, you can make an iconset which is visible in both a bright and a dark backround, but no, it will not look equally appealing, at least not from where I am sitting.

So I still ended up making two iconsets. One which looks better with a bright backround, and one which looks better with a dark one.
Mind you, they are still functionable the other way around.

There's a zipfile attached which containes a folder called Connectiontray_icons. In this folder there are two folders, one called Brightbackround and one called Darkbackround. You can copy the contents of one of these folders (which ever tickles your fancy) to the following location:

/usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/network_tray-xpm/

You might want to make a backup of your old icons first.

Okay, the icons I made, just to be clear, are not suitable for the netmon_wce network monitor as designed by 01Micko, but rather for the old network_tray.

This is because the netmon_wce package uses svg icons instead of xpm, and only differentiates between wifi and non-wifi, but has the added icons which indicate wifi strenghth.

Here's a 'new and improved' version of the network tray icons I made.

I decided to make the outline of the in/out arrows transparant, which makes a cleaner image, and brings it one step closer to the original intent, which was to design an iconset which would look good on both a dark and bright backround.

There would be a downside in so much that if you decided to make the color of your taskbar close to magenta or neon green, the arrows would dissapear into the backround. But let's be fair, if your style decisions concerning your desktop gravitate towards those types of color schemes, you have bigger problems than that. Smile
