^ as title says.
Where does it look for the program icons? For example, on menu-internet- i have iron web browser, with the icon. When i open it, in the tasklist i dont have the iron tab with the icon, just a big red X. Same happens with other programs, puredata, yoshimi, etc. thanks

I had the same problem with Firefox, but fixed it with this solution (by Semme):

I'm not sure if the sequence of folders is the same for the programs you mentioned, but I'm sure someone else will know...

capicoso,

Are you referring to the desktop configuration files which amongst other things can include the application icon? If so, the .desktop files are found here: --> /usr/share/applications directory.

Hi,

The picture below shows capicoso's problem. In my case it also applies to a few apps (all different from those already mentioned).

I did once spend spend an hour+ trying to change this, but I failed.

My regards

I believe you may be trying to change the gtkdialog icons for the gtkdialog apps, which in most cases are just using the generic X icon. This is why I don’t just show the icon in the tasklist, but also the name.

You can change this in /root/.jwmrc-tray (hit eye in rox, it is hidden) by editing it to read like so:

Code:
<TaskList maxwidth=”0“/>


The default is than used for JWM.

You can also try changing the icon in gtkdialog apps script for another gtk icon, these are somewhat limited in some Puppies. Here is an example of one of my script lines, which control this in Slacko 533:

Code:
<window title="Refresh Menus” icon-name="gtk-refresh">


List of possible gtkdialog icons:
