An instruction on how to change the icons in Linux

Unread post by palem » 2019-07-11, 08:52

Because I have not found an instruction on how to change the icons in Linux (there is only a Windows instruction), below I describe to interested people how to change the PM icon in Linux.
In my (Manjaro) Linux, in the directory

Code: Select all

/usr/lib/palemoon/browser/chrome/icons/default/
there are 3 files: default16.png, default32.png and default48.png, which should be replaced (as root) by icons that suit us.

Download any icons (with copy rights) or create yours, place them in any directory and from that directory copy them to PM directory:

Code: Select all

sudo cp default16.png /usr/lib/palemoon/browser/chrome/icons/default/default16.png
sudo cp default32.png /usr/lib/palemoon/browser/chrome/icons/default/default32.png
sudo cp default48.png /usr/lib/palemoon/browser/chrome/icons/default/default48.png
After restarting PM, the new icons should be visible.

AFAIK redistributing those icons without permission is illegal.

I created these icons myself based on a large image downloaded from the Internet (I'm not sure which one it was) and I did it for the PM community, so I hope PM developers will not want to sue me for that :)

Just because you downloaded a copy of the logo from the internet does NOT mean you have any rights to it.
Just because you resized an image doesn't make it suddenly yours to do with what you will. That includes uploading to image hosters to link from a forum.
Why do I have to explain the obvious?
