HOW TO INSTALL IT
-------------------------

Look at this picture if you need more help: http://img123.imageshack.us/img123/2500/setup.jpg!

First method:
1) Find the folder of the icon theme that you are using (/home/[you]/.icons/[theme]).
2) Just rename the file "start-here.png" in the folder "24x24"/"32x32"/"48x48" (better) to "start-here.png.backup".
3) Copy the matching picture of your distribution in this folder and rename it to "start-here.png".
4) Reload the icon theme in gnome-appearance-properties.
5) Set the height of the panel which is using the main menu at 24/32/48px.

Second method:
1) Launch "gconf-editor" and open this following path: "apps/panel/objects/object_X" where X is the number which has "menu-object" as value of "object_type" key.
2) Then, in "custom_icon" property, write the path of one of the icons.
3) Check also "use_custom_icon" property.

These icons are so cool.But i think it will be better that the symbol become bigger than the circle,to make the symbol obviously.

You can use these icons for anything like desktop icons or for a dock but if you want to use an icon as button in your panel, follow my instructions.

Just extract the pack in your home or elsewhere and open gconf-editor then go to "apps/panel/objects/object_X" (where X is the number which has "menu-object" as value of "object_type" key).

In "custom_icon" property, write the path of the Ubuntu icon.

Finally, check the "use_custom_icon" property.


I think I will make a picture this afternoon to show how to do that. ^^

Thanks for everything. I fix it myself in other way: the icons my theme was using came from the gnome default theme... so i replaced the start-here.png of that theme with your icon (just like you explain) and that just did it. By the way, i resized your icon to 24x24 cause the small size you did (36x36 i think) looks too big for me :P and makes the other icons of the panel to grow when installed.

^^ now my panel looks really cool with your icon. Really Thanks.

I would like to use your circle start icon for Fedora 10 on KDE 4.2 but I can not kind the correct start-here-kde.png to replace. Do you know the right png to replace on KDE 4?

I'm sorry. I don't use KDE anymore. :/
Maybe you know anybody who use KDE and can help you?

Else, look for your current icon theme folder then replace the png by my picture. It's my advice, I think there is a better solution.

Do you use Gnome's default menu?
Because you have to change the menu of the panel. Use the other one. It looks like an icon. Add it and check if you see my icon on the panel.

(Sorry for my bad english. If you ever don't know how to put it on the panel, come back here and I will give you a screenshot to help you.)

Could you include a 24x24 version of the images? I manually scaled my own, but for people that want to use the default menu in Ubuntu 8.10 a 24x24 icon will work without messing up the size of the panel.

I'm not sure if at this size the icons will look nices. But ok... I will add this size for the next version.

cool, thanks

check /usr/share/icons, you need root permissions to edit that directory
the .icons folder in your home directory is for icon sets that you download for your account.

How you do install this onto Ubuntu 8.10?

The .icon folder has no content and the gconf-editor does have any of the settings you're claiming. There's no properties... there's "key" but no properties.
