[SOLVED] KMenu Icon?

Thu Jan 01, 2009 3:46 am
Anyone know how I can replace the standard KMenu icon in KDE4? I figured it out once before but I can't seem to find the correct image to replace.

Thanks!

You can launch dolphin as root and change the icon /usr/share/icons/oxygen/32x32/places/start-here-kde.png

Also remember to change the icons of other sizes (48x48 and larger/smaller)

Please be careful while handling dolphin as root as you get write access to all system files.

Due to a bug, Dolphin cannot be easily launched as root, it requires tedious steps that do not always work. It is far easier to use Konqueror ( kdesu konqueror /usr ) which works without a problem.

Wow, that is strange, I can launch dolphin with any problems (using kdesudo as well as sudo -- though I prefer the latter)

I get the "Cannot talk to klauncher" error, which is mentioned in this bug report

Maybe its a kdesu-specific problem. (kdesudo works fine here too)
...but this is sorta getting off topic. :P

Thanks! I got it figured out.

By the way, I get the same error with "kdesu dolphin".
