I know that the texture files for the launcher are in /use/share/unity/5 but I remember the exact files to "erase". I want to make the icons look like windows 7 icons, with no border around them, as well with the dash home icon. I still want the arrows to the side of the icons to show what application I am using.


I don't want the borders.

The files are:

  • launcher_icon_shadow_62.png
  • launcher_icon_back_54.png
  • launcher_icon_edge_54.png
  • launcher_icon_glow_62.png
  • launcher_icon_shine_54.png
  • squircle* (all files beginning with 'squircle')
