I want to replace the synaptic icon (although it could be any other).
/usr/share/applications there is "Synaptic Package Manager", and it contains
Icon=synaptic. Now, I kinda guess that I maybe know that the dock uses the 48x48 size of icons, but when I put both "synaptic.svg" and "synaptic.png" (because I don't know how to figure out which extension is being looked for), even a plain "synaptic" in my 48x48 theme folder (and others, and other themes... etc, even using
~/.icons to be sure it gets looked up first), guess what?
The icon doesn't change.
Not even after a lot of
gtk-update-icon-cache whatevertheme both in
usr/share/icons and in
I'm a bit confused. It's a freaking icon. I've
sudo find / -name "*synaptic*"ed and all, (restart included), but I don't see the icon that is actually being used. There must be something that I'm missing...
So I turn to you. It can't be this crushingly impossible to find out what icon is being used. I'm open to consider attaching debuggers and/or dissemblers if necessary (that could be memorable), but I have made the decision that I'm gonna change that icon.
Would you please help me, if you can? I will thank you a lot.
This is Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, the theme is "elementary", and my computer is a pretty standard Acer laptop.
