How to make Unity Launcher backlight use one colour? I want my launcher backlight all coloured with blue..
You will need the Gimp to do that.
First, we need to backup some launcher icons.
Open a terminal:
Now, we copy these 4 files to our newly created folder
Ok. Files are backed up and copied to our home folder.
Go to "File" -> "Open" . Open your folder "launchericons" and select the first png: launcher_icon_back_54.png .
Now, we have to choose the colour we want to use:
click on "Foreground & Background colors" (screenshot)
Select the color you want (see the arrows, you can also use the eyedropper (circled) to select a blue anywhere on your desktop).
Make sure you write down somewhere the HTML notation of your selected color.
Now select in the Toolbox the "Bucket Fill Tool" and click in your launcher png in Gimp's main window (the little one):
Save the changed png, and repeat the same process with the other 3 png's.
Then, copy all 4 files back to
Logout and login back to unity and your backlights are now blue.
