So I'm kinda new to Linux, just installed Lubuntu and love it.

I have this "minimize all windows" button in my panel (next to bluetooth, battery, wi-fi etc...) but it's kinda ugly and I'd like to give it a symbolic icon from the icon set I use so it matches the rest of my applets.

I thought I just need to right click and then go to "Minimize All Windows" settings but there's only one tickable option which says "alternately iconify/shade and raise", but it doesn't seem to do anything for me.

So is there a way to change a panel applet's icon? Maybe manually? I'm using Lubuntu 17.10 and LXPanel 0.9.3 for LXDE.


copy any icon you like from /usr/share/icons/ to ~/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/images/

add it to ~/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/gtkrc

style "wincmd"
   engine "pixmap" {
      image {
         function = FLAT_BOX
         file     = "images/your-image.png"
         border   = { 4, 4, 4, 4 }
         stretch  = TRUE
