I installed Jupiter to try to improve my laptop's performance, and it's doing rather well :D
However, I use the Radiance theme (white windows, white topbar, black indicator applets etc.) and Jupiter only has a white icon, so I can't really see it... Is there any way for me to change it?

I just created 3 icons by inverting the colors. Just extract the files in the archive to:

/usr/share/pixmaps/

You need Superuser access to do this and you can download the files here.

  • Thanks, that worked perfectly - didn't even have to restart Jupiter! – Bill O'Dwyer May 12 '12 at 16:47
  • Had to tweak them a little bit, just to really fit the theme: the icons aren't pure black, they're more grey. – Bill O'Dwyer May 12 '12 at 17:02
  • Not able to download icons... Why? – Ravi Aug 27 '12 at 9:31
  • Once you click on the download link, a new page opens. You can download the file by clicking on "Download" in the upper right corner. – Amir H. Sadoughi Nov 8 '12 at 22:05

Jupiter uses icons from /usr/share/pixmaps/ directory. I've looked through the source code of "Jupiter" and I've found that icon names are hard-coded in application:

def update_icon(self):
    m = self.jupiter.get_current_cpu_mode()

    if m == 'high':
        if loaded_indicator:
            self.ind.set_icon('bolt1')
        else:
            self.tray.set_from_icon_name('bolt1')
    elif m == 'powersave':
        if loaded_indicator:
            self.ind.set_icon('bolt4')
        else:
            self.tray.set_from_icon_name('bolt4')
    else:
        if loaded_indicator:
            self.ind.set_icon('bolt2')
        else:
            self.tray.set_from_icon_name('bolt2')

So you can replace the following icons with what you like:

/usr/share/pixmaps/bolt1.png 
/usr/share/pixmaps/bolt2.png 
/usr/share/pixmaps/bolt3.png  
/usr/share/pixmaps/bolt4.png

Surely you can change source code of "jupiter" :)

I've created some new icons here because I didn't like the bold design.
