Skype version 4.2 comes with a low res 48x48 statusbar/tray icon. How can I change the icon to a higher resolution icon?
I made a .deb package with a hack that compels sni-qt:i386 to use images located in /usr/share/pixmaps/skype/ directory for systemtray skype status icons, based on webguruz.ru page posted by @user312051.
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/x91gec5q0uz3hnx/sni-qt_0.2.6-0ubuntu1_i386-modified.deb?dl=0 -O sni-qt_0.2.6-0ubuntu1_i386-modified.deb sudo dpkg -i sni-qt_0.2.6-0ubuntu1_i386-modified.deb
Then you need to install new icons, for that follow the steps bellow:
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/wimn53noljv0vbi/skype_systemtray_custom_icons.zip?dl=0 -O skype_systemtray_custom_icons.zip unzip skype_systemtray_custom_icons.zip sudo mkdir /usr/share/pixmaps/skype sudo cp skype/* /usr/share/pixmaps/skype sudo chmod +r /usr/share/pixmaps/skype/*
The icon set I provide here is based on Faenza-Dark Theme, for change the icons, just replace the images in /usr/share/pixmaps/skype directory.
sudo dpkg -r sni-qt_0.2.6-0ubuntu1_i386-modified.deb sudo rm -r /usr/share/pixmaps/skype
