I'm currently trying (and failing) to make a system icon theme for the Ubuntu LightDM login screen. I really hate the default
ubuntu-mono-dark icons, and would like to use my own set of icons.
After experimenting with icon names for a few hours, Google searching for a bit, and referring to existing system themes like
ubuntu-mono*, I can't determine which of the hundreds of icons are actually used at the login screen.
So, I'm looking for two things here really:
- What categories of icons does LightDM use? actions, apps, stock, status, etc?
- What are the names of the icons that LightDM looks for?
From what I can tell, the indicators seem to be the same ones from the Unity desktop space (
indicator-keyboard, etc.). As such, I would've thought that using icon-names associated with those indicators would work, however LightDM doesn't seem to like the names that I'm using and simply shows an incomplete theme at login.
Note that I am aware that LightDM only looks for icons under
/usr/share/icons/ and that I've been the applying theme with ubuntu-tweak.
EDIT: After struggling with getting the names, I still haven't found the correct answer. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
