Dear Friends,
Sparky 4.8.1 Minimal GUI Network icon seems very white and difficult to identify.
Please give a different visible icon.

Hi
Change the icon theme to do so.

Thank you for the reply.
if you don't mind please tell, where I have to put a new icon theme (e.g. Numix)?
GUI available for icon change?

Assuming you are using Lxqt or xfce you can change icon themes in the Appearance area (select the icon option).

How to add / change new icon set in OpenBox?

pavroo

You can do it in two ways:
1. Install a new icon package from repository
2. Download an archive package from 3th party web site, unzip/untar/unrar it and move a folder with icons to:
a. $HOME/.local/share/icons/
or (as root)
b. /usr/share/icons/

Then open from menu Settings -> Openbox Configuration (obconf) an choose your new icon theme.
Then relogin to take effects.

Dear Friend,
Thank you for the solution.
I will try it and inform you the result.

I'm new to Sparky but I've been using Openbox and/or LXDE distro for years.  Unless Sparky does something different, you can't change icons with ObConf, you need to also install lxappearance (gtk based system) or lxqt-appearance (qt based system).

Dear Friends,
I installed lxappearance and now I can manage and icon sets easily.
Thank you all.
