How to change battery icon?
« on: February 02, 2019, 11:01:29 am »
Opening the menu, I saw that there is an "icons navigator" app. Is it for changing icons? How does it work?
I would like to change that ugly green default "battery status" icon with one icon available in the "icons navigator".


P.S. How can I insert pics on this post?

Hi. There should be an app called LXAppearance. You can change icons, and some other visuals there.
If for some reason you won't be able to find it, you can easily install it with
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
sudo apt install lxappearance

Ok thanks...lami07...lxappearance is yet installed by default and I used yet for changing other windows and icons too but nothing about panel icons.
Anyway, what the "icons navigator" default app is for?

The icon I would change is the green cilinder that I added to show the battery status in the lower panel. Lxappearence does not work for it. And the "setting battery menu" that appears then allowes to change only colors (but not the icon) using colours code.
I would like to write also a pair of issues that I see after the installation.
Where can I write about it?

1. Have you installed any additional icon sets before trying lxappearance? (For example faenza-icon-theme or papirus-icon-theme)

2. What edition of Sparky do you use? (I'm guessing it's stable branch)

3. What's you desktop environment? (I'm guessing it's lxde)

4. If you want to post an image, you will have to do two things:

a) upload chosen image to some image hosting service like https://postimages.org

b) post link to the image.

5. Proper place to report any Sparky related issues would be this very forum.
