No other pesky program update will overwrite them.

Ours might. smile

True, if we're talking about customization done by an individual user. In that case, indeed ~/.local/share/applications is the place to put them.

I think we should encourage users to avoid directly editing system files as much as possible, if there's a local solution.

Re: Tint2 launcher icons

I would like everything to be easier ...

For me the solution was to:

sudo nano /usr/share/applications/bl-www-browser.desktop
Icon = google-chrome

You don't need to use root privileges for that, just copy the .desktop file to $HOME:

cp /usr/share/applications/bl-www-browser.desktop ~/.local/share/applications

Then edit ~/.local/share/applications/bl-www-browser.desktop as your normal user.

Re: Tint2 launcher icons

Edit: I had a question regarding a launcher icon, however it is solved now. jgmenu creates a .desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications, where "Icon=distributor-logo-bunsenlabs" works for e.g. Plank or the file manager. However this did not work for tint2 after creating a launcher icon (showing a different icon, not the #bĺ logo). In order to use the logo, the full path to the icon-file has to be defined in the .desktop file (the svg format did not work here [showing a white square], but e.g. png is fine).

Re: Tint2 launcher icons

I was thinking. Thinking about my old system, which I am at at this very moment. I was using openbox with tint2, just like BunsenLABS does. I have tweaked the looks of the tint2 panel and came up with the results below.

The icons (left-to-right) are: root-menu(openbox-menu), terminal(st@tmux), file manager(xfe) and web browser(qupzilla). High contrast, easy-on-eyes inverted black-on-white. What you think?
