Description:

greyscale kbfx buttons for mandriva, suse and one with tux for use with any other distros. Kicker's size needs to be set to "normal" for the buttons to look good.

The Suse button is from Revalines artwork. The kicker background is called glass from http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=24788 . The color scheme is called linmans and is available somewhere on this site.

You can log out of your session and back in again or resize kicker to normal size.

I simply drag and drop it on top of a kbfx button thats already in use and edit the panel preferences (kicker) so that its normal size. Can you post a screenshot somewhere so that I get a better idea of your problem. For a nicer appearance, you may also need to disable applet handles in the panel.

After you drag and drop, then resize the panel, there shouldn't be anything alse to do.If you change the panel size thoug, it will look wierd because the buttons are not resizeable.

That FF Icon, how did you set FF to have that fox instead of the default? I have been looking for a way to set icons or make an icon theme.

Yes, I am the same.

Okay, see that is exactly what is throwing me, I have no way of selecting the icon when I make a new link to application(launcher.) So, how do you go about that?

When you create a new launcher or edit an existing one, there is usually an icon of a KDE gear or a preset application icon. Click on that and you will get a dialogue box that will enable you to select a different icon for your launcher. My LQ username is reddazz.

Oh, you mean that big obvious icon looking guy, huh? Shoot, didn't realize it was a button, thought it was a preview.

I used the Firefox icon from here http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=26043. I didn't change the default icon, I just created a launcher for firefox and then selected the icon I wanted from the ones I downloaded from this site to use with the launcher.

Depending on how you installed firefox, you can make an icon and name it firefox.png and copy it to /usr/share/icons, /usr/share/pixmaps or your firefox directory and that should change the firefox icon globally.
