Description:

A modern spinner for gnome. In the archive there are other 2 colors.

This is a icon, so you must copy it in you icon theme, it can be in your home folder(it's a hidden folder .icons)or in /usr/share/icons/. In my case the I have to copy it in ~/.icons//128x128/spinner/process-working.png
Depending by icon theme it can be different.
Remember to reload your icon theme by changing it in gnome-appearance-properties. Tell me if you have some problems.

You can also searching for working-progress.png in your icon theme folder, then overwrite it(make a backup first).

-----------------------------------
P.S. If you don't have this folders, you can create it, but you have to add this line in you "icon.theme" file by editing.

How do you have achieved the technique for creating the "moving" grid? Can you please drop me a line on that (or pointing an SVG source)?

I tried to create mine on my own some time ago without good results whatsoever and I am making a whole icon theme in my spare time.

Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry...I don't have anything. But maybe I can help you. I think i understand something about how it works. You have to create a new image of size (K + 1)*(Y)x(Y).
Y is size you want...I've used 36 but maybe it's better to use a big size and resize it at the end.
K are the number of frame in the animation.
So if you want to create a animation 32x32 in 8 frames, you have to create a new image with size 288x32.

Then you can think to this image as divided in squared frames...In the formula you can notice i wrote "K+1" this because the first frame it's the spinner when is not loading(I left it empty).
I think this is all. Excuse me for my catastrophic English :-S i hope this will be useful...

This is a icon, so you must copy it in you icon theme, it can be in your home folder(it's a hidden folder .icons)or in /usr/share/icons/. Now, if your icon theme it's called Oxygen, open the oxygen folder, there are some folder as 32x32, 48x48 etc...in my case the folder is 128x128. In this folder you can find other folder, "spinner" in which you must copy this icon.
Remember to reload your icon theme by changing it in gnome-appearance-properties. Tell me if you have some problems...

P.S. If you don't have this folders, create it and add this line in you "icon.theme" file by editing.

What folder does it go into in the theme folder? I also use the oxygen theme and I don't see an "other" folder to copy my stuff in. Thanks again

I make some attempt. The easier way to install it in oxygen theme is to put it in /oxygen/22x22/animations..but you can't use the original png because is too big. This one fit better...www.almastudents.com/download/spinner.tar.gz
