Hi,

I use lately switched to openbox+pypanel+torsmo+idesk.

Now, all windows (like xterm, emacs, etc) have same icons in pypanel and on the window toolbar of openbox. Even ALT-TAB gives the same icons for all of them. However, some apps like firfox(yaa) get a different icon.

Can i get some help in modifying this behaviour to a more sensible, app-based icons?

thanks,
Kiran.

This is done because those applications do not have a set X icon for that purpose. There is nothing you can do to change that unless you code it into them.

no, he means the application itself. firefox etc have an icon taht they set for themselves to use, this is where the WM gets the icon from. Apps that don't do this just display a default icon.

I think there are some random utilities you can use to set an icon for an app... wmctrl or devil's pie perhaps? not sure on this.

may be this is stupid... but here is what i did to achieve what i wanted.

i want the pypanel to display the icons right. for xterm and emacs (i have very little use in the laptop using pypanel)

so, i code that up in pypanel. Not sure if this is good since i am not a code writer for butter (or bread for that matter).
(pypanel-2.2)



diff -u /usr/bin/pypanel.old /usr/bin/pypanel
