View Full Version : Creating GNOME Icon Themes Inquiry
23rd March 2010, 01:41 AM
How do I create my own GNOME ICON THEME? I want to replace the Fedora logo on the Start Menu and tweak the other icons as well. I am preparing a Live CD and I could use some help... Thanks in advance!

I get what others did and use it as a template.
you will need the GTK 2.0 and GDM to change things and there is a place somewhere about the splash image which I don't remember where it is located.

I have another question, if you based a custom Live CD on CentOS rather than Fedora 12, would you do so?

I think I don't quite understand your question, but if I used a spin for my personal use I would modify nothing, if I did it for a company that would depend on them wanting to have the logos of centOS or not or something custom or if a did it for distribution that I want to distribute by myself I would change all that.
About the legal part of it I have no idea, the law is confusing and there are many caveats on it and it can vary from state to state and country to country, but as a rule of thumb do not leave behind any old logo or art(sound or image), the software is open source but the art may be not and the trademarks are certainly not open.
You can always contact the CentOS developer and ask for permission or get permission from fedora or red hat to use some things.

I would like to say, that if you do use CentOS, please tailor it to your company if this is for any public use. And add in the IT tech support info. I do recall the article on the idiot who thought it was CentOS's responsibility for his computer problems, when it was his ISP rather. Lets try to leave them out of tech support contacts :D
Not saying you work with idiots, but there are alot of people who may not remember or have it slip their mind than we may like to admit (hell, it happens to me).
