|Neverless, I have script updated many extensions to add a resized 32x32 .xpm icon. The original 48x48 icon in .xtdesktop remains for continued compatibiliy with DSL 3.x and prior versions.|
Now when 4.0 is loading an extension, either at boot up or dynamically a check is made to see if an xpm icon is in /tmp/mydsl.icons and if so the application specific one is used otherwise the fallback generic "open box" icon will be used.
So let me get this straight, future extension makers catering for
both 4.x and pre-4.x will put a 48x48 icon in .xtdesktop as usual, and add a 32x32 icon in /tmp/mydsl.icons/ ?
Yes this is correct.
I don't want to keep xtdesktop around anymore, can't go back and change what is out there. Don't want to stop supporting prior versions of DSL. And did not like a mix of 48x48 and 32x32. Afterall, DSL has an image to keep up. ;)
You can easily use the imagemagick extension /opt/imagemagick/bin/convert to resize and retype your images.
