Icon Themes are pretty simple. They are nothing more than nineteen selected Icons for display in the Menu Theme. The icons are 64 X 64 PNG files except firefox_icon, themepreview, and thunderbird_icon which are 256 X 256 PNG files that GnoMenu scales to fit into the display of the Menu Theme. (NOTE: There is a known issue with scaling at this time.)

The XML file format is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<content type="Icon">
<theme>
<ContentData Name="Icon Theme name" Author="Icon Theme Creator" Copyright="License or Copyright Holder"/>
</theme>
</content>

Icons should be 64 X 64 in png format unless otherwise noted:

Required Icons are;
firefox_icon (256 X 256)
m_computer
m_connect
m_controlpanel
m_defaults
m_documents
m_games
m_help
m_home
m_music
m_network
m_pictures
m_recentitems
m_search
m_synaptic
m_videos
no_user_image
themepreview (This is the Icon that will be shown in the preferences menu 256 X 256)
thunderbird_icon (256 X 256)
