Customize how?

i would like to change the images of these buttons: I use the "humanity" icons theme and i want panflute's buttons to have the same look that this. I thought it was possible to replace some image files by others that i created.
Tanks for your help

That should work already; the Panflute applet takes all its icons from the current theme, and updates its appearance whenever the theme changes.

Hey Paul, Congratulations on Panflute! Is really good, works great.

I've a question about this topic though. Is it possible to change the size of the playback buttons or use different ones than the theme's default? I am using the HumanityDark icons on Ubuntu Karmic and the playback buttons are huge! They use all the height of the panel, on the other hand, when using the Human icons, the buttons are smaller and nicer. Is it possible to use other icon set different than the one being used?
Thanks in advance!

It *might* be possible to override the icon theme for a particular application -- looking through the documentation at would be a good place to start to see if it can be done.

The applet uses whatever the icon theme specifies and scales it to fill the available space; if the icons look smaller in one theme, it might be because there's more empty space around that icon in its image file.

Thanks Paul, that solved my question!
I created copies of the icon themes and edited what I wanted so it all looks the same but the playback buttons.

Can you help with this problem?
