How can I change the Shutter try icon to match my theme?

Asked by Duncan Lock on 2010-05-10

Is there a way to change the icon that shutter uses in the system tray/notification area, so that it matches my theme? Can I change it to a custom icon, basically?

Here is a quick way to have your own icon:

1) Check what theme you currently use
2) Navigate to the folder /usr/share/icons/<your-theme>/apps/<icon_size>
3) place your custom icon there (needs root privileges)
4) Update the icon cache of this theme, example:
sudo gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/ubuntu-mono-dark/
5) Restart Shutter

Does this work for you?

Yep, excellent explanation, problem solved - thankyou!

If anyone is interested, the humanity-dark icon that I created for shutter is available here:

and looks like this when used in the panel on Ubuntu Lucid:

I would like to ship your humanity-dark (ubuntu-mono-dark) icon with the next release of Shutter. Are you fine with that?
Do you think you have time to create another icon for the ubuntu-mono-light theme?

This would be really great.

That would be great - I'm very happy for you to ship it. I've attached
copies of the icon for both ubuntu-mono-dark and light.

Thanks,
Duncan Lock

Ok, so you can't email attachments to launchpad, my bad.

I've uploaded the icons here:

Nice, thanks. I've committed your icons. They will be included in the next release of Shutter.
