New Monochrome Icons for Pino, Hotot, Covergloobus (With Installations)

Leave a comment

Firstly, if you do not use covergloobus, you must because it is a nice application showing covers, lyrics etc with a delicious performance. I will put a screenshot about covergloobus and both mono item in this post. But first of all, lets move into covergloobus installation then we will change the tray icons for mono panels. (I am using dark icons on light panel with equinox evolution light controls)

Add these lines;

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gloobus-dev/covergloobus

sudo apt-get install covergloobus


You can see from this link both the beauty of covergloobus and mono tray icons.

It is useful to say before giving details about icons, they are original made icons regarding application but i like to use them for them and i choose the close ones.

Download this link;

Firstly with the covergloobus;

Put the covergloobus icon in the folder usr/shared/covergloobus/images with your root password using gksudo nautilus.

Secondly, Pino Twitter Application Tray Icons;

I adapted these icons from woofie adium icons but i think they are so sweet for pino.

Replace the icons in the folder usr/shared/pixmaps with the new ones. if you are using different theme than move that icons in the folder usr/shared/icons .. not yet finished and search for your theme, and put the icons in the status folder generally they are in 22*22. If you could not leave a comment. You can see mine from screenshot.

Third one is Hotot, you can see also alternative icon in the previous hotot post but i know prefer this icon because it suits more but it does not matter choose the one you liked. Previous post is here which you can also find the details about how to change the tray icon;

Jdownloader Icon for Equinox Evolution Light

1 Comment

Jdownloader icon is giving some problem with the theme you are applying because it puts background color to the transparent icons. If you want it to look like compatible with your panel you must apply same background color with it. I did one for myself that is 24*24 and i am using equinox evolution light controls in my theme. When putting this icon in the folder /home/.jdownloader/jd/logo and replace with the old one your panel will be compatible again with jdownloader.

Ubuntu has lots of multi platform chat client but if you are looking for msn alternative, emesene is absolutely best one. Installation is easy;

After the 0.8 version of dropbox you are able to change the dropbox icons on the panel. There is easy steps for this. Firstly you must update dropbox with the experimental one. Steps for this;
