Change Gnome Start-here Icons Howto.

This is the basic configuration howto about change the gnome start here icons.

Common two ways:

  1. to directly replace the original start-here png with the alternative one you like to do. as following:

cd /usr/share/icons/gnome/24*24/places/ mv start-here.png start-here.png.bak cp your-own-starticon.png start-here.png git-update-icons-cache /usr/share/icons/gnome/

And then, just restart your X window, and Thats all.

  1. Another method is to configure the gnome configuration file to add your customize icon path. as following: open the gconf-editor tools and then select the apps -> panel -> objects -> object_3, and just check the use_costom_icon, then edit the key as your icon paths. Thats all.
