Re: light or dark indicators
Hi again, Daniel:
Well, I learned a lot (like that is mandatory to call
gtk-update-icon-cache after installing new icons if you want to ensure
that they are fully recognized), but I've been unable to make the
symbolic icons work.
I created a symbolic-like version of my icons, and after a lot of work
(the gtk-update-icon-cache problem) I was able to make them work, but
the color was the color key instead of the fg-color from GTK.
I tried then to use a true symbolic icon (icon
audio-volume-high-symbolic) to try to discard errors in my icon, and
found that it was also being incorrectly rendered: the color key wasn't
being replaced by fg-color.
I'm using libappindicator, and to set the icon I use the call
"set_icon_full", specifying the icon name as-is, including the
"-symbolic" at the end.
I don't know what I'm doing incorrectly :?
