Does glipper use a separate icon for the panel?
If so , kindly mention the icon name used.

If not , it needs to be fixed in the app first.

I think it only uses the 3 icons listed in my first post. I don't see nothing more in the list of installed files.

Vish (vish) wrote :

Yeah , it only uses the icon name "glipper"
Ideally it should use a separate icon named "glipper-panel" or "glipper-symbolic" for use in the panel

-symbolic icons are being planned for Maverick and even gnome-shell ..
Needs fixing in glipper first

If there is an SVG icon available, please link me to it and I will commit it upstream.

Interesting icon, but what is it supposed to represent. Just a stylized G?

I guess so, yes. Unfortunatly, I'm no good at inkscape, but maybe it's a start for someone more skilled.

There is a neat monochrome icon available, although it was usually made for parcellite it could also be used for Glipper.

I whipped together an SVG in about 15 minutes. It's not a clipboard but a paperclip (I thought it'd be easier to distinguish at a glance). The color is for the Ubuntu-Mono-Dark theme but simple to change.

Just thought I'd add a preview of a rasterized version of this in use on my Unity menu bar in Natty.

This is the result using the icons proposed by TheGhost :

It looks good…

I've deleted my previous attachments. I will withdraw my suggestion for now. Thanks.

it's the 22x22 icon that needs to be replaced if you want to see the result in unity. i took the liberty to create the needed png file from Ramzeas svg and uploaded it here: http://www.2shared.com/photo/0F39qb6t/glipper.html

Is there any documentation on where to install the icon so that unity/gnome shell will find it and use it?
