UFFF

Have again a small problem with my NOP. This time is it about icons. My menu was missing some application icons. I found out, that I can repair it editing the scripts in usr/share/applications and usr/share/desktop-directories.It was easy:)

Ok, but somehow I can't find the place where I can edit the right click mouse menu Sad I am still missing there some Icons of the terminal ans some other stuff

Hello again

As you did not say what Puppy (Puplet) version you are using,
i can only tell you what i discovered while mooching about in NOP431.

Those icons are called from: /root/.config/Thunar/uca.xml

Here is the relevant snippets of code from that file:
Code:
<action><icon>terminal</icon><name>Open Terminal Here</name><command>exo-open --working-directory %f --launch TerminalEmulator</command><description>Example for a custom action</description><patterns>*</patterns><directories/></action>


Code:
<action><icon>xfce4-appfinder</icon><name>Find Here ...</name><command>pfilesearch -d %f</command><description>Find in subfolders</description><patterns>*</patterns><directories/></action>


Doing a search for each of the icons mentioned,
pointed me to these:

    /usr/share/icons/Neu-blue/24x24/apps/terminal.png
    /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/xfce4-appfinder.png

To prove that this is indeed how they are being called,
i added an icon of my own in each of the above directories,
and amended the code in /root/.config/Thunar/uca.xml accordingly.

As you can see from the attached image, my thinking was correct.

Hopefully this will help

P.S
Please, in future could you mention what Puppy version you are using,
as it will help people to help you.

Wow!! Thanks again CatDude:)

This is it !! /root/.config/Thunar/uca.xml

the only different is my icons are placed in usr/share/pixmaps

Right-I forgot to mention which puppy I am using
My version is NOP413, couse I have some problem with booting with 431
(getting kernel panic on start- my laptop is really old Smile)

Thanks again Smile

Hello swiatmar

Glad to hear that it worked.

Just remember to stipulate what Puppy version you are using in future,
and help may then come a little quicker than if you do not.

All the best
CatDude
