Full Version: "start Menu" Icon

What's up y'all? here's my problem: I can't figure out how to get rid of the ugly red hat icon on my "start" button. I'm running RedHat 9, GNOME desktop. I feel i've exhaused all prefs/config menu's to no avail...but i know there is a way

I want to change it back to the GNOME footprint icon that it's supposed to be. I wish RH didn't change it mad.gif

I found the solution elsewhere since no one responded to my post here. In case anyone else has the same question, i will quote the solution in part:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since you can't change the icon by right-clicking on it as usual what I did was simply find the RedHat icon and rename it and then replace it with the Gnome icon. The name of the redhat icon is redhat-main-menu.png which, on my machine, is located in three directories:

/usr/share/pixmaps/redhat-main-menu.png
/usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/48x48/apps/redhat-main-menu.png
/usr/share/icons/gnome/48x48/apps/redhat-main-menu.png

Just go in there and move the Gnome icon into those directories but make sure the Gnome icon gets the redhat-main-menu.png name or else it won't work.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Of course this won't apply to KDE, but i'm sure the solution would be something very similar...
