A few icons

Unread postby DaJuice » Wed Jun 15, 2005 3:47 pm

I drew a couple more icons. They're pretty fun to make actually. :D Aterm, deerpark, firefox, and xchat. FTR files not included.
note: the firefox one has been updated from the last one I posted.

Thanks a lot for your icons.
Can you please tell me how to link them to my shortcuts on the desktop? I've aleady tried some times ago, but without success, and I don't remember how to do that.

Best regards

Hi there,
For each .fti icon file you will need a corresponding .ftr file. These ftr files should go in /usr/lib/filetype/install/ and the fti files should go in /usr/lib/filetype/install/iconlib/. Here is my firefox ftr for example:

Code: Select all

TYPE firefoxExecutable
    SUPERTYPE Executable
    MATCH tag == 770069;
    LEGEND web browser
    CMD OPEN      /usr/nekoware/bin/firefox
    CMD DROP       /usr/nekoware/bin/firefox $SELECTED
    ICON           {
                   if (opened) {
                            include("../iconlib/generic.exec.open.fti");
                   } else {
                            include("../iconlib/generic.exec.closed.fti");
                   }
                   include("/usr/lib/filetype/install/iconlib/firefox.fti"):
}



Things to take note of:

Obviously replace the firefox part of "firefoxExecutable" with the correct name for a given app. If it were a script instead of an executable you'd write that instead.

Supertype: Either executable or script

Match tag numbers: First go to the directory of the executable/script that you want to give an icon, and check to see if it has a match number already. Use the command tag -q myapp to do this. Usually developers are supposed to tag their stuff and you should not use a number that has already been taken by another program, but it's not like there are a ton of apps on irix, and the chances of picking a random number that has already been used is small. I used "tag 770069 firefox" to give firefox that match number as you can see. Also make sure not to forget this guy at the end of the number ---> ;

Legend: what you type here is the description you get when you right-click > Get Info. A short description of the program.

The last part of the .ftr is self-explanatory. This is a bare-bones ftr, they can have more funtionality besides drag & drop added to them.



Once you have your fti & ftr files in place change directory to /usr/lib/filetype and make sure you're a super user (type su, and then give root password). Enter "make -u". After it has finished doing its thing, log out and then log back in. If everything was setup correctly your programs should now have shiny new icons. :)

tag numbers

Unread postby zahal » Sat Jul 09, 2005 5:31 pm

Good question, I also tried to find a database of tag numbers a couple of days ago. I gave up and just used one, hopefully no other app I have installed uses it. So far so good. Nice to have realplayer8 on the IconCatalog with a custom made icon. BTW, has anyone tried to compile helixplayer?

The above link is broken as geocities has been taken down and these are the icon files I found on my NAS.
And I a can not attach the file to the wiki.
