Author Topic: ( Solved) how to change wifi and volume icons on xfce panel on VL7 std  (Read 3029 times)

Can anyone explain how to change the xfce panels wifi and volume icons to a matching set. I have potential icons but do not know where to place them for use.

I did try adding themes but it has no effect on the wifi and volume

If I could find the actual icon location(s)

would I simply replace them with different icons of the same name?

any help would be appreciated.

What icon theme you are using?
I found some nm-applet icons under /usr/share/icons/Faenza/status/

PS: it would be more easier if you post your current wifi/volume icons for reference

actually, did solve this for myself just now.
found icons in:/usr/share/pixmaps/wicd/..&../usr/share/xfce4mixer/icons/
Icons replaced with same name alternative as suspected.
