frostwire-4.13.1.7 in testing
« on: April 15, 2007, 06:26:46 am »

FrostWire is an open-source peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing program. It uses the Gnutella network and is heavily based on the better-known LimeWire program. It also works with 'torrent files.

frostwire itself works great. It has a start menu entry,but doesnt have an icon.


resize it to 64x64 and save it as a pixmap . This is the only thing that this package lacks.

This is a great addition to the repo.Thank you for packaging it. :)

/usr/share/icons/hicolor/64x64/apps is where the icon is located. I'm guessing that you're meaning a desktop icon?, If so then maybe just link to there with the dekstop file.

the icon doesnt show in the start menu.

my guess is that you have made a desktop file that doesnt pick it up.

I just downloaded this onto a nearly fresh installation of SOHO-5.8-Final. In the Internet menu, it shows the icon.


When I installed onto Standard-5.8-Gold , I also see the icon there too.
I am unsure why it is not showing up for you.

Hm interesting. I was thinking that it could possibly be an icon theme, but from the rest of your menu, it looks like you're using same icon theme. Then I thought that maybe there was a specified icon size in the desktop file,, that's also incorrect, as it doesn't specify size, and other sizes are available.

for what it's worth, I forgot to include my xfce from standard in the last post, so I included it this time.
