First, thanks blurymind for these icons; they're great!

I'm using KDE, and I just right-click a tlz file, select properties, general tab, and click the edit file type button.  I'm not sure how you would do in something else (I think you use xfce).  ???

Come to think of it, I may have added a new mime type for tlz in KDE Control Centre > KDE Components >File Association ... sorry, it's been a while since I set it up.

well, how does one associate icons with mimetypes in xfce4? Does anybody know at all?

lol... it represents a hard to break vesel that has something sweet inside...and its less predictable and dull. You are all thinking in the box,while you should be thinking out of it like me,and stop imitating all the common things.  ;)

anyways,i thought it's hopeless,so i gave up on the icon thing. I think that nobody is concerned about tlz icons for vec 6 and you will all will be probably stuck with a blank sheet icon for that.  ;D

thanks,but it seems most people wanna stick to the box thingy.
well, i made box combo icons. Its pretty easy to take some other tar icon and just put "tlz" sign in front.
So devs,if you wanna keep it to the standarts , why dont you at least make an icon fro tlz yourselves and include it. The blank sheet icon for vec's official packaging standart is just screaming "unpolished distro" to the users

the tlz memtype icon is setup and being used in 5.9
if you want to fix it in your 5.8 you need to add this:

    <glob pattern="*.tar.lzma"/>
    <glob pattern="*.tlz"/>
  </mime-type>
to the /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml
then you need to run "update-mime-database /usr/share/mime"
finally you need to have an icon called application-x-compressed-tlz.png in the mimetypes folder of the icon set you are using.
I think /usr/share/icons/Vista-Inspirate_1.0 was the default on 5.8

You must not have tried a 5.9xx for a while Blurry.  :)
Here's the icon (in the largest size) that's currently the default for .tlz

Please do. I despise the icon's low quality.

here's a quick try:

(needs a bit of cleaning)

and a futuristic take (just a doodle):


for best quality,i can remake the icon in svg format.

This was the TLZ icon I made a long time with vpackager in mind. I just thought I would like to share it with everyone (:.


Sorry for bringin up an old thread.

Edit: anyone know the font they use in "vectorlinux" text in the current website banner ? Thanks.
