Hi, I've noticed RepSnapper doesn't have any logo or icon yet, so I've created a draft. If you like it, feel free to use it, if you keep my attribution.

Generally a nice idea to have an icon, but why the "S"?

@hroncok

As in repSnapper, as in speed, as in Superman :) And that supposed to be an S and infill at the same time.

@hurzl
Collaborator

As in Slic3r, which is bad ...

@hroncok

So would you preffer R?

@hurzl
Collaborator

I would prefer no letter, something more symbolic for a symbol ;)

@hroncok

Like this?

@hurzl
Collaborator

Well, it's still an S ...
how about some 3d spiral filament trace or somesuch, that's what I mean by symbolic

@hurzl
Collaborator

Well it could be interpreted as a trace, too ...
Do you know ad-hoc how to include/install this?
... nevermind, I found out

hurzl add icon thanks to hroncok 0ded565
@hroncok

Where it would be stored? It shoud probably be something sane, such as /usr/share/pixmaps/repsnapper.svg or /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/repsnapper.svg, don't forget to uncomment Icon in .desktop file.

Might be a good idea to add it to About dialog too...

@hroncok

Please update to this one: http://files.hroncok.cz/repsnapper-icon.svg (Updated metadata and resised)

Better now?

@hroncok

http://files.hroncok.cz/repsnapper-icon16.svg Easier variant to render 16x16 pixel icon

Looks good in opera.
Should it rather be installed besides repsnapper.ui than repsnapper.conf?

It should go to /usr/local/share/icons/.../scalable/apps and added to repsnapper.desktop.
How do I find that dir at installation?

that simple ...

hurzl install icon in system icon directory ed209f1
@hroncok

I'd suggest to install this small variant to $(datadir)/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/repsnapper.png

@hurzl
Collaborator

why a png?

@hroncok

As it's more recognizable in this small resolution often used in Apps menus.

app-menu-repsanpper

@hurzl

Is this really worth it? I can't see that this is better than my small icon from svg

@hroncok

It makes a mess in the Makefile and the source tree, I would like to see what the other people think.
Rendering is done once for that menu at start I would guess. A png has to be rendered, too.

@hroncok

Hi, it seams my icon is used in menus, but not used in the app itself, it still uses gtk-convert icon.
