How to change the Debian Menu Icon
The following tutorial covers the process of changing the default Debian Menu Icon to a custom Icon and in addition change the Debian Menu name. This is for those of us that prefer to use a pure Debian Linux Operating environment or a remix that is based on Debian. This process was tested using a clean install of Debian Etch. Other Debian releases may vary.
How to change the Debian Menu Icon:
- Create a custom icon and name it custom.png
- Move the icon to the following directory:
- Press Alt+F2 and type alacarte
- Right click Debian from the list and select properties.
- Change the Debian name to your desired name
- Click the icon image and browse to your custom.png file and select it.
- Close the window and enjoy the new icon!
Notes: Alternately you can simply replace the Debian Menu Icon by overwriting the original debian-logo.png file found in the /usr/share/pixmaps directory with your custom image.
