Sometimes you want to change the simple things in Linux, just because you can. In my case, I felt like using Tux as my menu button for a change, so here’s how to do change it in any Mate desktop…
- If you don’t have a ~/.icons directory, create it in the terminal with mkdir ~/.icons
- Navigate to your icon folder (usually in ~/.icons)
- Copy your desired icon theme there
- Open the 24×24 size
- Open the actions folder
- Create or replace the png icon with the name start-here.png
Personally, I use the Mist theme which is a nice generic blue set of icons the stands out nicely on my favorite boring grey colour of #222222.
