      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Mandrake's logo needs work

Recommended Posts

A childish yellow star on a light blue background. Silly.

 

I believe we need something with more character, but if Mandrake wants to keep it, we definitely need a new star and other colors.

 

 

Is there I way I can change the logo on my start button?

sure it can be changed. just go to your /usr/share/icons/kde-default directoy and change in all apps-subfolders the name of the mdk-menu.png to ... dunno... i have put a "1" before it. or erase the mandrake-star icon. you should get back the default icon-theme menu-icon. for gnome it is quite similar. just browse mandrakes gnome-icon-folders... but keep in mind that some icon sets like d3a icons have beautiful, modified mandrakestars as default menu-button.

 

with respect to change the mandrake-logo: well, i would change it too, if i were able, but this is entirely in the hands of mandrake and not of this board. and if they decide to stick to the mandrake star... it's their problem.

 

p.s: maybe they will have to change their name alltogether in the next five years (as far as i know)... so, who knows what the icon will look like then... maybe this → :beer:

 

:D

And I like that little star.

 

Me too :beer:

And it's easy to change the blue background, just a setting in kde control center, desktop, panels settings.

 

The yellow star is not silly at all :D Says something about the magic mandrake :-)

sure.... but the graphics needs some work. it looks kinda dull in my eyes... too much greyness in it, that is: contrast too low, saturation too low. and it would look better if it had a small red outline imho. :)
