A new icon for PS3 Media Server

Postby z1lt0id » Mon Jun 25, 2012 5:24 am

Hi developers,

Just wondering if I could create an icon for the system tray that wouldn't look so ugly. Currently it has a grey background around a small image of a ps3. Is it possible to input icons with a transparent background into it? Would you like me to create an icon for future use?

Regards,

What sizes would you like the icon to be? And should I just upload them to this forum thread?

The current icon used for Linux is "icon-16.png" in the resources/images directory.
I have no Linux, so I cannot tell you what size icon would be nice.
Isn't the size of tray icons very dependent of the window manager and theme settings?

The icons don't actually have a grey background. Java has a bug that affects X (see http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bu ... id=6453521).
When I did some searching I came across this: https://github.com/taksan/native-tray-adapter which looks promising at least for systems using GTK. The nice thing is that it falls back gracefully to native AWT if GTK isn't present.

On the plus side it looks like the issue might get fixed in JDK 8 (http://answerpot.com/showthread.php?359 ... planned%3F)
I won't be holding my breath.

I can't spreak for anyone else running PMS on Linux but icon-16.png is too small for the tray. On Cinnamon it gets blown up and looks horribly pixelated. I suspect that using the icon-32.png or icon-22.png would be nicer. I think that with image auto size on (which it is in BasicSystemUtils) it will scale down if it has to.
