                      Icons for wmnetselect


How to change to one of the other included xpm files in the xpm directory.

  For example, to change to the netscape4/negative4 xpm pair,

  1. Change the netscape.xpm symbolic link to xpm/netscape4.xpm,
     and the negative.xpm to the xpm/negative4.xpm
 
        ln -sf xpm/netscape4.xpm netscape.xpm
        ln -sf xpm/negative4.xpm negative.xpm

  2.  Re-compile wmnetselect, and view the new icon:
  
  	 make clean ; make
          

To add a new (pixmap)icon:

  1. Copy the new xpm file to the wmnetselect-0.8/xpm directory.
  
  2. Edit the .xpm file to make sure the icon name (the first non-comment
     line) looks something like this:
  
        static char *netscape[] = {
  
  It's important that the variable after  static char  be  *netscape[]
  
  3.  Make the 'negative.xpm'.  I use the ImageMagick 'display' utility.
      Just "display netscape.xpm", and select the Enhance->Negate menu and
      save the file as negative7.xpm, or something in the xpm directory.
   
  4.  As in step 2, edit the negative7.xpm file, such that the first non-comment
      line looks like:
  
        static char *negative[] = {

      (ImageMagick will save it as *magick[], change it!)
      
  5.  Change to the wmnetselect-0.8 directory, and create a symbolic link
      called netscape.xpm, and negative.xpm to the name of your new icons.
      
         ln -sf xpm/netscape7.xpm netscape.xpm
         ln -sf xpm/negative7.xpm negative.xpm

  6.  Re-compile wmnetselect, and view your new icon:
  
  	 make clean ; make

If you get compile errors (that you didn't get with the default icons),
it is because your icons are in the wrong format.  I've had good success
with opening them with ImageMagick and re-saving them under the same name.
If you do this, you MUST edit the xpm file and change the first non-commented
line, just like in steps 2 and 4.

The official ImageMagick WWW page is
http://www.wizards.dupont.com/cristy/ImageMagick.html

Icons can be up to 64x64, but in practice you should make them no larger than
60x60 to allow room for the Window Maker border.  You need a border so you can
drag wmnetselect to the dock or the clip.
