    Hi ronin,

    We simply replaced all Blender icons, and compiled the software :)

    It’s not one location only, and not one icon only. It’s several locations. A few ones resides in the iconsheet for example. In release\datafiles\blender_icons.svg. The alert_icons.svg in the same folder also contains a blender icon. And a few more are in release\freedesktop\

    And i am pretty sure there are more that i can’t remember at the moment.

    The only one that really makes trouble is the blender_icons.svg. Here you need to generate the dat files for the icons.

    We have a tutorial available how to change the icons in the blender_icons.svg. Hope that helps. https://www.bforartists.de/data/tuts/Icontutorial.pdf

    Oh, and don’t use Inkscape version 1, but the old version 0.9x. Version 1 makes trouble with the old iconsheet and the python script to convert the icons to dat.

    Kind regards

    Again, it is not one, it is a few. The icon in release/freedesktop is used for the Linux starter icon from what i remember.

    I think the icon in the header is in release\datafiles\blender_icons.svg . And it is not done to simply replace it in the svg iconsheet. You need to run the python script to create the dat files. See linked tutorial. The alert_icons.svg does also have a python script to update the icons. And this Blender icon is used fo the taskbar afaik.

    Kind regards
