Qcad Professional, Ubuntu Install and icon

Postby gandalf » Sun Aug 02, 2009 12:55 pm

Where do I find a qcad icon to link to in the desktop? Can't seem to find the icon file in the install directory.

Thanks

SVG version

Postby user4096 » Wed Jan 12, 2011 12:22 am

I created an Inkscape Scalable Vector Graphic (.svg) file, based on PNG samples of the icon I found here (32x32 px) and elsewhere (64x64 px). The two PNG images don't match, as one is rather flat and the other appears to have been created with a kind of 3D shading effect. Anyhow, my SVG version is a starting point for anyone who wants to fix it up and make it fancier. The advantage of Inkscape is that it can generate PNG exports of vector images in almost any desired size, and once the appropriate PNG image is created, there are a number of programs that can be used to convert the raster image to other popular icon file formats. The GNOME desktop environment in Linux can use SVG files as icons directly, allowing them to be stretched at will on the desktop, without loss of image resolution.

This forum evidently doesn't allow file attachments, so you'll need to copy the following XML code into a plain-text editor and save the file as "qcad.svg", or similar. :wink:
