You are right: icons in Linux applications are not packaged in a resource file like WinDoze duz. Instead, they are either separate files installed by the RPM, or they are embedded in the program text where they look a lot like orginary code. Two solutions come to mind: 1) Pick them out of the RPM file. Say you have a program "foo" and you know there are icons associated with it. Using The Force, Luke, you can use this command line string: $ rpm -q -f $(which foo) -l | egrep -i '.(png|jpg|gif|xpm|xbm)$' to see a list of image files installed by the RPM which owns the executable "foo". (If you already know the path to the "foo" executable, just replace the "$(which foo)" with that path. 2) Cheat by using a screen shot... HTH -- I'm already an anomaly, I shall soon be an anachronism, and I have every intention of dying an abuse!
