Ubuntu Mono Parcellite Icon

I love Parcellite! It makes the clipboard work on Linux and has features I never knew I wanted in the frist place! My favorite thing about it is that when you're not using it, you hardly notice it's there. With that in mind, I attempted an icon to make it blend well with the other panel icons in Lucid's theme~

The instructions for it are included in the download!

Feel free to use it, share it, modify it, etc. but don't claim it as your own or sell it! O:

Thank you!Using it for Glipper.
In order to reload your icon without logging out try to update the icons cache with:
sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/ICON_THEME

Where "ICON_THEME" is the icon theme for which you installed the new icon (For Ubuntu that would be Humanity).

Thanks for posting this, it's so much better than what originally ships with CrunchBang.

I use Ubuntu 12.04 and clipit as clipboard manager. I copied the icon into /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps, renaming it to clipit-trayicon.svg and restarted cplipit. Works perfectly. Thank You.

People like you make the ubuntu community awesome.
Hello Ramzea!

I suggested your Parcellite icons to be added as default monochrome icons into ClipIt, which is based on Parcellite and stays with its good lightweight design. However, the author of the program said, that there is a problem with licenses. Creative Commons "Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike" 3.0 is not compatible with Debian licensing system. However, if you can drop "Noncommercial" part of the license, you icons can be added. This is needed for the ClipIt program to be distributed in Debian repositories (where also Ubuntu gets it).

What do you say? Would you like to have your icons added to ClipIt as default icons for Ubuntu build?

For ClipIt see [link] [link]

For Debian-compatible licenses see [link]

I don't mind at all. The icon's kinda old but I failed recently at a reboot (I'm not very good with vector art). Anyway, I made the license CC-BY-SA so it should be compatible now.

Hey, great icon. But it works perfetly in Lucid but in Maverick, i try to put icon in /usr/share/icons/Humanity/actions/24/ but it doesn't work. Have you an idea ?
Ramzea's avatar
Ah~! Try putting it in ubuntu-mono-dark or ubuntu-mono-light. Ubuntu ships with Humanity but doesn't use it, if I remember correctly.

And I'm not sure you're aware of it, but Parcellite's development has stopped. The developer apparently lost interest. I recommend giving Glippy a shot. You can run it in the notification area or indicator applet, and it ships with a colored icon but has an optional mono icon you can install from the repos. Check here for the PPA: [link]

Thanks for reply. I've try in ubuntu-mono-dark/actions/24/ but it doesn't work too.

I didn't know about Parcellite's dev, so i think i'll try an other clipboard manager.

Thanks.
Hi would you mind me trying to make this the default icon when installing under Ubuntu?

I'm not sure what you mean. Did you intend to suggest it as a default icon for Ubuntu? I don't think that would be wise, and I'm sure they'd tell you the same. The icon it replaces is also used by other applications, and it's used more often in a toolbar or menu than it is in the panel. That was my main issue with it.
