Description Stephen John Smoogen 2003-02-14 06:23:04 UTC
Description of problem:

xterm needs to be linked against an icon. Currently it has the default page
icon, but should probably use the gnome-xterm.png icon. I am not sure where this
gets linked so put it in redhat-artwork.

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2003-02-18 19:41:44 UTC
The icons are set by the apps themselves, so xterm code would require modification. 

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-18 23:04:38 UTC
This is a feature enhancement/modification that the xterm author (Thomas Dickey)
would have to make to upstream sources first and then get integrated into
XFree86, and then into Red Hat Linux via upstream.

If you would like to see this enhancement made, please email the xterm
author directly, or the xfree86@xfree86.org mailing list to request the

Closing enhancement request as UPSTREAM

Comment 3 Thomas E. Dickey 2003-02-21 21:01:17 UTC
actually not.  It's a customization that Redhat could easily make without compiling 
xterm.  It would be done by setting the iconPixmap resource, e.g.,
   *iconPixmap: terminal
Although the "terminal" pixmap is in the standard distribution, I don't recall seeing
it used for a very long time (X11R4).  A more suitable choice would be what KDE
uses - I don't know the name of that file.

Ok this looks like a build patch then..
