Mono icons for Synapse’s new app indicator

In an update to semantic launcher ‘Synapse’ an indicator-applet landed and, for now at least, it’s not optional…

As someone who values the advance of mono-isation, the velvet green of the Synapse icon is a little bit out of keeping with the rest of my panel.

Thankfully this is easy to resolve for now thanks to these neat icons by Eduardo Rivas

  • Download Synapse-mono-icons.tar.gz
  • Right click on the archive and extract
  • Choose your desired mono icon.svg and delete the number suffix.
  • Hit ALT+F2 and enter: -
  • gksu nautilus /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/
  • Move the mono Synapse .svg icon of your choice to the above folder, replacing the original.

Don’t forget to make a back-up of the original icon incase you wish to re-use it at a later date.
