Description:

I'm running kubuntu and was very annoyed by the default icon of firefox (it's just a pretty dark worldbowl and really not nice to look at). Changing the icons was easy, but after I replaced the icons in /usr/share/icons/ the icons of firefox window were still the default ones. I figured out, that there are additional icons in /usr/pixmaps and in /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox that had to be replaced to get a uniform looking firefox. And last but not least, due to ruffuseddy I was able to adjust firefox's about screen, too.

This is pretty much copying that has to be done after each update of firefox - which lately became very frequent... So I packed everything needed together and wrote a little bashscript to do the work. Since one need to replace files in /usr/share and /usr/lib the root password is needed for proper execution.

Credits for the firefox icon go to aax24vb (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=14153).

To install just upack and run the crystalfox.sh script.

IMPORTANT: As I said I'm running Kubuntu and adjusted the paths according to my installation. If you're running a different system, you should check and adjust the paths BEFORE running the script.

Thanks, goldenboy, now my gnome looks even prettier :)
Some suggestion:
1. IMHO, it'd be better to remove those sudo from the script (they will not work for everyone) and use a command like this:
su root -c "./crystalfox.sh"
2. In the tar.gz package you provide the directory is called crystalfox, but in the script it tries to work with /tmp/firefox. Please, unify this, (1) change the script to /tmp/crystalfox or (2) change the directory name to firefox. First options seems best, since second could lead someone to confusion.

Thanks for sharing!
Regards

That won't work for everyone either. Namely, it won't work for the author. He uses kubuntu, which disables the root account by default and relies on sudo for root access.

If it's for KDE users only, though, it would be better to use ksu (kubuntu configures this to use sudo and most other people configure it to use su).

Yes, you're right, I didn't know that about ubuntu :S
And definitively this is not for kde, It is for firefox. I use it and never installed kde or qt.
Well, if someone don't know what to do with this I assume s/he'll post here ;)

This is great, I'm glad to see someone else whom likes to have everything look "just right".
