Problem with Tag Browser Custom Icon for Languages - SOLVED

chaley on 12/20/2012:

All icons in the tag browser can now be customized. Put an icon file in resources/images with the name "tbci_" concatenated with the lookup key for the tag category. Examples: "tbci_authors.png", "tbci_#genre.png", "tbci_@some_user_category.png".

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have customized several icons and this procedure works fine.

However, "tbci_languages.png" does not seem to work. The icon did not change after I added "tbci_languages.png". Also, no image appeared if I deleted "languages.png" and had only "tbci_languages.png".

I had to delete the original "languages.png" image and add a new custom image with the name "languages.png".

This is a temporary fix that reverts to the original icon when I update the calibre version.

Marty

SOLVED: Put the desired icon in the calibre configuration directory.

On my PC:
C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\calibre\Resources\I mages\languages.png

PS: Sorry for starting a new thread on this topic ... I can't find the old thread.

I'm glad you got it to work for you and thanks for sharing your discovery. However, this hasn't been a problem for a long time. The directions on where to put replacement icons have been in the manual

Quote:
You should not change the files in this resources folder, as your changes will get overwritten the next time you update calibre. Instead, go to Preferences->Advanced->Miscellaneous and click Open calibre configuration directory. In this configuration directory, create a sub-folder called resources and place the files you want to override in it. Place the files in the appropriate sub folders, for example place images in resources/images, etc. calibre will automatically use your custom file in preference to the built-in one the next time it is started.
since the feature was added.

Release: 0.7.10 [23 Jul, 2010]

New Features
Some folks even created some icon sets for calibre.
