Description Mike McQuaid 2006-10-11 08:02:35 UTC
The .bmp provided with the game maps #FF00FF to alpha, but this is not used in menus. A simple convert gives you a .xpm file which works properly.

I'm attaching the desktop file and the xpm.

Comment 4 Anton Romanov 2006-10-11 12:15:58 UTC
this wasn't done before cause we can't just convert icon and redistribute it

Comment 6 Mike McQuaid 2006-10-11 12:25:55 UTC
If I created a SVG icon instead and rendered it to a PNG/XPM, would that be acceptable?
Comment 7 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-10-12 09:55:48 UTC
No.  It is not acceptable to redistribute property which is under a license that forbids it.  You cannot modify anything from Id Software and redistribute it, except for the items they've released under the GPL.
Comment 8 Anton Romanov 2006-10-13 00:20:16 UTC
i think he just offered not "converting/modifying" but "creating from scratch" new nice svg icon for q4
Comment 9 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-10-13 06:47:47 UTC
I don't see the point.  Updatream provides an icon.  Best to take it up with them.
Comment 10 Paul Bredbury 2006-12-03 09:37:06 UTC
How about using the Quake *2* icon for Quake 4, from /usr/portage/games-fps/quake2-icculus/files/quake2.xpm? It looks almost identical, and presumably is GPL-2 to exist there.

Having a pink icon (as shown in Gnome 2.16) for a game that doesn't involve fluffy little ponies is just plain wrong ;)

Feel free to take it up with Id.
