TOPIC: larger/scalable tray icon

larger/scalable tray icon 1 Year, 9 Months ago  
Hi, the tray icon showing today's date is way tiny on my new higher resolution monitor.
I tried enlarging it, but that gets me a larger, very blurry icon.
It would need to be drawn for that size between 24p and 32p in order to look sharp. There is only this one in a fixed size though.
I find lots of calendar icons on the net which are squares showing one date.
This one of course needs to be a long vertical bar of 31 dates, width about 24p or a bit more. Or scalable.
Would anyone have one of these?
I checked the themes I have downloaded, they all have one fixed-size icon. I don't know how to make them myself, that would be quite the steep learning curve...

Welcome to the forum, bennypr0fane.
Try this addon I made. It has a bigger size (48x48). Double click to add it to the Shadow4 skin. Then, in the active skins select the trayicon window, then Options... and in Appearence change to "bitmap.trayicon.big". It should work.

Thank you!
It's not working for me though for some reason.
I don't get to choose "bitmap.trayicon.big" in the trayicon Options, there's just the "Standard" choice. However, the addon is definitely installed.
Do I have to use the Shadow4 skin to make it work? See attached a screenshot how it's looking for me. It seems to be still the default theme's icon. It's not like here on the forum, the blue bar is missing and is has poor contrast.
I forgot to mention I am on Debian GNU/Linux with a Xfce desktop (but the OS shouldn't mkae difference here, right?).

Are you using the Shadow4 skin? If not, then you need to select the Shadow4 tray icon only. You don't need to use all the skin windows.

- open the options dialog
- skins
- advanced >>>
- click on the plus icon from Shadow4 skin in Available Skins
- click on the tray icon item
- click on the left-to-right black arrow
- Select "Shadow4 - Tray icon" in Active Skins
- Now you have to see several option, including bitmap.trayicon.big

The OS shouldn't matter.

I copy a wrong line from another addon. Maybe the "include" line could break the addon.
Try this version. Or manually change the xml file from the r2skin-addon zip.

It won't let me install this new version, saying that the addon is already installed. I tried removing the Shadow4 skin but with the same result. I can't see an option to manage addons independently from the skins.
However, I was able to replace my current trayicon with your larger one and choose it in my current theme's settings, so it's showing now and it looks great! Thanks a lot!
