Some of the files/images have incorrect permissions:

$ chmod 0644 ./StartCrystal/*

Also, the Linux Mint icon has not been converted from the GIMP source (.xcf).

Great icons. Thank you.

Nice work. You should make one for Mint if you feel up to it or perhaps add a blank version to the download so people can add their own text.

These are probably one of the best 'start' buttons i have seen so far.

I use the default Human theme and it isn't in '.icons' folder. I replaced start-here.png in /usr/share/icons/Human/22x22/places/ but it didn't work: only a black square instead of any icon.(((

Sorry, the address was '/usr/share/icons/Human/24x24/places/start-here.png', certainly, but it doesn't matter... ;')

Thanks, but you don't have to be root to modify your folder.

Please, anybody knows a "how to" for install this Start-icon in Ubuntu Hardy?

100% works: remove all elements from panel;
Then add "GNOME Menu" applet.
Run command "gconf-editor".
Navigate to /apps/panel/objects/object_0.
Then, in right panel, change "custom_icon" value to path to your icon.
Check "use_custom_icon" property on.

I have 8.04 and this gconf'ing works for me.

The same result as trying the next 'How To': a black square (empty icon) instead of anything else.

there's a second installation method.

Open GConf-Editor -> apps -> panel -> objects -> then search for an object_* with object_type "menu-object" -> insert the path to the image into custom_icon -> hit the use_custom_icon checkbox.

First off you have to have a "main menu" utility on your panel. Just right click and click add to panel. Make sure its a "main menu" and not a "menu bar"...

very nice.
but how about adding just a "linux" button with a tux icon? there are 200+ distros, this will catch all of them :)

Yes, it's a good idea. :)
