    My Mario Theme

    I spent some time last night putting this together.

    My Mario Theme

    How to theme your Palm Pre

    Upload your themed icons to your favorite storage or photo site.

    In terminal navigate to the first application that is on your bar. Mine is the browser so we'll start off with that.

    Code:
     cd /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.browser/
    Then type:

    Code:
    sudo mv icon.png  icon.png.backup
    <--if you plan on theming your Pre a lot I would recommend that after the first backup you ignore this step and from then on use this command-->
    Code:
    sudo rm icon.png
    This way, your original Palm Pre icons will remain as backup and each time you theme you aren't wasting space by keeping old themed icons.

    Next:

    Code:
    sudo wget (url of where your browser icon is located)

    Code:
    sudo mv url.png icon.png
    Now let's say your next icon on your quick launch bar is the camera.

    Type:

    Code:
    sudo cd /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.camera/
    Code:
    sudo mv icon.png  icon.png.backup
    Code:
    sudo wget (url of where your browser icon is located)
    Code:
    sudo mv url.png icon.png
    Continue on with the next app by changing directory (cd), making backups (mv), and downloading your icon (wget). The only deviation from the above would be with the calendar. The icons (all 31 of them) can be found here: "/usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.calendar/images/launcher".

    Launcher icons can be found here: "/usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher".

    All icons have to be named icon.png, unless you are changing the calendar icons. They have to be in named as such icon-1.png, icon-2.png.

    If you've downloaded an icon that has a different filename type this:

    Code:
    sudo mv faultyfilenamehere.png icon.png
    Also, just a quick rundown on what some of these commands mean.

    cd =change directory
    mv = rename
    rm = remove
    wget = download

    Also wanted to add that if you come back with this error "Read-only file system" type this

    Code:
    sudo mount -o remount,rw /

    Thanks, I really want to find a wallpaper with Mario in it, and position him either jumping on one of my boxes or standing on it.

    Use Mario as a launcher as if he's about to leave the scene or another way of making him jump. :-)

    Not to take away from Sarah, because it obviously took some work to put it all together. But this is a background and icons are fairly easy to replace.

    Well, first thing you would want to do is download it to your computer. Then crop it so it fits the Palm screen. Finally, connect the Pre via USB mode and copy the new wallpapers to your Wallpaper directory. =)

    I love this idea! I need to find where the launcher icon is though.

    @HHGARVEY2003 & @truth13 I cut the box out of the image and changed the colors. Then I uploaded the icons to their respective folders (like msg in the com.palm.apps.messaging folder).

    @sushi Glad you found it.

    @LupeValenz Thanks!

    @sgtkwol You are not taking anything away from me, it was pretty easy once you know how to do it.

    Great Work! Is there a step by step tutorial on how to change app images on the home screen,

    Does this require rooting the Pre?

    Yes, you will need to have access to the file system. Once you have that everything is super simple.

    In order to do this, you need to have the icons that you want. Go to the directory of the program. It's almost always going to be here:/usr/palm/applications/app here. The icons are always located in the first directory of the app. For example: /usr/palm/applications/app here. I've only come across one exception and that is to the calendar. All the icons for the calendar are /usr/palm/applications/calendar/images/launcher.


    Best bet is to upload your images to your favorite photo sharing site. Then in terminal type:

    Code:
    cd /usr/palm/applications/app here
    Then:

    Code:
    sudo mv icon.png icon.png.backup
    Lastly:

    Code:
    sudo wget (url of where your image is located)
    On a side-note, your images will have to be named icon.png, so make sure that when you "wget" them that the file name is icon.png.

    You can type "ls" to see all the files.

    is there a standard size limit the icons have to be...like 32x32, or 64x64?
