Hello again,

Thanks for replys. I should have pointed out that I'm on Linux, with KDE.

Same happens to me. I started exploring the Label idea based on Fredrik's Lundh suggestion in 

It may be that I misunderstood his method.

The above-mentioned piece of documentation states that iconbitmap works with
monochrome icons; I'd like to go Kodak

For the 2nd point, I thought that things like colormapwindows may be useful. But I don't
know what args to pass, and how to experiment with it, so it led me to the third point.

I read the suggested material, but it's too brief for my level of knowledge. Is there something
more detailed available, to explain what goes in colormapwindows, or in command?

Thanks again,
