Your instructions don't really tell me how to find the icon that is being used. The one being grabbed doesn't seem to match any of the ones in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/[size]/apps/tomboy.png. The white background gives it away and so does the fact that there is no red eraser on the pencil used in the icon that is giving me problems. I tried renaming the icons to be sure and it is still pulling up an icon even though I rename the tomboy icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/[size]/apps/.
I have gnome-sharp2 version 2.20.1-11.1 and gnome-desktop-sharp2 was not installed. I installed version 20.20.1-28.1 and now it is worse because the white background is even bigger.
I originally updated Tomboy via the 1-click install at openSUSE build service but just reinstalled from Gnome:Community via Yast. I still have the same issue.
Is that what you need to know?
I already responded with instructions for finding the icon used. As you
can see, the background of it is already transparent. I'm not sure why
you are experiencing the error you are experiencing, but it would help
if you would respond to my earlier question about which versions of
gnome-sharp2 and gnome-desktop-sharp2 you have installed, and what
repository you got Tomboy 0.12.0 from.
As for editing the icon, you're on your own, I am no artist. ;-)
And please, use reply-all so we can keep this on the mailing list.
