Cuttlefish Unity app indicator icon fix for Ubuntu 12.04

My last post was about Cuttlefish. What I did not mention, is a little annoyance with the indicator icon under Ubuntu 12.04 using Unity. It does not really fit into the monchrome indicator app menu.

The application is installed to /opt/ and even comes with a monochrome indicator app icon. However it is no used by default, so I was constantly distracted by the alien purple icon in the indicator bar. Here is an easy fix to the problem:

cd /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/cuttlefish/share/cuttlefish/media
sudo cp tentacle_indicator.png tentacle_indicator.png.old
sudo cp cuttlefish_indicator.png tentacle_indicator.png

The middle command backs up the original indicator file before overwriting it in the next step with the monochrome icon. Of course you can replace the icon with whatever icon you wish. However, being a cuttlefish user I’m obviously very lazy, so that’s enough of a fix for me for this cosmetic problem.
