Terminal icon missing

I use xterm as my default terminal. The icons used in the window decorator, workspace switcher and systray (called "window buttons" in xfce) for this application is just a white cube with a blue line at the top. Is there a way to change this? When I run xfce4-terminal I get the typical terminal icon that I want.

Re: Terminal icon missing

I think it's because xterm don't set its own icon so the default Gtk application icon is use. Now how to change the default Gtk icon ... I don't know :-(
It must be one of the installed icon from your theme or gtk packages ...

Xfce is NOT Xubuntu. Bugs in Xubuntu don't mean that Xfce is buggy ...

Re: Terminal icon missing

Xterm can read xbm files. Find/create an xbm file of the icon that you want to use, then create/edit your ~/.Xresources file and add the following content:

xterm*iconPixmap: /path/to/icon_file.xbm

Then run:

xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

Works for "Window Buttons" - not sure about the others.
