    Question N900 icon design

    Hi,

    I need to design an application icon and I'm not sure of format/sizing on N900. Can anyone point me to documentation? Or know the specs for an icon for the application menu, application catalogue list etc.

    Thanks, Stu

    Thanks for that, so in the app catalogue icons are 48x48 png.

    I couldn't spot it the documentation but I believe the icon size for applications installed in the application menu are 64x64 png.

    Re: N900 icon design

    follow up question. using Qt SDK on windows how can you get an application icon to be displayed in the task launcher on the N900. I've managed to get an icon displayed in the applications list and to install optified.

    The maemo.org MADDE packaging and QT application packaging articles are useful though conflicting in parts but the suggestions don't seem to work.

    My desktop file is :

    [Desktop Entry]
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Version=0.2
    Type=Application
    Name=CameraDOF
    Exec=/opt/cameradof/bin/cameradof
    Icon=cameradof
    X-Maemo-Category=Main
    X-Window-Icon=cameradof
    X-Window-Icon-Dimmed=cameradof
    X-HildonDesk-ShowInToolbar=true
    X-Osso-Type=application/x-executable
    X-Osso-Service=cameradof
    XB-Maemo-Icon-26:
    iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUg
    ..... =

    My control file (part) is:

    Source: cameradof
    Section: user/utilities
    Priority: extra
    Maintainer: XXXXXXXXXXX <XXXXXXXXXXXXX>
    Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 5), libqt4-dev (>= 4.6.1)
    Standards-Version: 3.7.3

    Package: cameradof
    Architecture: any
    Depends: ${shlibsepends}, ${miscepends}
    Description: Camera depth of field calculator
    camera depth of field calculator
    allows setting up of shooting situation.
    XB-Maemo-Display-Name: CameraDOF
    XB-Maemo-Icon-26:
    iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSU
    ..... =

    As far as I can tell all the icons etc are installed as defined in my pro file...

    PRO file extract:

    unix {
    #VARIABLES
    PREFIX = /opt/cameradof
    BINDIR = $$PREFIX/bin
    DATADIR =$$PREFIX/data
    IMGDIR = /usr/share/icons/hicolor
    MAEMODIR = /usr/share/applications/hildon

    DEFINES += DATADIR=\\\"$$DATADIR\\\" PKGDATADIR=\\\"$$PKGDATADIR\\\"

    #MAKE INSTALL

    INSTALLS += target desktop service icon64 icon48

    target.path =$$BINDIR

    data.path = $$DATADIR

    desktop.path = $$MAEMODIR
    desktop.files += ../data/$${TARGET}.desktop

    service.path = $$DATADIR/dbus-1/services
    service.files += ../data/$${TARGET}.service

    icon64.path = $$IMGDIR/64x64/apps
    icon64.files += ../data/64x64/$${TARGET}.png

    icon48.path = $$IMGDIR/48x48/apps
    icon48.files += ../data/48x48/$${TARGET}.png

    }

    I use MADDE terminal build 2010-06-14 on Windows 7 to do the debian packaging.

    Your excellent support and helpo much appreciated as usual.

    BR David
