31About theming & lxpanel:
32
331. In future, hardcoding should not be used for icon lookup. Instead, use Gtk's built-in functions to handle icon lookup. If necessary, provide a fallback (hardcoded) icon.
34
352. Current icon names that can be themed specifically for lxpanel include:
36 *"lxpanel-background"
37 *"clock"
38 *"capslock-on"
39 *"capslock-off"
40 *"numlock-on"
41 *"numlock-off"
42 *"scrllock-on"
43 *"scrllock-off"
44 *"wincmd"
45 *"ns-lock"
46 *possibly more, as yet unfound.
