I understand what autodownloader is but in dock like applications,
example Avant window navigator in GNOME or Bagheera in KDE, big icons
are used to indicate currently running applications instead of the task
Autodownloader when it's invoked can take a long time to download game
content esp over low bandwidth connections and it's useful to
differentiate it from other running applications. IIRC it was also a
recommended guideline for any dialog boxes to have unique icons
associated with them. Something to consider.
Ah, now I understand. I'm afraid I don't know how to add a window icon from
python + glade. But if someone is willing to file a request with the art team
for an iocn and see the requets through till we have actually an icon, then
I'll do my best to integrate the icon into autodownloader.
