When you download the application, the images are already in there, but they’re not sized properly and won’t work well with some GUIs.
For me, I would get a green box like so.
- First off, you will need a program called imagemagick. In an Ubuntu-based Linux, open up your terminal and type in the following command to install imagemagick:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install imagemagick
- Once that is done, keep your terminal open and type in the following command. The proper directory that contains the images:
$ cd /opt/pia/frontend/img
- You can use this command to make sure you’re in the right spot:
- You need to make a new folder of that directory with the following command (to save the original images this just to be on the safe side if you want to restore the images):
$ sudo mkdir img_bak
- This command will create a backup of all your images and will put it into the folder we just created (img_bak):
$ sudo cp *png img_bak
- With the next command, you are going to edit the images (resizing them to properly display in the tray):
$ sudo mogrify -resize 24×24 tray_disconnected.png
$ sudo mogrify -resize 24×24 tray_connecting.png
$ sudo mogrify -resize 24×24 tray_connected.png
- Now it should display correctly. Here is an image of my terminal (so you can see step-by-step instructions):
In order to display their logo, you need to follow the same steps for KDE neon and Kubuntu. The current Private Internet Access application I did this on was pia-v81.
