I don't fully understand how all the icon data is stored in the ic0n chunk in PNG icons. Specifically I'm not sure Icon Library hard codes the icon type attribute in ic0n chunk.

According to Icon Library code if type = 0 it will deduce the icon type based on several criteria.

To better see exactly what data is in the icon files I'm writing a small tool 'IconInfo' that will list at the command line everything about Classic Icons & PNG icons.

So then I will know if Wanderer is not being truthful.  ;)

So far I looked at the icOn chunk data for about ten PNG icons. The results are surprising!

None had Icon Type defined in the attributes. Drawer icons had some drawer data & stacksize = 4096 & frameless whatever that is. Project icons had stacksize, frameless, iconx, icony & defaultool defined. Strangely, disk.info only had drawer data, stacksize, frameless & two tooltypes. It looks like a drawer icon.

As shown in the first screenshot I had posted earlier, the difference from Disk Icon to project icon is really noticeable with Dopus4

On Wanderer "it all depends on its filename," see screenshot

- If a DualPNG icon is named "Disk.info" it will be a Disk Icon.
- If we rename the same Icon "Disk2.info" or other name, it will become a Project Icon

On AfA OS the Dual PNG Icons do not have this problem, a Disk Icon will remain a Disk Icon even if renamed.

On OS 3.9, on the other hand, if a DualPNG icon "Disk.info" is renamed "Disk2.info," it will become a Tools Icon

Thanks Deadwood. I copied both files from an old ABIv0 nightly and it solved the problem. I can confirm that regina.library is definitely needed as well.

Also for Disk Icons, AROS x86 with Dual-PNG Icons behaves strangely:

Any Project icon if copied to the root of the disk, automatically turns into a "Disk" Icon, vice versa if you copy the same icon to a folder it goes back to being a "Project" icon, see screenshot

All this does not happen with Native AROS icons :o

The strange behavior is probably due to the fact that PNG icons don't store the IconType in the icon data like a Classic Amiga Icon. Instead the icon attributes are stored in the ic0n chunk.

Do you get the same behavior on Wanderer & Dopus4 ?

A few users have asked me to create a "Set Icon System" with the "old" DualPNG "Envelope" style icons from AROS One v1.0.
As soon as I have some time I will complete and make these icons available as well.

For those who don't know, all AROS One Icons are my creations, any suggestions or proposals are welcome.




Very nice! You do good work.  :)

It's good to have options when it comes to icon sets.
