(a) Use the web interface to the LON-CAPA code repository available at: source.loncapa.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi to display a listing of available files.

Image files accessed in /res/adm/pages/ on a LON-CAPA server can be found in:

Other icons used in LON-CAPA can be found in:

and image files used on the help pages can be found in:

Note: The mapping from a source directory in CVS ("sourcedir") to the corresponding directory on a LON-CAPA server ("targetdir") is described in the LPML file:


(b) Browse directories of icons used in LON-CAPA, by downloading the current production release from: install.lon-capa.org/versions/loncapa-current.tar.gz 

then extracting the compressed tar file with the command: tar zxf loncapa-current.tar.gz

and browsing the sub-directories: loncom/html/res/adm/pages/, loncom/html/adm/lonIcons/, and loncom/html/adm/help/png/.

Subject: [LON-CAPA-users] Tango Icons

LC uses a subset of the Tango icons for things like the navigation arrows, listing of a directory, the blue "help" icon, etc.  Looking at a LC web page source code, I see they are in a directory


and include, for example, /res/adm/pages/del.png, /res/adm/pages/pub.png, et. al, and the help icon is /adm/help/help.png

For some questions I'm developing, there is extensive javascript code involved, and I've created some of my own icons.  But for a consistent look and feel, I think using Tango icons whenever possible would be a good idea.

The directories containing the icons is not browse-able when on chooses to "Browse Published Resources."  I also tried to check the source code for LC, but no luck.

Is there a way to see what icons are available in LC?
