There is a particular icon library that I really like from DeviantArt.
Now, I have downloaded the package that has the
png files inside (I know the
ico files are there, but I want the
However, about my Windows 7 computer tells me that about 1/3 of the
png files are corrupt. I usually use XnView to view the files, and it won't display the "corrupt" files. I've tried other editors and viewers and I get the same issue.
Now, the png package was originally designed for Linux to be an OS-icon-package for the entire system, so I figure the
png files were built in Linux.
So, is there a way I can "fix" the "corrupted"
png files for my Windows 7 computer? Maybe when the files were created there was some bit that was off-colour or something?
I have read in this thread that the "corruption" could happen during the extraction process. I did all the extraction with 7-zip. It was a
zip containing a
tar. I will try another extractor, but I don't think it will make any difference.
I think the answer might revolve around editing one of the beginning or ending bits in the binary file, but I'm not sure.
Okay, I fixed the link to the icon package... (the other one was fine) - but this new link is actually for the original package from DeviantArt.
I am going about it this way: I extract the contents of the
.zip folder and then extract the contents of the
.tar folder until nothing is compressed.
By way of an example, if you download that set, there is a file called
add.png in the
32x32\actions folder. Another one is the
32x32\actions\bottom.png. There are a lot in all the folders. An example of a good one would be the
32x32\actions\appointment.png which is perfectly readable.
