WineIcons is a Win32 program for Wine, that allows you to extract icons form ICO, EXE and DLL files and save them in PNG format.
It is useful for KDE-like icons creation. WineIcons can be easily integrated into your Linux system.
The project is developed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
This means you can use and/or modify it freely.
It uses TPNGImage
(1.5) - a free Delphi component providing PNG images support.
03) CURRENT VERSION
The latest version is 1.0.6.
WineIcons requires Wine to run, for it is a Win32 program.
Go to Wine official website
to learn more about this fantastic project.
WineIcons does not work on Cedega (4.4.3).
You can download WineIcons installation pack as well as the sources form the project download site
Binary version was compiled with legal Borland Delphi 5 Standard ... running on Wine :)
You can just unpack the files from the archive and run wineicons.exe with Wine.
If you would like to integrate WineIcons with your system, you have to run install.sh as root.
It will allow you to run the program by simply typing "wineicons" in the console from any path.
This will also add the program icon into KDE (if you have it installed).
To remove all installed files use uninstall.sh.
After running WineIcons you will see its main (and in fact the only) window.
It allows you to open any ICO, EXE or DLL file. If it contains icons, all of them will be displayed.
Then you can save one or more icons form the list to PNG format. Of course it will preserve icons' transparency.
In current version WineIcons creates only icons of 32x32 size.
