    This seems like a question that should have been answer countless times, but I can't seem to find a succinct answer anywhere.

    I'd like to use the stock launcher pro icons for home screen application shortcuts. Is there any way to access the default launcherpro icons?

    I've found countless custom Launcherpro icon packs around, but I am specifically interested in the default launcher pro icons. Is there any icon pack with them, or way to get them in my gallery?

    Thanks for your help!

    Right - I've had no problem finding custom launcher pro icons. That site is great, for sure. But it doesn't have the default icons that come bundled in the launcherpro apk (which is what I'm looking for).

    I'm confused, do you want copies of the stock icons or do you want to use them? If you want to use them then long press an icon and select change icon, then LauncherPro icons...
    Hope that's helpful

    I want to use the stock icons for application shortcuts on the home screen. I know it's straightforward to use the icons on dock applications, but the 'Use Launcherpro icons' is not available if I am choosing an icon for a homescreen application shortcut.

    My only choices for homescreen application shortcuts are those icons I have stored in my Gallery, so ideally, I would like a way to copy the default launcher pro icons into my gallery.

    Sorry if I'm not posing my question clearly, but thanks for your help!

    Ah, I get ya now. Yeah, I'm not sure on that one. Probably have to use a file manager (astro, file explorer etc..) and find them in the system files. I don't know where to start though. good luck.

    I downloaded launcherpro icons from the market. I think it was a paid app but it has tons of icons from launcher pro plus more that people created. I just found out a few days ago that if you go into settings, you can change the color of the icons as well if you are sick of the plain white.

    Just did a google search on the image file (buatxdadua.jpg) and found this thread. Maybe its where you got it.

    [SHARE] Gingerbread Framework x8 [Archive] - xda-developers

    After reading it some people say its just a photoshopped layout. and most of it isn't in english.

    Clock widget looks like SiMi Clock Widget
    Battery also and possibly the weather with the larger widget 4x1.

    Hi, old thread I know but i was trying to find the answer too!

    You just need to do a long press on the screen you want to place the short cut, press short cuts, and away you go, same as changing the dock icons. You can also edit / delete the text underneath the icon.

    Hope that helps!

    This may be a tiny bit of a digression, but I didn't want to start a new thread when there are so many about icons.

    I've been looking around at various launchers & icon packs, and am having trouble telling which are compatible. Every time I look at an icon pack of some kind, it seems to want me to use it with a certain launcher. And, of course, the launchers in question aren't the ones that I'm most interested in using. Typical! :p

    Is there some type of "generic" android icon format? Or can someone give me a quick idea of which icon pack formats work with which launchers? IE Would icons labeled as working for ADW or GO Launcher or &LauncherPro, etc. work with a different launcher? (I'm kinda leaning toward Launch-X, but I'm still exploring).

    From what I'm reading it sounds like you can just extract the icons from the icon pack & stick them in your gallery or your SD, but I'm not totally clear on if that is correct or how to go about it.

    Any help would be appreciated. I have finally gotten comfortable with the basics & a few apps, but now I must make phone pretty! :)

    EDIT (for clarification): I am not needing info on apps, per se. There are several that will let me change icons- Just trying to find out how to make icons/packs accessible to whatever app I am using, if the icons didn't come with it.

    Hi,
    in case someone's still interested, once you get launcherpro *.APK file, you can rename it to *.ZIP and extract its content. After that browse through the folders: \res\drawable-hdpi\ and there you can find grafix used by LauncherPro, including stock icons.
