Thanks for the artwork! My new MX Launcher button looks so much more elegant than the clunky old KDE button! The transparent look goes very nicely with the other icons on my panel:

I should get back into stuff like this.

My attachment quota has been reached it appears or I'd post another example, the Mepis start with the MXlogo

Try inkscape and you will get sharp and scalable icons. If you zoom in on an icon made with Gimp, you will find jagged edges and pixelation everywhere.
