Hello Michael,

I've looked there, I can't really see one that really does it. Maybe the
default icon is good enough.

Thanks, that makes sense. I saw the other commits by people that fixed
what I had broken, I'm very sorry for any trouble I've caused.

I'll try and look out for some, but it would be a little difficult as
I'm new to this code.

I forgot about DISPLAY. Thanks. I'll have to look into it.
I guess I'm going to have to try building with different option and in
different environments.

I thought about this, but I thought I'd see what gets said about it.
Zenity spits out lots of stuff on stderr, which I guess could just be
piped to /dev/null instead.

I'm not really sure. I've not really looked at any of this code before
so I'm just trying to learn about it at the moment, though I haven't
looked at anything past the build system yet.

Thank you for being so welcoming.
