     I am taking a look into that, cause there should already be a common
     method to do so in Debian. But isn't there a way that benifits other
     distro in generell and am i right that you just use it to speed up the
     UI menu?

As a recall, this file was necessary to actually associate the icons with their
respective stock items - they didn't actually appear otherwise.  However, it's
a long time since I wrote that stuff so I could be mistaken.

     /usr/share/pspp/icons/hicolor/16x16/actions (or status, ...)
     Like above: they're just used inside the UI, right?
OK.  I'll look into a possible new location.
