There's a kind of user blind spot, due to ecasound being a command-line app. 
People only tend to think of trying it if they know it or specifically prefer 
command-line tools. This is why I have pushed for ecasound -c to have a menu 
entry (under Debian at least) and I'm now trying to think up a suitable icon 
or two to go with it. Experienced users tend to know where their tools are 
and don't mind, possibly even like the fact that it comes in a plain brown 
wrapper. The software and documentation are wonderful, but it doesn't leap 
off the shelf at you.

Several Linux Audio packages lack icons, so I'm happy to coordinate efforts to 
create / find them. Unfortunately I'm not much of an artist, so I thought I 
might mention this here in case there are any GIMP/Blender experts lurking on 
the list who would be interested in contributing. I'm currently open to 
requests from other developers who know that they don't have any suitable 
images in their source code. I'm also happy to receive pointers to other 
icons that I'm likely to have missed or suitably convertible images.

I am prepared to coordinate farming the icons out for distribution - any 
suggestions on how to make them all available to all Linux Audio Users, as 
well as DeMuDi (excepting the few DeMuDi-specific icons I have done) will be 
gratefully received. While I'm at it, thanks to all the Authors, Developers 
and Maintainers who have responded so positively so far. I understand how 
much this may seem like a side-issue.
