It started with a post on
Emacs Stories Telegram group.
Someone posted a pretty picture with Emacs-logo-on-a-butterfly and a comment
But the actual command
M-x butterfly is boring (to me at least)
I wanted the nice image.
Some nice soul on the group directed me to this page
First I changed the icon of my
doom emacs to this image.
I followed these instructions.
No immediate success.
Because, I have Emacs installed from
brew, so one in
/Applications folder is a symlink to the actual file in
So initially the instructions did not work, until I opened the real file.
and then it worked!
Now I wanted more.
I have had centaur logo on my Doom dashboard for some time now.
I changed that to that of this butterfly via the following line in
config.el of my Doom emacs
(setq fancy-splash-image (concat doom-user-dir "misc/Mx-butterfly.png"))
The original image is HUGE.
So first attempt did not work, until I resized the image to 230x230 (with resolution of 144)
Butterfly on the Dashboard, butterfly as the icon!
Here is an obligatory XKCD comic
