Customize Icons

The QuasselClient executable bundles all icons inside the executable itself to use as default icons. It does however first look at the ./icons/ directory first. If your installation is missing the icons folder, you can download copy it from here to your Quassel directory. Example: Unzip and copy the icons folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Quassel\.
