Modify the Applications button on Slingshot

THIS WILL NOT WORK ON LOKI!!!! WORKS ON FREYA ONLY

How it looks: 
  1. Download a 24x24 px icon that you want to replace Applications with: Some icons you may like:
  2. Open file manager up as administrator and go to: /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0
  3. Place the icon you want to use in that folder. DO NOT CLOSE THE WINDOW YET
  4. rename it to "icon.svg"
  5. Make sure the icon has proper permissions by right clicking on it, choosing properties > more > and making it 644-777 (read, write, and executable by owner, group, everyone) or else wingpanel may not load.
  6. Open up apps.css (SHOULD BE IN THE SAME FOLDER)
  7. in Scratch, scroll down to the panel settings, find .panel-app-button > GtkWidget > GtkWidget:first-child
  8. and change what's in the {brackets} to what's below.
    { padding: 0px 24px 0px 0px; font-size: 0px; background-image: url("icon.svg"); background-repeat: no-repeat; }
  9. In terminal type: killall wingpanel to see the changes.
