Customization process consists of a few simple steps:

1. Place Xeoma that you'd like to customize into the distrib folder, subfolder with name corresponding to the operating system.

2. If you'd like to change the icon of the program, place the new icons into the icon folder - .ico for Windows, .png for Linux и Android, .icns for Mac OS X.

If you don't need that, you can leave the original Xeoma icons or leave this folder empty.
