Dear Mike,

Thanks for your reply. Sorry that I didn't read about the reqirement for icons 
before submitting them. I am attaching the 48x48 pixel icons as desired. Hope 
these are sufficient,

Thank you very much, I will have a look!

First of all, the your two images ml-pnC.png and en-pnEqf.png look very
nice but they are huge and not suitable for the places the icons of the
m17n-db input methods are usually shown.

For example the icon hi-itrans.mim
for the hi-itrans.mim input method and other looks like this in the
input switcher overlay window (Screenshot-input-method-switcher.png, usually 
this pops up like this when
Super+space is typed except on Gnome where it looks different), the
ibus-setup tool (Screenshot-ibus-setup.png), the ibus-typing-booster
setup tool (Screenshot-ibus-typing-booster-setup.png), the ibus floating
panel (Screenshot-floating-panel.png), the panel of the
window-manger/desktop (Screenshot-panel.png, here from the i3 window
manager as an example).

In all these places, only a square icon really fits well.

The existing icons in
https://git.savannah.nongnu.org/cgit/m17n/m17n-db.git/tree/icons are all
48x48 pixel transparent png files.

Also in this online documentation, the icons for all input methods are
square: ttps://www.nongnu.org/m17n/manual-en/m17nDBData.html

Can you make 48x48 transparent png icons like this for your input methods?
