Why you don't use resources ?
add images to your project. for each image click "Properties", select
"EmbeddedResource" for build action and choose resource id.
and finally to load your image :

> I have monodevelop installed on a Raspberry PI Linux system... I have

> Button'... then, under 'Stock Item' I do the drop-down menu and pick
> 'More'... I go to 'Project Icons' click 'Add'... QUESTION NUMBER 1: If I

> icon that, when you click on the button, it shows the second image?
> QUESTION NUMBER 2: When I put the PNG images in my Solution's root
> directory and pick them as the Select Image... an icon shows that has the
> proper graphics for the PNG; but when that same icon doesn't show on the
> button, itself. On the button it says the Icon name I gave to it; but has
> no graphics on the button at all. Does the imported PNG have to be a
> particular size or dpi? Currently my pngs are all created in Photoshop 133
> pixels wide x 113 pixels tall at 72 Pixels/Inch Do they have to be square,
> and some other pixel size, or a dpi other than 72 dpi in order to actually
> be placed on the button? Also... whenever I create a Stock Image, then try
> and Compile the Solution... it always gives me an error that it can't find
> the .png file. If I copy all of the PNG files to the Debug folder (or
> Release folder if I have 'Release' selected)... then it doesn't give me
> that error. Do I really have to manually copy all of the images to the
> Debug folder, myself? The error I always get is: Failed to open file
> '/home/pi/gtkwindowexample/gtkwindowexample/bin/Debug/./key0.png': No such
> file or directory My guess would be... that /./ is the problem. I don't
> know what the source is that /./ is defined as... but I'd guess it is
> backing-up a certain number of folders to two directories before the Debug
> folder. That is where the .png files are to be found. So, if /./ is
> anything other than "/../../" then that is probably where the error is
> coming from and why the png files aren't being copied to the Debug folder
> properly. Anybody know anything about why this is occurring?
