Happily I found the source of at least one such
icon. It is the icon for creating a graphic
frame. Here is the URL:
This one is critical because at icon size
and resolution it is just a blur.
As I need others I will look up the name in the
Scribus source, change the suffix from png to
svg, and search away. Then using Inkscape I will
resize to the dimensions I want and save as a
pdf. Today I will experiment with resizing in
Scribus instead. But in any case I have a path
to the image I want at the size and dpi I want.
Thanks for your hint!
