I have already tried this addon several times, but it doesn't seem to work for me, by not activating any addon except Mask.

I also preferred a lua code to introduce in my addon, which is certainly, very rudimentary.

I'm not a lua developer
So I don't know how to correctly use the command to carry out the manipulation to realize my request

I just did a test just now but it made me a mistake lua in play, I guess
Code:
SetPortraitToTexture("ActionButton1", "Interface\Artifacts\Artifacts-PerkRing-Final-Mask");
is not a valid entry.


Code:
Message: Interface\AddOns\AddOns\Actionbar.lua:3: SetPortraitToTexture(): Couldn't find texture named 'ActionButton1'

Stack: Interface\AddOns\AddOns\Actionbar.lua:3: SetPortraitToTexture(): Couldn't find texture named 'ActionButton1'
[string "=[C]"]: in function `SetPortraitToTexture'
[string "@Interface\AddOns\AddOns\Actionbar.lua"]:3: in main chunk

Locals: (*temporary) = "ActionButton1"
(*temporary) = "InterfaceArtifactsArtifacts-PerkRing-Final-Mask"

And this entry on the other hand does not cause any result in the game, the button remained square.

Code:
SetPortraitToTexture("ActionButton1NormalTexture", "Interface\Artifacts\Artifacts-PerkRing-Final-Mask");
SetPortraitToTexture("ActionButton1", "Interface\Artifacts\Artifacts-PerkRing-Final-Mask");
