hello every one
i was trying to follow a guid about how to change the icon for a specified file type (in my case .c,.h,.asm,cpp) ,
and that by adding the icon png to the /usr/share/icons/gnome/48x48/mimetypes/text-x-csrc.png
after following the procedure the icons for all .c files have changed but not in the file manager icon view
only in List view as you can see from the screenshot
so how can i set those icons ???
Icon Naming Specification
i’m sorry but i can’t find what im looking for ???
Nevermind, I misinterpreted… Anyway, you might need to update the icon cache… that is done by running gtk-update-icon-cache.
gtk-update-icon-cache [OPTION...] ICONPATH
-h, --help Show help options
-f, --force Overwrite an existing cache, even if up to date
-t, --ignore-theme-index Don't check for the existence of index.theme
-i, --index-only Don't include image data in the cache
-c, --source=NAME Output a C header file
-q, --quiet Turn off verbose output
-v, --validate Validate existing icon cache
well i’m just impressed the icon is changed in the properties window but not in the icon view
