Launcher icons

(1/1)

robert:
I've worked out how to setup a launcher on the desktop and how to assign an icon to it.
Question I'd like to ask is where are the icon folders and can I add some of my own and in what format if I can.
Thanks

N4RPS:
Hello!

I know that icon files are in .png format in the /usr/share/icons and the hidden .icons folder inside the /home/<username> folder. Different themes have different icons and icon sizes, and are broken down into several categories within the theme's folders.

The following was stolen from:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/6009/where-are-icons-stored

/usr/share/icons/ typically contains pre-installed themes (shared by all users) ~/.icons/ typically contains folders with the themes installed by the user.

Also, many applications have their icons in /usr/share/pixmaps/ or in the folder with the same name as the application under /usr/share/...

As always, anyone else is free to add to any of this - or to correct me, if I'm wrong...
