well, when i save a bookmark to my netbook remix launcher it just looks plain...ill put up a screenshot...

but i tried downlaoding a pic of the gmail icon ..then dragging it to where the book mark says icon..but it wouldnt accept it..i assume it needs to be in a certain format, but if anyone has any way that i can have actuall pictures for my book marks that would be great.

they dont have to be anything special just like the ubuntu logo for the ubuntu forums, and maybe a G for google, just to make it a little less boring. and a little easier to quickly click my link.

thanks for your time and help !

(in the screen shot i would like all my bookmarks to look like firefox does)
(i cant stand that gray square)

SOLVED: richy@richy-netbook:/$ mkdir -p ~/.config/netbook-remix--launcher/icons

just needs a directory to be made i suppose ...

do you know how to make custom icons? the default favicons display too large and look crappy - but i try to click browse and select my own icon when adding a favorite, but it doesn't seem to recognize images?

I already had a netbook-launcher/icons folder, was that the right one? how did you name the icons in the folder?
