    Question How to change google-chrome icon?

    Hey I wanted to use chromium version 24 and by chance I have found this ppa https://launchpad.net/~a-v-shkop/+archive/chromium-dev

    I have installed it and was trying to change the icon of google-chrome. I found that it is installed in /opt/google/chrome directory and there are some png files that vary in size, replacing that with new png icon I wanted to use didn't work. It had no icon instead of having the new icon.

    There isn't a binary file that has the chrome icon either, google-chrome is a bash script and the binary it executes doesn't have an icon that I can change by doing properties. And as I looked at askubuntu.com /usr/share/applications don't have google-chrome in it, so I cannot change the icon from there either...

    Does anybody know how it can be changed?

    Open a terminal and look in /usr/share/applications for a file called google-chrome.desktop. Then use sudo nano to edit that file: search for the line that has "Icon=google-chrome". Replace "google-chrome" with the full path to the icon you want.

    Re: How to change google-chrome icon?

    I'm taking you want to change the icon for google-chrome, not chromium from that ppa?

    If so, -
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop
    Edit the Icon=google-chrome line to whatever you want. I'd full path it unless the icon desired is in a commonly used dir. (like /usr/share/pixmaps or /usr/share/app-install/icons, ect. in which case you could just use the icon name

    ex. in screen, used a .png in my Pictures folder, now google-chrome is a green-apple

    Re: How to change google-chrome icon?

    Weirdly this package i installed from ppa i mentioned doesn't install google-chrome.desktop to usual /usr/share/applications/ folder (unlike chromium, I can see the desktop file for chromium there)... this ppa installs google-chrome to /opt/google/chrome folder. Inside I have google-chrome.desktop file which has the following with my edits:

    btw the main reason i use this ppa is because it has v24 of chrome. If there's a better way of installing later versions of chrome I'm open to suggestions I saw that apt-get install chromium is v23

    replacing that with new png icon I wanted to use didn't work. It had no icon instead of having the new icon.
    This has happen to me in the past when I replaced an icon with one that was a larger size.
