Re: HOWTO: Change icon for specific file types in Gnome
You make it sound so easy, and it was under breezy, but it hasn't under edgy.
I'm trying to associate an icon, gnome-mime-video-ty.png, with tystreams. I've edited /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml to include:
<comment>Tivo transport stream</comment>
Executed: sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime
Sure enough, nautilus describes Doctor Who-Rose.ty as:
Type: Tivo transport stream
MIME type: video/ty
I put my icon in ~/.icons/Nuovo/24x24/mimetypes as gnome-mime-video-ty.png, and in gnome-theme-manager->Theme Details->Icons I selected Dropline Nuovo, noticing when I did that the folder icons in nautilus changed to the distinctive yellow icons. (Note: Dropline Nuovo "Inherits=gnome".)
The icon associated with *.ty files is, however, the gnome one that looks like /usr/share/icons/gnome/32x32/mimetypes/video-x-generic.png, to which gnome-mime-video.png is symlinked. It is the same icon associated with Doctor Who-Rose.ty.vob, described in nautilus as:
Type: MPEG video
MIME type: video/mpeg
What do I have to name my icon to get nautilus to use it for tystreams?
