    location of default desktop icons ?

    I used gconf-editor to display icons for Computer, Home, Trash, etc on my desktop.

    Then I changed the icon for Computer from the default to something else.
    I want to get the default back. Where is that icon file located?

    Thanks.

    /usr/share/pixmaps has many icons but is the icon you were using a svg or png?
    Good site to search for guides & how-tos.

    you should be able to revert the icon back to its default without specifically selecting what it was before. im not on ubuntu right now so i cant tell you specifics but there should be some option when you go to change the icon

    Right click then properties. Click the icon then choose revert.

    Ah, I wasn't doing the steps right.

    Now, I also know where to find icons I might in the future.
