View Full Version : [ubuntu] Disk icon mixup

March 26th, 2011, 06:33 PM
Hi! I have a non-serious problem, but i would like help in solving. My second NTFS partion has a wiered text icon instead of the normal hard drive one. My windows C: partition has the right logo but not the second disk. Here is a picture I attached of what is going on. Thanks!

I guess it's because of an improper icon theme. Which one do you use?

What version of Ubuntu do you actually run?

And please post the content of your "/etc/fstab", in code-tags please (the #-button in the editor).

go ahead and Right click the drive icon

select properties

now click on the picture of the Icon

browse to ~usr/share/icons

look around till you find what you want

most themes will have a "devices" subfolder that is where you want to look, for such icons.

Does it still work after a relogin/reboot?
