Hi,
I installed Real Player 11, tried it, didn't like it, purged it, but the media files icons set by RP11 continue to be those ugly Real Player icons. How do I fix this, and use my icon theme's icons for media files?

I already tried switching icon themes hoping this would fix it, but it didn't. No matter which icon theme I use, icons for media files are always Real icons.

Thank you.

re-install themes, or reinstall your default player, might work.

And one user reports it not working in Thunar (which I'm guessing you're using), which was true for me as well when I simply ran the script. Though when I ran the script as root (sudo ./fixicons.sh), it worked flawlessly.

This isn't it.

Not in this case. I have googled for this, but didn't find the answer.

Not in my case it didn't.

Anyway, I solved it. Removing ~/.local/share/icons/ra_hicolor/ did the trick.
