View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] location of default desktop icons ?

October 28th, 2008, 03:55 PM
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?

/usr/share/pixmaps has many icons but is the icon you were using a svg or png?

/usr/share/icons too.

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.
