  2. [SOLVED] Re: How can I change the icons used to display filetypes in a file manager

    Solved. @CatKiller, you get the bonus points, though I wish we'd started with that original suggestion: change the theme in that Preferences > Customize Look and Feel. That's what I needed. Chose...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: How can I change the icons used to display filetypes in a file manager

    Okay, I believe that I've gotten somewhere:

  8. [SOLVED] Re: How can I change the icons used to display filetypes in a file manager

  9. [SOLVED] Re: How can I change the icons used to display filetypes in a file manager

  10. [SOLVED] Re: How can I change the icons used to display filetypes in a file manager

    Thank you, @CatKiller, that's helpful. So the theme I'm using, (Arc, in this case) doesn't have icons for a disk? That seems odd but is there a way to find that specifically? It's not hard to make...

    Thanks, @1fallen. I am seeing "....dvd -> sr0" when I look at what's already in /dev, so I don't think that's the issue. Also, if it needed that symlink, wouldn't it fail consistently?
