    Hardy-Folders Not Taking Theme Change

    I have been trying various themes, both general themes and icons. When I change icon themes the folders don't take the theme change. The folders instead have the basic gray look. What am I missing. I have changed folder themes in earlier versions, but just can't seem to get it to take now. When I use the theme manager and change the basic themes the folders change also, but I don't have the look I want.I can't seem to customize the folder icons in the theme manager, they just don't take the changes.

    Thanks,
    Gregg

    I checked around and it seems to be a problem with the latest version of gnome. I believe it has to do with link address issues with the icons and Gnome, but I am not sure about a fix.

    I don't believe there is a fix yet. I don't know if the fix is just going to be waiting till all themes/icon sets are updated or not. I is certainly a bummer not to be able to customize as I could once.

    Re: Hardy-Folders Not Taking Theme Change

    I found a fix. Sort of...

    I replaced the gnome folder.png file with the icon of my theme.

    It's in /usr/share/icons/gnome/

    I had to do it. The gnome icon made my theme look like poo.
