    Question Custom Mime Type Icon

    I followed a few tutorials online and was able to create my own mime type (application/dbp), which opens in the program I've associated it with. But I can't figure out how to give it a custom icon. According to the tutorials, I just need to take an icon, rename it, and place it in the /usr/share/icons/gnome directory. For example, I am using a scalable-vector graphic, so I name it "application-dbp.svg", then place it in /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/mimetypes. I'm not sure if it's necessary, but then I use the following command:
    Code:
    sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime
    Then I refresh nautilus... nothing. So I log out, and back in. Still, the icon for .dbp extensions is a plain white paper. So am I close to doing it the right way? Does anybody know how to do it?
