    change nautilus icon

    hi,

    when i was using the mac4lin the nautilus icon was fine, but when i decided to use the normal ubuntu theme it was a really ugly shell thing.
    so now i have 2 questions:

    How do i change the icon

    and,

    Do you have any good ideas for a icon

    Thanks

    Re: change nautilus icon

    An icon theme is just a folder with a bunch of images. You can just replace any image with another one. User themes are installed in /home/USERNAME/.icons (that's a hidden folder) and system themes are installed in /usr/share/icons.

    Note: If you going to mess with a system theme, I suggest you to copy the theme from /usr/share/icons to /home/USERNAME/.icons.
