How can I change Google Chrome icon in Linux Mint?

Postby McV on Thu May 17, 2012 4:32 am

Just have installed Google Chrome and noticed that it's icon appears with ugly grayish blue background. The icon seems kind of native "Mint" icon, because on other distros Chrome icon looks usual: like only Chrome's logo

How can I change it to defaul? Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Are you sure you have Chrome and not Chromium? Chromium's icon is blue/grey.

That is the default icon, but you can change it. Not sure what mint edition and theme your running though. If you have the icon set you want you just have to replace the default ones. My default icons are in usr/share/icons/Mint-X/apps then you will have quit a few folders with different sized icons. To replace them you need a icon set like this http://www.iconarchive.com/show/browsers-icons-by-tatice/Google-Chrome-icon.html but i am also running Mint 13 Cinnamon with Mint -X icon theme. Never really messed with icons before this edition so i am not sure how different older versions are. But that how i changed mine to this squar looking one with no boarder.
