Icons

Postby AndyP79 on Sun Mar 08, 2009 1:07 pm

Hey all,
Okay, so I am newish to Mint, but been using Ubuntu for some time now, though, I am not super technical.

I have downloaded several icon themes, and something I run into in Mint, is that the folder mainly, though other icons also, don't work. Example, I downloaded the Glass Icon theme, and I get this strange, gray default type of folder instead of the themed one.

Anyone else experience this?

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Have you managed to solve the puzzle?

If not, give me the link to the Icon theme and I will gladly try and have a look at it.

The icon theme he's talking about works perfectly for me.

It's not just the Glass Icon theme. It's a lot of icon themes. Downloaded from different sources. MintInstall, LinuxMintArt.org, Gnome-look.org, Art Manager from the menu, etc.
I am thinking about trying a reload of the the computer, because last time I had it on here, the icons and all worked fine. I am going to try posting to the ubuntu forums also though first, and see what happens, I'll post answers here......
