Nemo change bookmark icons

Post by arnad » Sat Nov 17, 2018 12:50 pm

Hello everyone,

I am using custom bookmarks in nemo and would like to change their icons. However, neither the context menu of the bookmark nor Bookmarks -> Edit Bookmarks seem to contain a way to change it. I tried changing the icons of the folders themselves, but that did not have any effect.

Greetings,

Arnad

I don't think there is a way to do this (certainly not in Mint 19). The symbolic icon type used in the sidebar is stored in the folders attributes. You can view this via the terminal command gio info /path/to/folder. Unfortunately it doesn't appear that it is writeable using gio set which is the way that some of these attributes can be changed.

Do you mean changing all the Bookmark icons as a group - which is possible - or individual icons?

I would like to change specific icons - those of bookmarks I added myself. Right now they all get the same icon, which is not helpful for navigation.
