SOLVED:Accidentally Changed Home Icon (Mint 12, Cinn 1.3.1)

Post by drjster »

I mistakenly changed my Home icon - it no longer is the default "house" icon. Functionally it works fine but how do I get the default Home icon back? I tried right clicking on the changed home icon and then chose properties > clicked on the icon image > revert but that didn't work...the same ugly icon remains. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

In answer to my own question, restoring the default Home icon involved right clicking on my changed home icon > properties > click on icon image in basic tab > navigating to usr/share/icons/Mint-X/places/48 > highlighting folder_home.svg and choosing open. That changed the Home icon on my desktop to its default.
