rEFInd inquiry about using another theme

Post by drpeppercan » Fri Sep 21, 2018 9:49 am

So in the refind.conf file there are these default flags/entries:

#icons_dir myicons
#icons_dir icons/snowy

First question is:
Why these default directory/subdirectory names do not match the actual files layout?
I mean, if you see the img file at the bottom, you'll see that the icons directory is simply called "icons" (not myicons). And, inside the icons dir there's no subdir called "snowy", in fact, there's no file starting with an "s".
So, if indeed the above entries serve to tell rEFInd where to find the icons, then I do not get it!

Second question:
If there's only one icons directory, then why to have 2 entries?
Perhaps we can have more than one icons dir available?

Thanks guys!

Code: Select all

#icons_dir myicons
#icons_dir icons/snowy
The # is a comment mark, which renders the line into a comment, not an option.

Oh, that's good to know!
Then, where/how am I to enter my icons directory?

Comment out the existing line, assuming there is one, and uncomment one of the custom lines, then add your path in place of myicons or icons/snowy.
