Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80864
Cannot select 'custom icon' for Trash icon on desktop
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:02:41 EST
Description of problem:
With the 'User's Home' and 'Start Here' icons on the Gnome desktop you can
open the right mouse button click menu and under 'Properties' choose
'Select Custom Icon' and the change the icon to something else.
This is not possible for the 'Trash' icon.
Selecting 'Properties' gives a very basic menu where you can change nothing
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Possibly related to #80387 and #80616
The way the trash full/empty icon change is handle makes this impossible atm,
unfortunately. Changing this requires redoing the trash system a lot, which
might happen in the future.
The only way to change your thrashcan at the moment is to use the icon themeing
You can do this by adding files named:
to ~/.icons/$theme/48x48/filesystems/ where $theme is the theme you're using
(probably "gnome" or "Bluecurve").
