So I am using the pre-available theme Papirus-Dark-Maia which stores its icons in /usr/share/icons/Papirus-Dark-Maia/ and it has a Github folder icon already in it. So, how can I use that in my Github folder in the home directory? I read in a few threads that we can't use external icons in XFCE, but what if it's already present?
I assume you're using Thunar since xfce. I know you can put emblems on folders but have never tried swapping out the actual folder icons. Similar but not the same.
- Right click on folder
- Select 'Properties'
- Click 'Emblems' tab
- Select desired emblem
Yeah I know about the emblems but I wanna change the folder icon. Why are the folder icons there in the pre-existing icon themes when we can't even use it?
Add the icon theme to ~/.icons or ~/.local/share/icons
Yead, did, but nothing changed.
