Where do I locate file extension icons?

I looked in /usr/share but there are so many folders I can’t find what I’m looking for. Is there a location for the .vb, .nes, .snes, and so on icons? I can’t find it no matter where I look.

The icons are colored corresponding to the console, with the consoles logo on it, if that helps.

Well I think you are looking at mimetypes…

So you can look in icon folders - using zoxide in my terminal I find these options:


Then when you have an unrecognised file you must work that out for yourself.

You’ll find most of the system’s existing options in /usr/share/icons/breeze/mimetypes/64/

So you then go to your browser and search snes icon and download that to a personal icon folder.

I have no idea if any installable icon sets will have Nintendo icons as standard.

Interestingly, I just looked at a Donky Kong SNES rom, and it’s file extension was .sfc


And the system recognises it and has “application-x-apple-diskimage.svg” icons already - no need to go searching.

Thank you so much for replying! Also thanks!!
