I'm new...help!


All I want to do is change my default icon set. There seems to be no where to do this.....I changed the Theme no problem under 'prefrences' but what about the icons... I see an Icon folder and I've put my downloaded icons in there....but what now??? I'm running RH8 and using GTK2. Help....I'm new and desperate!

if u use kde then press control center -> appearance and themes -> icons
then there is install new theme button , if this doesnt work then u will find a readme file with the icon set telling you how to install it.

If you're going to mess around in a big way with the look and feel of your desktop, then I would switch to KDE.
