Got my trash can icons changed properly and they are working!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1


Okay, here is how I did it. Go to this folder "file:/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/" In that folder, there will be icons for all selectable sizes, from 16x16 to 128x128. Since I use 48x48 icons, I went into this folder file:/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/48x48/filesystems (which is a sub folder of file:/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/). I then (as root) copied over the original icons with my icons of choice (OSX steel trash can empty and full). I then exited out of konqueror and tested them. IT WORKED!!!!!!!!

However, I am running into a small problem (which i think is a bug). When I put something in the trash can, the full trash can icon doesn't appear. There is only the word "trash" below where the icon is supposed to be. Why is that? I even tried rebooting but the problem still exists. Can anyone help me?

Well, I don't know why but when I switched to one of my other user accoutns, everything worked just fine. I know I made a mistake in changing the trash can icon before I found out the proper way to do it so that is probably why it isn't working. So you could probably use my instructions and it would work for you.
