change the trash can icons in kde 3.3


how would i go about doing this? i have icons (png files) that i would like to use on my desktop, but the trash can is not like other link files where i can change the icon on the links properties page like Home or something else (like a link i out there myself)

does anyone know how to change both trash can icons (full and empty) for kde 3.3?

thanks!

right click on the trash can icon on the desktop, then left click on the trash can icon in the dialogue box. You can select one of the other icons the system provides, or click on the 'other icons' radio button and browse to the location of the icons you want to use.

little late.

well, i know how to change the trash icon.

run konqueror in root.

goto:
/home/yourloginname/Desktop
in this map you' ll see the Trash dir. now you rightclick thing works.

the only problem now is, there is no difference between an empty or a full Trash.

still looking for that myself.

trash icon settings

look what i found on linuxquestions.org
go into your trashcan directory and edit: .directory
the directory behavoir is in this document. Check out the Icon= and EmptyIcon= lines. I bet you don have got the EmptyIcon=.

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Directory
Icon=trashcan_full
EmptyIcon=trashcan_empty
Name=Prullenbak

now your happy

luck
