New to KDE ..help


Hi..I'm playing around with KDE 3.1 and I have the following question that I cannot find the answer to.

How can I change both the trashcan_full icon and the trashcan_empty icons? I right click on the trash and choose properties and click on the icon and choose the one I want but this only changes the "full" icon. I can successfully change them by choosing a different icon "theme" but this is not what I want since I want to only change the trash icons.

I have been using only fluxbox since I deleted winXP a month ago and i love it. KDE seems pretty cool too.

thanks for reading this,
drfrankie

all i know what i did, was i installed a new nautilus theme in my theme folder and i went into the folder where it is installed, and i just removed the old icons from the folder and put the ones i wanted in the folder and reloaded the theme, all you have to do is make sure the filenames are the same, like in my case there was an icon called trashcan_open.png and trashcan_full.png, and all i did is renamed the icons that i wanted to use to the names of the default ones and replaced them...

i am sure (but maybe theres a possibility theres not) that there is a way to do this otherwise, but thats what i did
