BL 5.1 - How to edit shared folder icon, please?


In my home folder, I created a shared folder, let's call it "MyShare".
Now, I would like to give it another icon to make it look like the folder "Public" or something similar (I mean, where there's sort of a hook symbol inside the icon).

How can I do this, if I use the MokshaGreen theme, please?

You have to select another icon set via Setting-Setting Panel-Look-Application Theme-Icon Tab

Or simply create one and add it to your current icon theme folder in /usr/share/icons

Actually, what I had in mind, was to edit just this one icon, without selecting another icon set.

In Linux Mint, in the folder properties, there's an option to add an emblem to an icon.

Is there a chance of doing something like that in BL5.1 as well?

I understand now

I was not sure firstly but I somehow knew I saw emblems somewhere. But where? In Thunar file manager under folder properties...

EDIT: I am not able to find this feature in Pcmanfm as our default file manager. I do not like it and prefer Thunar.

I also use MokshaGreen theme btw, glad I'm not the only one, I was disappointed it isn't included in the RC ISO like it was with old iso...

Sounds like the waiter has a real solution.

I thought of a workaround myself. You could just create a desktop file that is copy of pcmanfm, but change it to open the folder you want, and change the icon to whatever you want, and then put that desktop file wherever as a kind of link.

I also noticed the "public" folder has a different icon already to identify it as shared or something maybe?
