Icons - please help

Hi all...

My problem is that i can't change system icons (Trash, mounted CDs, the Desktop Icon etc.).

I dont want to install a whole icon theme, just some individual icons. how do i do this?

It depends on your desktop manager, but usually the only thing you need to do is right-click, select "Properties" and then change the icon in the dialog box that shows up.

Håkan, I don't think that works with the desktop devices, at least not in KDE. I'm sure there's a way, maybe someone else knows. (I'm also a newbie)
