How to change Krusader's icons and appearance?


I am wanting to change Krusader's appearance, as I don't like its current icon theme -- but I've tried changing Qt5's settings (via root, with Qt5ct) and it doesn't seem to affect the program at all.

Is there some way to edit Krusader's choice of icons, for folders and files inside the file manager?

I haven't found a way to do this yet.

Krusader uses the current theme icons, you can set them through plasma's system settings tool (and restart Krusader).

No, it doesn't appear to, at least not in root mode -- changes to the theme icons have no effect on Krusader's look, while in root mode.

In the normal mode, yes, it does work, but I need to know how to apply them to the root mode version. I've tried running systemsettings5 via sudo, but that doesn't seem to work either.

Krusader looks like this -- http://img09.deviantart.net/3b27/i/2...ss-db7m1gm.jpg

whereas I want the icons to look like this: http://www.tecmint.com/wp-content/up...le-Manager.png

Mostly, I want to change it because I don't like these icons it's currently using -- I much prefer the Oxygen icons, like in the 2nd picture.

Take a look at https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=349650. That solves your problem?

Yes, that's the issue I'm having, though unfortunately I can't seem to get Krusader to accept the needed environment variables through kdesudo.

Launching Krusader through the console, with sudo, works. Launching it in KDE with kdesudo doesn't -- I still get the unwanted icons coming up.

I've already posted a question to the KDE forums, but I'll have to update it to reflect this...

Edit -- I found the solution here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=353263#c12

I found that changing the HOME environment variable fixes problem

try executing kdesudo -c "HOME=$HOME dolphin"




I did that, and changed the command entry to: kdesudo -c "HOME=$HOME krusader" and it worked...

Thanks for the info and link.
