The icons of symbolic links in nautilus looks ugly in list view no matter the size or icon theme

thanks for the reply!
sorry about the link, Im installing ubuntu now to try it out so my server is down for the moment,
do you mean change the icon theme?? if thats what you mean, yes i have, and the icon changes but it just shows the emblem, not the folder icon with the symbolic link emblem like in the "icon view"
