[Locked] Default icon - Using the same image for all application icons

Hello,

I've been using Glx-Dock for a while, but mostly for its functionality. Now i discovered all the fancy fun stuff it was hiding from me! I really like the Impulse applet that makes the icons move to music and now I'm trying to make a theme that goes well with this effect. I want all launchers to look the same. But it seems i have to set an icon for every application. That's not a problem, but i find it unnecessary to have 10 or more copies of the same image with just a different name. Or i can create launchers and set the image path there. So much I figured, but new applications, applications that have no icon or launcher will show system icons, anyway. Glx-Dock has an option to use the same image that goes behind all icons, but i need it to cover the icons, like an indicator.

Hello,

I don't think it's interesting to add an option to do that
But it's maybe possible to indicate a wrong theme by editing this file:
~/.config/cairo-dock/current_theme/cairo-dock.conf
And modify this line:
default icon directory=(...)
(simply replaced (...) by a wrong value; e.g.: ctfvygbuhnisodf and then launch the dock)

Note that you can also use symbolic links instead of duplicate a file.

PS: don't hesitate to share screenshots and/or screencasts with this effect

Symbolic links! Why didn't I think of that?

Thank You. Okay, but the "option" is there already, almost. Anyway, i will use symbolic links, maybe... or.... Okay, i think i had a cool idea. I will post screenshots along with a theme pack when i'm done.
