Hello. Just an simple idea - make icons in Shortcut plugin customizable, i.e. able to change icon for favorite shortcuts. May be without any GUI customization, just take a settings for directory from Nautilus/Dolphin/.desktop file, etc...
I hope it is not too complicated.

And, of course - thanks a lot guys for this great Product - I use it everyday - pretty, stable, just cool! Keep it up!

I think you can customize them already, if you put the correct icons (something like gnome-volume.png, see the Tux'n'Tosh theme that is on our server) in the icons folder of the current theme.

Yes, for volumes, cd's and other there are icons in theme. But I'm speak about icons for favorite directories (from nautilus for example, stored in ~/.gtk-bookmarks)...

ah ok sorry
did you try to assign a custom icon to the folder in Nautilus (you will need to restart the dock maybe) ?

Guest, Thursday 09 June 2011 à 17:44

Yes, I does. But nothing...
also, Nautilus displayed custom icons in main view, but does not display them in "Places" pane.

too bad then, because the dock displays exactly the same thing as the Nautilus pane
maybe you could ask them to have the custom icons displayed in the pane, then we could do the same
