How To Change .iso Icons In Thunar [Solved]

The Thunar icon for an iso looks like a blank sheet of paper.....   How to assign an icon that looks like a CD/DVD for iso files?

File association are defined by *.desktop and mimeinfo.cache in /usr/share/applications/ or in ~/.local/share/applications/. I think that this also define what icon name are associated.

Xfce is NOT Xubuntu. Bugs in Xubuntu don't mean that Xfce is buggy ...

Re: How To Change .iso Icons In Thunar [Solved]

Found an easy way to do this and want to pass it on.......

I'm running Arch, so some details will have to be change to suit your distro.
This is how I changed my *.iso icon from a blank file looking icon to a nice cd/dvd icon.


1) Built and installed assogiate from the AUR
2) Assogiate wouldn't run im my user account so....
3) I ran it in gksu ie:  $ gksu assogiate
4) Click the Database tab and select the "system database"
5) Use the search function to find "iso". My search results showed a single entry with the name "x-iso9660-image"
6) Double click the entry to edit the "default icon"
7) Click on the box to the right of the default icon file listing, navigate to your icon of choice and select it.
8) Re-login to update the mime database.

Re: How To Change .iso Icons In Thunar [Solved]

Unfortunately, the above solution stopped working for some reason. So far, I tried rebuilding and reinstalling assogiate on my current updated system.

Running Arch linux 64bit,  linux 3.9.4-1,  assogiate 0.2.1-5,  xfdesktop 4.10.2-1,  thunar 1.6.3-1

Anyone have a solution for this?

Tracked down a problem for assogiate to use an .svg icon. Switching to a .png icon restored function as expected, but using png's looked bad scaled up.

On my system, I reinstalled the current versions of librsvg python2-rsvg packages. This solved all the problems...

Re: How To Change .iso Icons In Thunar [Solved]

I had a problem in Arch with some icons being replaced by this “blank sheet of paper” recently. I think it was caused by the librsvg update, or something related. I had to run a command to get my icons back; I think it was this one:

sudo /usr/bin/gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache

Re: How To Change .iso Icons In Thunar [Solved]

Over 5000 views of this post. I'm wondering if someone here who's part of the xfce team and has the capacity could either figure out whats really wrong in Thunar, or possibly make this fix into a patch to submit. It would be a nice default setting.  I'd do it but it's a bit beyond my capabilities.

I've had to come up with a new fix for thunar showing a text icon for iso images rather than a CD icon. Assogiate made this really easy, but it's long gone these days. This took a bit of trial and error to figure out. It works 100% on my current Arch system and should work on any others.

You'll need to place 2 identical .xml files within the .hidden files of your home directory.

Call the files: 

 override.xml 

Most of the contents were copied from /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml , with a few additions.

This is what was added to copied part to make it work:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<mime-info xmlns="http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/shared-mime-info">  
  <mime-type type="application/x-cd-image">
    <comment>raw CD image</comment>
     ...
     ...
     ... a bunch of code...
     ...
     ...
    <icon name="media-optical"/>
  </mime-type>
</mime-info>


Put the override.xml files in the following directories:

~/.local/share/mime/

and

~/.local/share/mime/packages/


Copy and paste the code below and put in in:
override.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<mime-info xmlns="http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/shared-mime-info">  

  <mime-type type="application/x-cd-image">

    <glob weight="80" pattern="*.iso"/>
    <glob pattern="*.iso9660"/>
    <icon name="media-optical"/>
  </mime-type>
</mime-info>

After you get the files placed, run the following commands. First as user, second as root.

$ update-mime-database ~/.local/share/mime/
# update-mime-database /usr/share/mime/

So as I said, trial and error. I think a few of these steps may be unnecessary, but it's what I did to get it working.
