Nemo sidebar bookmark icons appearance (CLOSED)
« on: April 29, 2019, 08:03:02 am »
Hello there,
I have customized the appearance of the icons [of folders] that I have then added as bookmarks to Nemo sidebar. The icons that are on Peppermint partition are all dandy, but those on another partition (that mounts automatically) have the 'default' appearance until I click on them. Then they stay the way I want until logout.

Is there a way to tell Nemo to display the altered icons on the automounting partition correctly without me clicking on them first?

Thanks :)

Right-clicked the folder, clicked Properties and drag-and-dropped icons from
Code: [Select]
/usr/share/icons/Peppermix-7-Red/scalable/places
onto where the default folder icon was.

Oh and, Peppermint 8 here :)

How are the partitions automounted ?

Are they mounted when the system boots .. or do they only mount when you click on them in the file manager ?

What are these other partitions (usb sticks/external hdd/etc.) ? .. and are they ALWAYS attached (ie. NEVER REMOVED) ?



If unsure, REBOOT

Once the system reaches the desktop, do nothing except open a terminal and post the output from
Code: [Select]
mount
once you've done that, click the partitions you're talking about in the file manager (so you can see the contents) .. now open a terminal and post the output from
Code: [Select]
mount
again .. so we can see if anything changed

It's an internal hdd partition, mounted at system boot.

Code: [Select]
/dev/sda5 on /media/hofy/9870EC5D70EC441A type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other,blksize=4096)
no change after clicking the icons.

I observed they change to proper images when I open a parent folder that contains the bookmarked folders. Nemo simply doesn't check for changes in appearance until it has to display them. Just a bit unfortunate it doesn't remember.

It's not a big deal. Just wondered if there might be an easy fix.

I reckon (but a guess at this point) the problem is that partition isn't automounted at system bootup .. only gets mounted when you click it for the first time in the file manager.

Do you want to automount it at bootup ?

If so, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
blkid
and the contents of
Code: [Select]
xed /etc/fstab

I set up automount using the 'disks' utility.

the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
/dev/sda5   988499968 1809508351 821008384 391,5G Microsoft basic data

Code: [Select]
sudo blkid
/dev/sda5: UUID="9870EC5D70EC441A" TYPE="ntfs" PARTLABEL="Basic data partition" PARTUUID="135a96ca-d086-4561-9dd2-1fc3568678f4"

and the contents of
Code: [Select]
xed /etc/fstab
UUID=082eee45-25b2-49da-b176-03f6814ad5a0 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1

If I were you I'd create a mountpoint at
Code: [Select]
sudo mkdir /mnt/Windows
then run:
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/fstab
change your /fstab entry from
Code: [Select]
/dev/disk/by-uuid/9870EC5D70EC441A /media/hofy/9870EC5D70EC441A auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-name=Data 0 0
to
Code: [Select]
UUID=9870EC5D70EC441A        /mnt/Windows     ntfs-3g   defaults,nls=utf8,umask=000,dmask=027,fmask=137,uid=1000,gid=1000,windows_names 0 0
(be sure to copy/paste ALL of the above stanza .. it scrolls to the side)

SAVE the file and exit the text editor.

Now make sure you get no errors from:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount -a
if you get no errors, reboot to test ..

The Windows partition should then be automounted @ /mnt/Windows at bootup.

Now to make it appear in the left hand column of the file manager, navigate to /mnt/Windows, then in the file manager click Bookmarks > Add Bookmark and it'll now display in the left hand column.



Dunno if this will solve your problem, but IMHO it's a better way of mounting a Windows (NTFS) partition than fuse.

I mounted the partition as you recommended. It didn't affect the sidebar icon appearance tho.
Not a big deal. Thanks for your attention.

Hi hofy, you might try making an npg image if the folder icon you want and saving it in your home/Pictures folder and refer to that location. I don't know for sure that will work for nemo but I have to do that to a couple of ICE apps I have in my side panel.
What was I thinking?

Hey alynur,
thanks for the input. Did not work.

It's got to do with the partitioning. A folder on linux partition displays correctly, the others don't.
Let's close this. I can live with it. Thank you all.
