Let's assume that I have a portable storage device that I use on multiple machines (running GNOME and otherwise, but let's focus on GNOME + Nautilus). Is there any way to set an icon for a folder in such a way that the icon will be stored (hidden) within the folder and displayed automatically on multiple machines?
I found this Brainstorm idea but thought it may be too specific in its use of
folder.jpg. I'm just interested in a way to do this, regardless of what the file is named.
To clarify, I'm focused on the use of icons, not thumbnails.
I'm starting to believe that there is no way to do this without regularly running a script to set icons based on, say, an icon stored within each folder.
