Right-click in the main panel allows to change icons associated to files of directories, and this is cool for content organization and so on.

Unfortunately, right click on small directories on the side pane does not allow to change its properties (such as icon).

I try to change the original directory icon, expecting that its side pane version would change accordingly, but surprisingly, nothing appends...

Any idea?

You currently cannot change the icons used in the places and bookmarks menus in nautilus.

This is a bug.

See this bug report on launchpad
