I think, actually, this needs to be an answer. Tell me if I'm wrong. The Minecraft icon has no circle and isn't flat because that's not the way the icon was made. The rest of the icons are part of the Numix set, which has specially made icons for most programs on Ubuntu. Not everything is going to conform with your theme, since the theme makers can't ...

Apparently, scalable icons are used in the menubars for Ubuntu 15.04. The FS Icon set specifies a minimum value for the scalable icons as 257 pixels. The solution is to set the minimum value appropriately, so the icons can be scaled down to the required size. sudo sed -i "s|MinSize=|MinSize=8\n#MinSize=|g" /usr/share/icons/fs-icons-ubuntu*/index.theme ...

The thumbnail indeed is not an icon. Thumbnails are reduced-size versions of pictures, used to help in recognizing and organizing them. Really, what you are talking about is not a problem since nautilus deals with each file type as the same. What I want to say take a look for all directories in your system. All icons have the same size. Take a look at ...

Wine store it's icons in ~/.local/share/icons/hicolor. And becuase Wine hates you, it stores all the filetype icons not in mimetypes directory but in app directory of every resolution.

Sometimes applications use their own paths for the icon. In this case, Emacs uses the following path: /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/emacs24.svg To change this behavior, the file emacs24.desktop can be changed. sudo nano /usr/share/applications/emacs24.desktop Replace this line: Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/emacs24.svg with ...

I eventually figured this out. The secret is to find the .desktop file (for me, this was /usr/share/applications/emacs24.desktop), and open it via sudo in the text editor of your choice. Then, you can edit the "icon" line to point towards your desired icon.

I launched the application from a terminal window and used the "Lock to launcher" right click option on its panel icon, which seemed to work as expected once I dropped into the ...
