I have several folders which I've changed the default icons using right click > Properties > icon > click and then selecting a image file inside the folder.
That's fine. My
/home partition is different from my root "
/" partition, which means that I do not erase my personal files when reinstalling a new version of Ubuntu (currently 18.04).
However when I lastly (and previously) updated the OS, all custom icons are gone. I have not changed the
/home partitions or anything. I have then, arduously, re-customized the folder icons.
Now that a new version (18.10) is on the way, I wonder what I have to do to preserve the custom icons. I usually do not upgrade using the upgrade tool, because it keeps causing problems. I prefer a fresh install, preserving the
A hint is deeply appreciated.
