The emblems in Nautilus don't quite fit my needs. How can I add a new one, just for my user account?
The previous answer really create a custom icon for the object, which is not exactly the same thing an emblem is.
The first answer unfortunately does not work anymore for gnome3. I found that, to create an emblem named for example "mymusic", you can add a png 48x48 image called
emblem-mymusic.pngin the directory:
and in the same directory you create a text file, called
emblem-mymusic.icon with the content:
[Icon Data] DisplayName=mymusic
That's it. Now you can set/unset them following the answer to Is there any tweak to bring back emblems in Nautilus?
