The "problem" I am facing is that I uninstalled the Ubuntu 14.04's default LibreOffice and installed OpenOffice , but the .doc, .xls, .odt, .ods .... files even though they open by default with OpenOffice, their icon is still the original LibreOffice icon. I was searching every where to find the LibreOffice Icons but could not find it in /usr/share/icons in any subfolders, I am running out of ideas.
Where are these settings stored?
I tried the following:
1. Right clicked on a .doc file and click Properties and than click on it's icon image and change it, but this only changes the specific files icon not the icon for all the .doc files.
2. After uninstalling LibreOffice and installing OpenOffice I created a new user, and logged in as that but even the new user was seeing the icons as LibreOffice default icons. Which make me think that the settings are rather system wide than user specific settings.
assogiate but it is not available in Ubuntu Software Center anyomore , --maybe is not for Unity desktop.
4. The solution given at Change filetype icon (Pcmanfm LXDE) is referring to an other desktop environment "LXDE", --- I think.
5. The "solution" given in How to change the icons of multiple files from terminal? is rather a workaround, because as far as I can tell he is modifying the icon for each file,folder individually. I would like this change to happen everywhere in the system and even for new files.
