  • What you're really trying to do is make all the icons go away, right? It's not that hard, guys. Saves a lot of heart ache and hard drive activity to just tell Gnome to not display the icons.

  • Changes your desktop background image in gnome. Update the directory to wherever you keep your wallpapers. I like to create a sub-directory in my Wallpaper folder called "cycle" that I use to define the wallpapers I wish to loop in cron. ex: gconftool-2 -t str -s /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename "$(find ~/Wallpapers/cycle -type f | shuf -n1)" Show Sample Output

  • Today I needed to choose an icon for an app. My simpler way: put all of /usr/share/icons in myicons folder and brows'em with nautilus. Then rm -r 'ed the entire dir. Show Sample Output

    mkdir myicons && find /usr/share/icons/ -type f | xargs cp -t myicons
