  • Similar, but not what I'm trying to do. This just lets you set the general thumbnail size and icon size. There has to be a better way to do this for the raspberry PI. – Electronics_John Oct 25 '15 at 10:02
  • I believe that you like to specify custom icons. You can specify it by modifying shortcuts .desktop file. Here's an example of what it contains and what every line in it means. linux.koolsolutions.com/2009/09/11/… Hope it helps. – dhruvvyas90 Oct 25 '15 at 10:04
