New File Icon


#1

The default file icon for ruby is a bit ugly. Compare it to Python’s
file icon to see what I mean. Are there any plans to change this for
1.9, and if not is there a way to submit an alternative?

Uh.

Ruby doesn’t have a default icon. They’re just text files. Whatever
icon you’re seeing is coming from your OS/window manager/what have you.
Talk to whoever made that :slight_smile:

If you’re on Windows, I believe the icon comes from the One-Click Ruby
Installer and not Ruby itself. You can always associate it with another
one
if you want in the File Type Associations dialog.

Oh, I know that but that would only change it for me. I’d like to be
able to submit a new file icon for anyone who’s using Ruby.

Talk to the guy that maintains the One-click Ruby Installer.

I’d love to see a beautiful gem symbol instead of the ugly creature
that’s on my laptop’s ruby files :slight_smile:

If you get in touch with the admins, I’d be happy to design an icon
for it!

You can’t really. On OS X, for example, the icon reflects the
application designated to open the file-type, it can of course be
changed any time (the default app to open with) But changing icons is
just worth little effort for files.
I’d suggest an icon utility that lets you run themes on your
machine’s icons.
