On my desktop I have some folders, they all have custom icons.
I'm now trying to add alias' to my desktop with custom icons, how can this be done?
- Custom icons on a alias folder
Creating symbolic links to all the folders inside the folder (like below)
ln -s ~/Google\ Drive/Personal ~/Desktop/Google\ Drive
The second option has the bottleneck of not being dynamic; if I add a folder/file to ~/Google\ Drive, I'll need to create a new symbolic link and visa versa, if I delete a folder I'll need to delete the folder which represents the symbolic.
I could run a script that does this but this to me seems like i'm over complicating the problem.
# bash rm -r ~/Desktop/Google\ Drive/* rm ~/Desktop/Google\ Drive/* ln -s ~/Google\ Drive/* ~/Desktop/Google\ Drive
Update: Using @frdmn methods I get exactly what I want but using my method above I get what I want, bar trivial excess computation, but I also get the ability to show the number of items in the folder. Which could be useful.
