icons of files in total commander

Post by wineuser23 » Sun Feb 17, 2019 2:36 pm

I can open programs in total commander as in nemo with just double clicking on the file, but I do not see the correct icons as in nemo file explorer. Can I fix this somehow. I use linux mint.

Mind providing a screenshot showing the problem?

What version of wine do you use?

@wineuser23

The only way to fix the correct icons in Total Commander is to setup Windows file associations with all your native Linux file MIME types.
See Wine FAQ: 6.6.3 How do I associate a native program with a file type in Wine?
This would be a royal PITA, even if you automate the process with a (Python/BASH) script.
There isn't a nice Wine GUI application to do this process more "automagically", at present anyway...

Personally I can't see why someone would feel the need to run Total Commander, under Wine, on Linux.
A File Manager, which is native (Linux), is going to give you much more "frictionless" experience!

Certainly Plasma 5 (which I run) has all the features of the TC utility, baked in as native features.
For example Ark is incredibly powerful these days (the Plasma Archive Manager).

Even the files that do open with the same program in both, nemo and total commander, they do not have the same icons in the total commander. As total commander have its own icons.

What problem? I still don't understand what's wrong.

Oh I get what wineuser23 means.

Nemo is showing different icons then Total Commander, wineuser23 wants the icons to match in both programs.


But I’m not sure possible on Linux.
