Version 1.9.54: Icon Selector Doesn't Work in Desktop Entry Editor
December 31, 2009 07:12AM
Since my favorite file manager, EmelFM2, wasn't in the repositories, I compiled the latest version. Unfortunately, the process did not add an icon to the menu.

I dragged to the bar the "question mark" icon from the upper left corner of the EmelFM2 window. This put a blank space in the bar from which I can execute EmelFM2. I right-clicked the spot and brought up the Desktop Entry Editor. When I clicked the icon there, a file dialog of some kind came up, but there seems to be no way to get it to navigate away from the home folder. I need to get to usr/local/share/pixmaps/emelfm2/ to get the icon.

I cheated by copying the icon to my home folder.

Hi,
Yeah I had same problem first time, here the way I took:
First logically it display by default your home directory, here just add a bookmark, then click on the new created bookmark in the left column it should be named same as your user name. Then you will manage to use the "going one directory up" link... I suggest you to put another bookmark at your root directory /

Hope it helps...

Ciao @++
