Add custom emblems in Linux Mint Mate

You can make and assign your very own Gnome emblems to files and directories in Linux Mint Mate ( Tested on Mint 18 ).

  • Go to Home folder
  • Select from menu Edit -> Backgrounds and Emblems…
  • Choose Emblems
  • Add a New Emblem…
  • Enter the Keyword
  • Click Image to select image file

You can add any custom image of whatever size, as it gets rescaled as needed.

Still you may want to use one of the standard sizes (16×16, 22×22, 24×24, 32×32, 48×48, 96×96) and save it as a PNG file in a location of your choice.

Try to start with the image size of 24×24. You may use one of the existing emblem files for reference, for example /usr/share/icons/Mint-X/emblems/24/emblem-favorite.png .
