Ubuntu: Is there a way to make Launcher read icon from usb?


Gnome in 10.04, and Nautilus still today under 12.04, read the autorun.inf file from my USB drive and display correctly the (.ico) icon for the given drive.

However, Unity's Launcher shows a generic icon. How can I change that? Is it possible to have it read the .ico (or, say, a .png) from within the drive? Or otherwise assign a specific icon to a particular device? -- i.e., I'm not interested in substituting one generic icon for another.


In Unity, it is not (yet) possible to do this, because Unity is coded to use the default system icon for removable drives, so you would need to file a bug against Unity asking for this functionality.
