Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Just to experiment, I moved the folder

/user/share/icons/

away, as in saved it on a USB drive and deleted it from Linux.

Now, all icons are shown as the default "white" icon. Where is this icon stored? Can I modify it to change its appearance?

I am using CentOS Linux desktop with gnome.

I would guess that it is built into the program as a "null" icon which is very useful when someone does something like remove /usr/share/icons. If so, short of rebuilding all relevant Gnome binaries you likely can't change it. –  msw Sep 3 '13 at 21:45
