Folders with icons

An user ask me why not the directories have a icon to representate its functionality and help to new linux users to know what do every directory.

I made a first version based in .directory files, maybe it could be a good idea to implement this in konqueror code.

I can not change the proc directory (I can't write it) and the tmp directory lose its .directory file every time you reboot.

To install, just run the command "tar
xvfj folders_icon.tar.bz2 -C /" like root


Now the directories are represented with a folder and an icon to representate its functionality-

...the thing is, everybody was talking about this like the possibiulities I mentioned didn't exist at all, including you. No disrespect for your work, new folders that you created can be added to .kde/icons/filesystems, and used as I said.

Maybe I don't write English very well but in the resume you can read:

I made a first version based in .directory files, maybe it could be a good idea to implement this in konqueror code.

I never try to deceive nobody when I create this little hack, is just a few .directory files plus more icons.

I want to discuss if this will be a hack that can be incorporated in konqueror code, no if this hack may be continue alone. have I explained myself correctly now? :-)

When i was using Gnome for a brief period i really did like the idea of emblems having folders is good but emblems would mean more custamisability

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
