Changing Icons.

Hi there, I need to ask for advice again.
I'm setting up Amiga OS on Winuae, there is something that is not totally clear to me about changing icons.
If you want to customized all icons, does it have to be done manually one by one (right click - Icons - Information - drag new icon), or is there a way to speed up the process?

I tried BestWB so I'm aware of the Iconset in Prefs, where you can either choose the Standard of Glowicons, however, in both cases where I have GlowIcons installed or not, if I try to set new Icons through IconEdit (Open - select the .info file - save as default) , nothing happens...

Am I doing something wrong?

There is no concept of an icon theme in AmigaOS, so yes it does have to be done manually. Of course, it would be possible to create a script which does this, but it's not trivial (except perhaps for the very basic Workbench utilities, which are more or less the same for any installation).

Alright,I see and it makes sense.
So yes, as I don't think I'll be using BestWB or similars, then I'll do it manually.

You can also use KDEview to update your icon images a little easier and faster. It displays all icons of a source directory in its window and you just have to drag and drop the target icon over the source. Works with ColorIcons too.

Tried both KDEview and CopyIcon, they seem to be valid options.
