... Feel free to add your own example above to help other Linux-lovers !


update-icon-caches is a wrapper script for updating the icon caches in a list of directories.

In each of the directories passed as arguments, the icon cache is updated if it is already present. It is not created if it does not already exist.

If the theme index file is not present, the icon cache is removed.
