thanks for the answer but that only changes the icon associated with the 
application and not the icon associated with the file type.

So a lot of files types have the unknown icon type in dolfin.   Unfortunately 
there seems not to be an icon comand in the xml file associated with the file 
type.  For exemple x-fortran file type.

What I would like to know is were the icon information is saved because there 
is a lot of file types that have a icon associated with then for exemple x-
chdr, troff, x-csrc, x-csharp just to mention a few under the text banner.

I think that this is essentially oxygem missing a lot of icon but even if 
oxygen had all the icons associated with all the file default known types I 
would still like to know how I could define a new  file type and associate an 
icon to it.
