for xwd2.0

1st step (for changing icon when it's empty: empty recyclebin-> righclick recyclebin, click properties-> drag icon (.png) you like when it's empty, close

2nd step (for changing icon when it's full: delete someting like folder,pics,etc.-> righclick recyclebin, click properties-> drag icon (.png) you like when it's empty, close

for xwd5.6

you need to edit the the skin (.xwd)(by changin the image of icon of recyclebin) to change the icon's on recyclebin..

How to I do that, I have been trying to change the Trash Icon for like an hour now. Do you mean that I have to right click on the dock then on preferences? If yes, then after that where do I go, I've looked everywhere and can't find anything. If no, then how can I edit the whole skin/open the .xwd file?

I've also tried to manually change the icons through the skins folder but it doesn't work. Every time I start the program again, the old icons come back. Editing the Trash from the dock doesn't work too. Well basically the same problem that Draskher experienced.

It seems quite easy for the 2.0 version though.

Edit Dec 10: I've switched to ObjectDock, I'll probably gonna get a better support there.
