Re: Default icon for FLAC files

I removed Play using AppZapper, emptied the trash, restarted the system and then installed the r1077 version. Well, all the icons are the same. It is interesting, though, that when I'm selecting the files using Finder's search (even in the same folder), they are shown with the correct 'Generic' icon!

Re: Default icon for FLAC files

I use the latest 'unstable' version r1077. Maybe installing that one solves the problem. It is possible that one of the icons became corrupted (you can always open the Play.app folder and look at the icons inside it, along with Info.plist to see which icon is being mapped to .flac files). I downloa...

Re: Default icon for FLAC files

Maybe the developer of the program could help with the issue? It looks like a program's problem, not a system's one...

Anyway, thank you very much! I learned a lot, especially about permissions, so someday it'll help me with something else ;-)

It is Play. The only problem is the icon.

Re: Default icon for FLAC files

So Rebuilding LaunchServices should correct any icon issues, certainly if Maintenance does not only rebuild the related user file but also the related system files. Does Maintenance ask for your administrator pasword? Yes, it does. I thought that after rebuilding LaunchServices a restart is needed,...

Re: Default icon for FLAC files

The fact that the execute bits are set, may very well be part of the problem. They should not have execute permissions. Your flac files do all have a .flac file name extension? Then you can remove the execute permissions for all flac files in a folder: chmod -x /path/to/the/folder/*.flac (You can a...

Re: Default icon for FLAC files

Those music files should normally have privileges -rw-r--r-- With execute permissions it would be -rwxr-xr-x All my music files (both FLAC and MP3 (the latter have a correct icon!)) have -rwxr-xr-x or -rwxr-xr-x@ permissions. I changed them for one file using the command 'chmod 644 [filename]', and...

Re: Default icon for FLAC files

On my system, the files that will be opened by Play, do have a score icon, but it can be recognized as such only in large icons. It seems so, this 'score' icon looks like a Windows TXT icon. Only when enlarged, one can see scores, not texts, depicted. Do your flac files appear with the dark icon of...

Re: Default icon for FLAC files

Select in the Finder a flac file that does not yet open in Play and choose "Get Info" from the File menu (or hit command-I). In the Info panel choose Play as the application to open the file and click the "Change all..." button to make the change for all similar files. (If the 'Open with' section i...

Default icon for FLAC files

Hello, I have a problem with the icon for FLAC files. I go to Get Info - the Open with... field - now I select Play as a default application to open all FLAC files and can see in the Preview field a score sheet icon. Now I press the 'Change all' button to apply these settings to all FLAC files - oop...
