An AppleScript to reinstall custom icons after updates
Authored by: Mac Berry on Nov 20, '09 01:09:25PM

Thanks Andrew. I guess I can see that having a script prepared for a given app, if that app returns to default several times a week, could be handy, though your hint didn't describe that problem.

I think I'd be asking why this is happening though - I have all my apps set up to auto update, and yet very rarely see an icon change. Maybe I just don't use custom icons enough for it to be an issue, though I do use them.

Perhaps you could use your script as a folder action, tied to a folder that you know changes when an app updates? That way you wouldn't have to do ANYTHING?

I actually do have a Hazel (noodlesoft.com) rule that does just that. However, the vast majority of the time, it is the restarting of Dropbox that changes the icon.

It's bad form on Dropbox's part, and I hope that it will be fixed soon.
