    Hello. I was looking for a way to disable the sub-icons shown next to each of my operating systems in rEFInd (e.g. vol_internal.icns). I could not find an option to do it in the rEFInd configuration file, so the solution I came up with was to create a 32x32 transparent ICNS file and overwrite vol_internal.icns with it.

    In case anyone else wants to disable certain icons in rEFInd, I have posted the file here:

    http://www.davidegrayson.com/hold/transparent32.icns

    The file was created with GIMP and the png2icns utility that comes with libicns. It was not trivial to create this file, so I would suggest that Rod Smith include this file with the next version of rEFInd. Hopefully it will be useful to others. Thanks!

    It was possible to disable the icons (volume) on refit. But apparently it does not work on refind.

     
  • There was already a transparent.icns icon in rEFInd, added with the 0.6.1 version.
