    Question Qt5 on Linux - Getting correct icon based on a file / mimetype from system icon theme

    If I have a path to a file.
    Can Qt help somehow in getting the correct icon for that file type?

    Example:
    if I got ~/pictures/qt_logo.png with mimetype image/png
    Could Qt figure out that set theme is Menda-Circle and path to corresponding icon would be /usr/share/icons/Menda-Circle/mimetypes/24x24/application-image-png.svg
