In 16.04 (Lubuntu) I added the following entry in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css :

GtkFileChooserDialog GtkPlacesSidebar.sidebar {
    -gtk-icon-style: regular;

and with Icon theme Humanity this meant I got regular colour (non-symbolic) icons, but this does not work in Lubuntu 18.04, so if I launch file-roller which uses GTK3, I still get black symbolic icons when I open a file.

Does anyone know how I can get NON-symbolic icons for File Chooser Dialog for GTK3 apps in 18.04?

I want GTK2 apps and GTK3 apps to look as similar as possible so the screenshot below from 18.04 shows GTK2 app on the left with the icons I want to use and a GTK3 app on the right with Symbolic icons that I do not want to use:
