I've installed Fedora 18 (x64) minimum and I installed Enlightenment with Nautilus. But I see that there are icons missing in Nautilus, I have selected the gnome icon theme so I must be missing some package(s).

Does anyone know which ones?


ss of missing icons


Potential solution #1

Try these 2 commands first:

gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/gnome
gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/hicolor

Potential solution #2

If that doesn't resolve the issue try installing this RPM, alacarte.

yum install alacarte

Potential solution #3

yum install 'gnome-icon-theme*'
  • The first 2 commands and installing alacarte doesn't work. And when I try to install alacarte I get this error: pastebin.com/XkDxU0iF – Ruben May 7 '13 at 21:12
  • What was the error? Also did you reboot after doing those commands? – slm May 7 '13 at 21:13
  • Not sure of that error, try #3 first. Alacarte was a way to try and get an RPM installed that needed the GNOME icons. If 3 doesn't work we'll circle back to that one. – slm May 7 '13 at 21:19

    Solution #3 worked for me. I'd just reinstalled ubuntu (Pop!_OS 18.04 LTS), and all my icons were missing in Nautilus. Installing the gnome-icon-them, and then updating the gtk icon cach (#1) fixed the issue, and restored my icons. – Crusty Barnacle Mar 2 at 18:54
