What is your Ubuntu version ? What is your Nautilus version ? On Ubuntu 12.10 with the gnome3-ppa activated (so Nautilus 3.6), I have icons for my templates. – remjg Dec 3 '12 at 14:41
@remjg I have updated topic. – Sergei Dec 4 '12 at 18:02

I think your problem has something to do with this Nautilus bug. If it's actually the case, your problem was resolved with this commit in August, so after Nautilus 3.4 was out.

Maybe if you report a bug in Launchpad, the solution will be backported in Precise (and maybe in Quantal for those who don't have the gnome3 PPA activated, someone has to check though) ?

Sorry, I can't help you more on this topic !
