Since I upgraded my system to from Ubuntu 18.04.2 to 18.04.3, Nautilus stopped responding to folder icons (replicate images used as icons in
XDG_CONFIG_HOME or a similar location). Suddenly, it doesn't support any customized icon and all my folders icons are gone!
I have tried several ways to fix this issue but i didn't found a sufficient solution
All that I did:
Changing icons with the traditional way (GUI) , selecting the required folder then Alt+Enter (or Ctrl+I), clicking on the folder icon then browsing to the required
.pngfile (new icon) ... and this doesn't do anything
sudo gio set -t 'string' folder_name 'metadata::custom-icon' 'file:///home/required_icon.png'
...and this one return the following message
gio: Setting attribute metadata::custom-icon not supported
I tried to remove Nautilus, then reinstalled it again, but nothing changes
Please, can anyone help me to fix this?
Really, I can't do the job without customized folder icons...
In the picture I opened the same folder with Dolphin in the left and Nautilus on the right, I want to set a custom icon for each folder in Nautilus as I did with Dolphin, but it doesn't work :-\
