Recently my customized icons inside my /home disappeared after an upgrade. For example i had a customized icon for the folder /home/USER/Downloads.
Last time i added these custom icon by right clicking the Downloads folder -> Properties -> drag and drop the new icon on the actual icon (or click the icon and navigate to the new icon) -> done.
Im not longer able to change the icons this way in /home/USER but i am able to change the icons if i navigate further to /home/USER/Downloads/TESTFOLDER
Im a bit out of a clue actually how this come up and how to solve this small issue.
Im on 16.04 by the way
