Files: designs for mimetype symbolics | example .iso .torrent in adwaita

topic is open but posting is restricted, kinda like the door is open but do not enter :crazy_face:

after 44 days still no ’ new information ’ no update & no resolution.

welcome to kindergarten.

Your parallels are wrong. The accurate one would be: the door is open, but do not enter unless you have something useful to contribute. Ie., do not enter to engage in activities that are not constructive.

That’s usually an implicit requirement for all public spaces, with or without doors.

Let’s examine that.

Your statement implies that every query on the forum needs to be resolved: this is not the case. Forum users help each other, and where fixes/workarounds are known, the combined knowledge of the forum users tends to reach these. When one is not known, forum users help each other file issues, or take the next best possible action. Forum users, and indeed, Fedora community members, are not upstream developers. When possible, we will submit fixes and patches, but this is not always possible.

Fedora and all other Linux distributions are downstream. We take software that’s developed by others and package it up to produce well integrated operating systems and components. We do not develop all the software that is packaged in the distribution.

A fellow forum user has pointed out that this is something that the Gnome developers need to, and are indeed working on:

  • “after 44 days” implies that this is enough for a fix to be pushed. What is this based on? Have you checked the Gnome release cycles? Have you checked what other tasks their community is working on? Have you checked what the priority of this task is?

So, you write statements where you don’t say things directly, but make veiled insinuations, and when someone points this out, you resort to statements like this:

Let’s break this down too for clarity. Your implication is that only children in kindergarten should be good to each other. Is that true? Should others not be good to each other?

Now, in your personal affairs, you are free to behave with others as you wish. We have no say in the matter. However, in the Fedora community channels, being excellent to each other is necessary—irrespective of whether you’re in kindergarten or not.

So, if you would like to continue participating in the community, you must be excellent to others. This is non negotiable. I’ve flagged your posts here again because they are inappropriate and are not being excellent to others as demonstrated above.

Finally, I want to note that forum users voluntarily help others. If one is abrasive and unkind to other forum users, even if they know how to help, they may choose not to. There’s no compulsion for one to help another here. So it pays to be kind to others.

comments like this can result in a temporary ban you have to understand here all are working without anything financial amount.
totally volunteerly so if you want something contribute your self everything is opensource and if you can’t thn file a feature request so devs can work on.


I had a similar issue with missing icons for some MIME types.
Icons for .iso and .torrent files can be configured like this:

tee /tmp/custom-iso.xml << EOF > /dev/null
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mime-info xmlns="">
<mime-type type="application/x-cd-image">
<generic-icon name="media-optical"/>
tee /tmp/custom-torrent.xml << EOF > /dev/null
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mime-info xmlns="">
<mime-type type="application/x-bittorrent">
<generic-icon name="transmission"/>
sudo xdg-mime install --mode system /tmp/custom-iso.xml
sudo xdg-mime install --mode system /tmp/custom-torrent.xml

Discovered another nice method using an alternative theme:

sudo dnf install papirus-icon-theme
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme "Papirus"
