Icons for application has no colour

Is the icons for the applications not coloured because they need to be authentified or registred somehow.

I remembering when I started to use Fedora that I read why the Icons are colourless but I have forgotten and can find it in the Gnome Help.

Can somebody please give me a quick fix :nerd_face:

Do you have High Contrast icons enabled? See Gnome Tweaks:


@voodooviking @mattdm the highcontrast is in settings (F35)
:upside_down_face: In tweaks is also a high contrast, but that is different.

Gnome tweaks doesn’t appear when I search in the settings. How to enter the apperance in Fedora 34 ?

I am in F34 where should I find the appereance. I just did an install of extensions but still no Gnome tweak

gnome-tweaks is a package that needs installed.

Found this `Tweaks and Extentions

Fedora 34 Workstation comes with GNOME as the default Desktop Environment. We can do various configurations of GNOME by using Tweaks and Extensions, like changing themes, changing buttons in the window dialog, and many more.

Open your terminal and run this command to install GNOME Tweaks.`
Tweaks and Extentions

$ sudo dnf install gnome-tweaks

$ sudo dnf install gnome-extensions-app

When I launch Gnome Tweaks from software I get a notification that it is movet to Gnome extensions or Flathub.

I did also install Gnome extensions and search it at Flathub.

But it appears after clicking Continue.

No it seems like the settings are default and it is not set as Highlight

Tweaks is not a Gnome extension.
do sudo dnf install tweaks
