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

fedora 36 gnome 42.3

  1. icons / thumbnails for .iso & .torrent files do not show no more.
    the 2 different icons which depicted an .iso file & a torrent file earlier are now replaced by a single icon for both file types & that is a blank page with the upper right corner folded.

  2. settings > accessibility > sound keys the slider is set to on so that when i press the cap lock / num lock key there is a beep sound but after a reboot / a logout & login there is no beep on pressing the caps lock / num lock keys while in settings, the slider is still set as on.

Which icon theme are you using?

That is, Regression: 'Sound keys' a11y feature doesn't work on Wayland session start until re-enabled (#1796) · Issues · GNOME / mutter · GitLab

It appears to work on X11 if you’d want to try that.

naaah…i’ll stick with wayland.

Please split this into a new topic for the clam action issue.



any ideas to get the icons for iso & torrent files like in fedora 35?
i never change the default font / theme on any operating system ever.
if fedora 35 has the same default theme as fedora 36 then it could qualify as a missing feature, right?

I see the same icons for .torrent and iso files.

There’s also an old bug for Adwaita, Add an icon for iso files (#72) · Issues · GNOME / adwaita-icon-theme · GitLab

I do see icons for both if I switch to the papirus dark icon theme.

& that is my grievance, the exact same icon for isos & torrents :


this was not the case with fedora 35.

why do i need to switch the theme for basic file icons?

I see the same thing on Fedora 35 Workstation with a fresh installation in a VM. Did you have any additional applications installed or associated with iso or torrent files?

Above @grumpey mentioned that the Advita-Icon-Theme had/has a problem. So if you don’t want to change Theme you might have to live with this?!

I changed the icons with tweaks to advita and i do have the same problem. Seams with fedora the bug was not solved yet.


Just an idea from my side, have you tried to open a torrent file with Transmission and or change the default App for .torrent ?

none whatsoever.

the same blank icon for 2 different file types makes it difficult to distinguish between the 2.

i guess i will.

so changing the theme does not fix nothing right?

precisely my point.


transmission is the only torrent software i have.

You have to keep observing the link on gitlab (Gnome) to see if there is a change in the future.

Alternative/Workaround: look for an alternative icon theme.

is gnome being doled out half-baked :roll_eyes:

In this and many of your other posts it seems you are being deliberately derogatory toward several things on fedora.

The Fedora Code of Conduct gives guidelines as to how members of this forum should act and being deliberately and continuously negative is not included in those standards.

Please refrain from the derogatory comments. If you have a specific issue feel free to describe it and ask for assistance in a friendly manner.

My grandparents taught me that “if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing!” was the best policy.


you can contribute how you want it to be

I agree with @computersavvy , that’s not way how things could be changed and if you have the knowledge to contribute on a qualified and sound base please do it, otherwise you have to wait until the engaged Fedora community ,and they are one of the best community under Linux, will patch wrong things. I always have seen, that they are doing their best and they deliver fast an excellent OS. Don’t ride a dead horse.

I just link to my other rant:
