Description Michael Wardle 2003-03-16 23:31:12 UTC
Description of problem: When my Nautilus folder view contains a tar file (extension: .tar MIME type: application/x-tar), the icon representing the file is an ordinary white piece of paper, suggesting the file type is unrecognized. I would expect this file to have an icon that reflects that it is an archive and/or that it can be opened in File Roller. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-desktop-18.104.22.168-3 gnome-themes-2.2-2 nautilus-2.2.1-2 redhat-artwork-0.65-1 Additional info: I am using one of the GNOME themes, I think it is called something like "Clean" or "Simple", however the theme manager crashes, so I can't confirm this. In this theme, the title bar is a plain blue, and folder icons are flat and blue. I don't know whether this also applies to Bluecurve, however I suspect it does.

I retried the theme manager, and it worked. The theme I was using was called "Mist". The "Bluecurve" theme does actually have an appropriate icon.

In Bluecurve this works, and I can also open with File Roller in the menu. However, the Flag-Blue icon theme (used by mist) has no icon for .tar files. Reassigning to gnome-themes.
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2004-10-05 14:06:06 UTC
We won't be creating any icons for the Flat-Blue icon theme, so I'm closing this. If you're interested in this getting fixed, contact the author of the theme.
