Screenshot of oversized directory icon in nautlius with Fedora icon theme

Description of problem:

In fc22, I am observing unreasonably oversized directory icons (256x256?) in nautilus, much bigger than file icons (64x64?).

Trying to investigate seems to indicate this issue could be related to the icon theme being used. I am observing this behavior when using the "Fedora" icon theme, but not when using the "gnome" icon theme.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always, on several machines.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in into an xfce-desktop
2. create a sample directory and populate it:
# mkdir Test
# touch Test/file.txt
# mkdir Test/subfolder
3. launch nautilus and navigate into the "Test" directory

Use the xfce-theme-manager to change the icon theme.

Actual results:
- With the Fedora icon theme, "subfolder" is being displayed with a huge icon (256x256?), while "file.txt" is being displayed with a "normal-sized" icon (64x64?)
- With the Gnome icon theme, both "subfolder" and "file.txt" are being displayed at the same size (64x64?)
- The behavior of other icon themes varies.

Expected results:
All icons being displayed with the same, "reasonable" size.

Additional info:
- f21 did not expose this behavior.
- Using nautilus's "size slider" with the Fedora icon theme, seems to resize "file" icons, but keeps "directory" icons constantly "huge"

gtk+ changed at some point and now respect sizes of the theme, which makes gtk returning a different size of what nautilus ask for.

upstream report:

So this can only be fixed in nautilus or is it possible to patch the icon theme?

The actual good fix would be in the theme, but nautilus should manage it gracefully anyway.

Fixed upstream

> Fixed upstream

Could you please point me to the corresponding upstream bug fix and to the corresponding Fedora packages containing these fixed packages?

AFAIS, this bug is still present in Fedora 22 and 23.

Comment 6 Ricardo Arguello 2015-09-21 04:23:29 UTC
Upstream bug https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=749969 was resolved.

Comment 7 Ralf Corsepius 2015-09-21 04:36:35 UTC
Reopening. Bug is NOT fixed in Fedora.

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 14:14:15 UTC
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
