Files with unknown MIME type do not display emblem icons
- Nightly flatpak: Yes
- Other: Arch Linux (version 3.32.1-1); Ubuntu 18.04 (version 1:3.26.4-0)
Steps to reproduce
- Install an extension that provides emblems (I tested using a small test project and nautilus-dropbox.
- Create a file full of
NULcharacters with no extension (e.g.
dd bs=4M count=10 if=/dev/zero of=/home/colin/Dropbox/noext). The fact that it's
NULis actually significant--this guarantees that the MIME type will not be determinable.
- Find the file in nautilus.
Unlike other files, the newly-created one will not have an emblem.
Ideally, it would have an emblem.
The issue seems to be in
nautilus_file_get_icon in the branch that is activated when
nautilus_icon_info_is_fallback (icon ) returns true. I have a patch that I will submit shortly, but I figured I would create a proper ticket for discussion/documentation.
