Why...why did google do this to us Linux users? Is anyone else irritated by this? I really miss my Manilla/yellow Folders. A while back looked into changing these but lost interest after not finding a simple fix. I don't like the google forums either, they are hard to navigate for me, so partially my fault for not pursuing it further. I'm quite certain I complained to google also but got no reply. Maybe someone can tell me what to do if anything. Don't want complicated fixes that will not stick when Upgrades come through either. I would even consider changing them to Blue, or anything but Black at this point. Hope someone has the story about all this, and some can say whether they are having the same issue?
"black (actually grey) icons on linux are intentional" They are calling them "Grey" lol, mine are not grey, and others have said the same thing, "not grey" lol.
"As we update Chrome for Material Design, the icons are getting flatter and more uniform in their color. The grey of this folder (0x5a5a5a) should be appearing in a lot of places soon. It applies to ChromeOS as well as Linux. Windows and Mac need to have special folder icons for reasons beyond my ability to describe."
Not sure why it says "Status: Fixed" in the Left pane at this site also:
