I have this problems with firefox/chrome/chromium: 1) the iso file icon does not appear (usually an image of a cd) 2) there is that graphic error that makes the image shake ... I made sure that the problem only happens on fedora, trying the same thing on ubuntu and centos. In the demonstration video, I obviously tried chrome -> Sorry for the link, but I don't no other way to show a video.. EDIT:

Hi, that might be related to desktop environment, display server or GPU driver. Update your question with output of inxi -SMGxxxz.

I've set up a VM with F29 Workstation and it seems that Gnome considers ISO icon as expendable...

Anyway, dnf install gnome-icon-theme-extras will install additional icons (including one for disk image files) and resolve your issues.

It's always good to keep system up to date (including BIOS) and switching to modesetting driver might improve your experience (e.g. reduce tearing), so you can give it a try anyway.

First answer:

Hi, there is a couple thighs we could try to make it work better:

Update your BIOS, there's V2.09 available on Lenovo's site.

Install Fedora updates: dnf update --refresh.

If you didn't create any custom configs pertaining GPU in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, you can remove xorg-x11-drv-intel package, and after next reboot system should start using generic modesetting driver. Often it works better then Intel one and is used as default one by some distributions. Run dnf remove xorg-x11-drv-intel to remove it. In case of issues after reboot, you should be able to use Ctrl+Alt+F2, login as root, and reinstall Intel driver: dnf install xorg-x11-drv-intel.

Are you using any custom icon theme or the default Gnome one? Is this icon visible for ISO files in File Manager?

I already update fedora. I use the default gnome icone. In the file manager i view an iso in this wayimage description

Now, before making all these attempts, you must know that I have tried other distros in live and the problem has not occurred. Specifically, I tried centos and ubuntu.

Thanks! but why is this package not installed by default as in other distros?

I don't know why, personally I prefer KDE Plasma and Cinnamon over Gnome because of many user experience decisions making them more handy to me. This package might have been overlooked, report it as a bug on and you should get some answers and a fix for the rest for users.
