Title says all: I have no icons in the file selection dialogs of Qt applications. I'm using Fedora 24 workstation with Gnome. Here's a picture of the issue (taken from QtCreator, but it's been the same for every Qt application I've tried):

You can see folder icons are missing, and it's the same for file icons (only the "Computer" icon is showing up). How can I solve this? Thanks in advance.

Qgnomeplatform only supports adwaita theme AFAIK. I'd install a kde/plasma icon theme (breeze or oxygen) as fallback. I'm just guessing, not a gnome user.

Thanks for your answer. I've installed Breeze icon theme, but it doesn't help.

Check the content of QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE


Try setting it to something different.

QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=adwaita <qtapp>

QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE isn't set. Setting it like you suggested had no effect.
