[Bug 1216788] Re: Files previously shown with a gear icon (like #!/usr/bin/python) are now shown as text files


Also can you state what icon theme you are using. To find this out go to
the menu select prefrences and customize look and feel. If it says
lubuntu which is the default icon theme for lubuntu then lxde icon theme
is not the the right package.

If it says nuovext2.0 then lxde-icon-theme will be the correct pacakge.
I just installed lxde-icon-theme which is an updated version of
nuovext2.0 and it does look like python files.

In the window that shows your icon theme if you change it does this
problem go away. For me in utopic and the default lubuntu icon theme it
changes to a python logo.

Bug description:
  I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 dev with shared-mime-info 1.1-0ubuntu4. For a few days after upgrading the system I have noticed that python-files aren't shown as executable files anymore. I have already opened a bug report on upstream for this: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68494
  But I'm not sure if this is really a bug in shared-mime-info because after downgrading shared-mime-info, PCManFM and libfm to the versions from Ubuntu 13.04 (libfm-data, libfm-gtk-bin, libfm-gtk-data, libfm-gtk3, libfm3, pcmanfm, shared-mime-info) and rebooting the system the problem still exists.
