Bug Description

In Karmic Koala, Nautilus now show custom icons for folders in the Home directory such as "Music" "Videos" "Documents". However, it doesn't pick up on the icon for Downloads. This is a bit of an incomplete experience as you can see from the attached screenshot.

Is there a downloads folder present after a default installation? iirc there is not which would invalidate this bug/papercut

.config/user-dirs.dirs shows XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Desktop" so I do not think there is a Downloads folder. This was probably created due to a bug in transmission (#338046) which has been fixed.

Sorry, but why do you have XDG folders with icons? have you got a particular icon theme?

I'm using elementary icons. They take advantage of the freedesktop
naming spec that XDG uses.

Reading comment 3, note for the record :
Create a dedicated directory for XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR (it can't be the Desktop anymore)
