After upgrade there is no folder icon in Finder:

enter image description here

Does somebody have problem like this? Could you maybe help me with some advice?

PS. Everything is ok with list view option in Finder.

  • It looks like it only applies to apps that the os x does not know what do with. Open one of those with Open with to test.. Other than that it looks perfectly fine to me. – Ruskes Apr 15 '15 at 22:19

Try killall -KILL Finder in Terminal. Usually clears up graphical glitches.

Try resetting Finder preferences. Run these commands in Terminal:

rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist
killall -KILL Finder

Note that you will have to redo any Finder preferences you had set.

If that doesn't work, follow these steps to reset the Icon Services cache:

sudo find /private/var/folders/ \
-name com.apple.dock.iconcache -exec rm {} \;

sudo find /private/var/folders/ \
-name com.apple.iconservices -exec rm -rf {} \;

sudo rm -rf /Library/Caches/com.apple.iconservices.store

killall -KILL Dock
killall -KILL Finder

After the first command, it will prompt you for a password. Enter your login password.

  • Did you reboot afterwords? Also try resetting Finder preferences. See updated answer. – tubedogg Apr 15 '15 at 21:55
  • Yes, I tried all step-by-step. Maybe there is no such icons on disk? Do you know correct path to them? maybe copy icons form other mac will be good idea? – ipeacocks Apr 15 '15 at 22:07
  • System icons are stored in /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources so unless you somehow managed to muck up that bundle, I doubt they are missing entirely. – tubedogg Apr 15 '15 at 22:13

    Try running the combo updater from here. It should fix any missing file problems. – tubedogg Apr 15 '15 at 22:19
