High resolution vim icon upscaled and pixelated (254.83 KB, image/png)

Description Alberto Ruiz 2013-09-05 13:38:53 UTC
Description of problem:

The Vim icon for the .desktop file has several issues from a visual design point of view:

- The color scheme is completely random, it doesn't follow the upstream branding nor the Tango specification

- The high resolution version is blurry and looks really bad compared to the rest of the icon set of most of other apps


I suggest that the upstream .eps/.pdf[0] file is used to generate all the icons needed. It is far from perfect but it is a lot less problematic than the current one in Fedora.

High resolution vim icon upscaled and pixelated

Comment 11 Alberto Ruiz 2013-09-24 08:48:47 UTC
Check the screenshot attached, we need a better high resolution icon still, that one is upscaled and has some weird pixelated artifacts in the borders.
