Notice to Xfce SIG, FYI.

Comment 2 Raphael Groner 2014-10-31 17:50:22 UTC
Sorry, confused the base themes.

You should add gnome to Inherits in index.theme, for reference take a look at elementary-xfce:

elementary-xfce]$ grep Inherits index.theme 

oxygen]$ grep Inherits index.theme

Work around:

# sed -i s-hicolor-Fedora,hicolor- /usr/share/icons/oxygen/index.theme

Comment 5 Raphael Groner 2014-10-31 20:01:48 UTC
We may use gtk-fallback-icon-theme in xfsettingsd and a forced dependency to a theme like Fedora-icon-theme or Adwaita.

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2014-11-11 18:03:49 UTC
Hrm, I found

which suggests that setting is deprecated and ignored in recent gtk3 releases, so that workaround may not work (probably worth testing and verifying though)

Comment 7 Kevin Fenzi 2014-11-15 20:15:25 UTC
Yeah, testing would be great if someone could do that. ;) 

I'm not sure I will have time to do so anytime soon...

Comment 8 Raphael Groner 2015-01-30 20:49:56 UTC
This is also true for lxqt and Fedora 21. Any ideas for a goable work-around?

GTK+ 3 now hardcodes the fallback to the GNOME icon theme. For GTK+ 2, use the gtk-fallback-icon-theme xsetting. Oxygen will not inherit from the GNOME or Fedora icon theme, it does not make sense outside of GTK+ applications.

Comment 11 Kevin Fenzi 2015-02-25 20:15:30 UTC
So, I am confused what you want me to do here. 

(BTW, please never clone bugs, it just makes everything confusing IMHO). 

I fixed gigolo. There's another bug for yumex. 

Can you file bugs on any others you see and we close this one?

Comment 12 Raphael Groner 2015-02-25 21:59:09 UTC
Maybe Yumex is fixed in the upcoming dnf version.
