Description Mark Eggers 2004-03-12 19:54:26 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
Application and action icons are not found for new applications by KDE
after compiling and installing the new KDE application.


Qt: 3.3.1
KDE: 3.2.1-0.1 Red Hat


1. Download the kpovmodeler source (KPovModeler 1.0)
2. Configure (./configure)
3. compile (make)
4. install (make install).
5. execute program (kpovmodeler)

None of the action icons will be present.  The icon place will be
filled in by a blank document icon.

Make install places the icons for the application in:


There are hicolor (16x16/actions, 22x22/actions) and locolor
(16x16/actions) icons.

Copying these icons into /usr/share/icons/hicolor and
/usr/share/icons/locolor does not solve the problem when using the
crystalsvg icon theme even though Inherits=hicolor is present in the
index.theme file for crystalsvg.


Copy all icons to the appropriate subfolder of the active theme.

Of course, this workaround is messy, especially when it comes time to
upgrade the applications.


a) Icons to be placed in the proper location on make install
b) Icon inheritance to work so that only one copy need be made

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the kpovmodeler source (KPovModeler 1.0)
2. Configure (./configure)
3. compile (make)
4. install (make install).
5. execute program (kpovmodeler)

Actual Results:  Icons will not be visible for the actions in
kpovmodeler.  kxmleditor has similar issues.

Expected Results:  Icons should be present for all actions in kpovmodeler.

Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.


NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.

Comment 2 John Thacker 2006-10-25 20:14:42 UTC
Closed per above message and lack of response.  Note that FC1 and FC2 are not even
supported by Fedora Legacy anymore.
