Description of problem:
After the upgrade from FC1 to FC2 I noted that the crystal
icons in my k-menu (for Accessories/Graphics/...) are
missing (they are replaced by some gnome icons). This
looks really ugly! Please fix.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Gerald Teschl 2004-06-03 05:34:07 EDT
Still here with kdebase-3.2.2-4 and kdelibs-3.2.2-6
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2004-06-04 07:02:45 EDT
i'm still working on it ;-)
Comment 3 Gerald Teschl 2004-07-26 10:14:53 EDT
I just looked at the differences between FC1 and FC2

KDE in FC1 (kdebase-3.2.2-0.1) does not use the redhat menues,
it uses the KDE-*.directory files.
KDE in FC2 uses the redhat *.directory files (and not the
kde-*.directory) files. Moreover, since the Redhat-*.icons
are not present in the crystal icon set, it uses those from
hicolor. Hoever, the new gnome-icon-theme installs everything into
/usr/share/icons/hicolor (rather than /usr/share/icons/gnome) and
hence kde picks those.

Comment 4 Gerald Teschl 2004-11-10 14:20:26 EST
Still present in fc3 kde 3.3.1
Comment 6 Petr Rockai 2005-02-15 09:26:23 EST
This is a somewhat more fundamental problem with fedora/rh settings in kde.  
Since the KDE menu is built from /etc/xdg/menus and there are no corresponding 
icons at all in crystal for the Icon=redhat-* entries, they are, as Gerald 
pointed out, substituted from bluecurve(?). The solution (which i will 
implement ASAP) is to symlink the appropriate crystal package_ icons into 
redhat- icons, so kiconloader can find those versions. 
Comment 8 Ngo Than 2005-02-15 10:22:01 EST
yes, symlinking the appropriate crystal package icons into redhat icons
is a just a workaround. I think, a clean solution would be that we have to define
a common icon name for that or perhaps overtake the icon name from KDE.
Then changing the item "Icon=..." in all the desktop files in
/usr/share/desktop-directories/, add symlinks in bluecurve icons theme
Comment 10 Petr Rockai 2005-02-16 05:33:45 EST
Ok, i looked into the issue some more. In bluecurve, the redhat-*.png icons are 
just symlinks to real icons as well, so adding similar symlinks to crystal 
shouldn't be a problem, really. What however is more of a problem is to find 
corresponding icons in crystal... Going to do so now. 
Comment 11 Petr Rockai 2005-02-22 10:43:23 EST
Should be fixed. Please report omissions in a new bugreport if you still find     
some. Thanks.
