Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2005-07-05 05:02:09 EDT
Menu item appears OK in gnome here (on the Applications->Internet menu). Which
desktop are you using?
Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2005-07-05 05:19:32 EDT
Also, and this may be obvious but I have to ask: do you have the bittorrent-gui
package installed?
Comment 3 Axon 2005-07-05 06:09:36 EDT
I'm using GNOME desktop with the bittorrent-gui package installed. If it is any
help, I also have the LIVNA and Mono NRPMS YUM repos installed although I'm
fairly sure my packages are getting installed from Fedora extras.

I can provide screenshots if that is helpful.
Comment 4 Paul Howarth 2005-07-05 06:21:14 EDT
If you do a "rpm -qi bittorrent-gui" you can check the source of the package.
The one in extras for FC4 is version "4.0.2", release "1.fc4", and the build
host was "extras64".

There should be a file:
the presence of this file should result in there being a menu item available in
all freedesktop.org-aware desktops.

Sometimes (though I haven't been able to reproduce this) the menu item doesn't
appear until you've logged out and back in again after installing
bittorrent-gui. Did you only just install it?
Comment 5 Axon 2005-07-05 15:36:09 EDT
Please ignore: you were correct, restarting Gnome fixes this issue. Apologies
for wasting your time.
Comment 6 Paul Howarth 2005-07-07 04:51:37 EDT
I'll keep my eyes open for ways of getting the icon to appear without restarting
gnome, but in the meantime I'll close the bug.
Comment 7 Mark McLoughlin 2005-07-12 07:26:04 EDT


Ricardo: two questions, please:

  1) Did the menu item appear in the panel, but without an icon? Or did the
     menu item not appear in the panel at all?

  2) Does/did /usr/share/pixmaps/icon-theme.cache exist? If so, does removing
     that file fix the problem?
Comment 8 Axon 2005-07-12 07:38:00 EDT
> Did the menu item appear in the panel, but without an icon?

Yes :)

> Does/did /usr/share/pixmaps/icon-theme.cache exist?

Don't know: I'll try and re-install it tonight and check.
Comment 9 Mark McLoughlin 2005-07-13 09:42:01 EDT
So, this turned out to be a genuine bug with GtkIconTheme. See:


This should be fixed upstream soon and in rawhide when we get a new release.

*** Bug 162765 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 11 Paul Howarth 2005-07-13 10:05:55 EDT
I've moved the icon to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps in cvs anyway. This
will show up in rawhide sometime after the extras build system starts working
again; FC3 and FC4 packages will come along once upstream releases a new
non-beta version, unless someone can persuade me that 4.1.x is stable enough for
the masses :-)
