Description Ian Laurie 2005-09-30 20:40:57 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050921 Red Hat/1.7.12-

Description of problem:
gnome-icon-theme-1.0.5-2.E replaces many traditional Gnome icons with Bluecurve icons.  If people want to run with Bluecurve icons they would use the Bluecurve icon theme.  People who choose the Gnome icon theme expect Gnome icons.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gnome-icon-theme-1.0.5-2.E
2. Select the Gnome icon theme

Actual Results:  Many icons, including some really obvious ones like the "user's home" and "trash can", both really obvious as they sit on the desktop, are now Bluecurve icons instead of traditional Gnome icons.

Expected Results:  If you select the Gnome icon theme you should get Gnome icons, even if some people in Red Hat's artwork department don't like them.  That is why you have icon theme choices, because not everyon has the same taste.  Gnome should mean "Gnome", not "half Gnome and Half Bluecurve".

Additional info:

I like and use Bluecurve (on my Fedora box) but I also like and use Gnome.  This choice has now been removed.  Unfortunately they are very different and a mixture of them on the same desktop creates a horrible clash.  

I am backdating to the previous package immediately, and classing this update as a bug because it is so misconceived

Sorry, we can't reverse these changes.  It'd be great to get the bluecurve icons
done in the GNOME style, though!
