Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 191009
Inconsistent ~/Desktop icon
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:45:33 EST
Description of problem:
A while back, I have raised the issue that the ~/Desktop icon should
not have a component from gnome default icon theme.
It is not isometric perspective and it does *NOT* use the Bluecurve
In addition, the Places menu contains a different icon
(which *is* Bluecurve) for the same item (the Desktop directory).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 128725 [details]
It appears the Desktop icon in Nautilus is a combination of the Blueurve folder
icon and the desktop emblem from
/usr/share/icons/gnome/48x48/emblems/emblem-desktop.png and the Desktop icon in
the Places panel menu is the Bluecurve Desktop icon from
As both icon refers to the same entity (the Desktop directory) it would make
sense (and be consistent) to use one icon in both cases (Nautilus and Places)
Makes sense to me, too. Adding to FC6Target tracker.
gnome-panel uses the gnome-fs-desktop icon for the "Desktop" item in the places
menu. That would have to be replaced by the icon+emblem combination used by
nautilus. Note that the same icon is used by the "Show Desktop" applet, but that
is probably fine to change as well
This should probably be fixed by switching all users of this icon to the
icon-naming-spec name "user-desktop"
This bug was originally reported as #183015 more than a year ago. It persists
till today. I wonder would it be possible to actually close it. No activity has
been seen for quite some time.
The icon for 'desktop' in panel is 'user-desktop'.
The emblem for ~/Desktop is 'emblem-desktop'
`gnome-fs-desktop' for backwards compability to versions prior
to icon name spec
