Description Leo 2006-05-08 02:30:26 UTC
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[1] 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):

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)

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-05-08 14:58:30 UTC
Makes sense to me, too.  Adding to FC6Target tracker.

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2006-09-16 04:02:20 UTC
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

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2006-09-26 03:55:22 UTC
This should probably be fixed by switching all users of this icon to the
icon-naming-spec name "user-desktop"

Comment 6 Leo 2007-05-13 10:09:14 UTC
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.

Comment 7 Leo 2007-05-27 14:33:10 UTC
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

This bug was filled against an old Fedora version (FC5) ans since we changed the
default icon theme from Bluecurve to Mist is no longer relevant.
