Missing icon for "important tag" on mails
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:50:39 EDT
Description of problem:
The icon used to mark a message as important is not present in evolution. A file
with a cross is displayed instead of a red circle with an exclamation mark.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
version released with fc6t1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open evolution
2. Look at the icon at the top on the "marked as important
Showing a white page with a red cross
Should be a circle with an exclamation mark
It looks like the stock_mail-priority-high.png icon is missing from the
gnome-icon-theme package. Verified that this file is missing from upstream CVS
and filed a bug:
Changing component to gnome-icon-theme and reassigning to johnp.
As per the naming spec, this is emblem-important in the emblems context now. A
symlink is created at install time by icon-naming-utils for backward
compatibility with the old name used by evolution.
There is no such symlink on my Rawhide machine.
Discovered that the icon-naming-utils package was not installed.
After installation there is still no such symlink.
I now believe this bug is due to the icon-name-mapping script (from the
icon-naming-utils package) not being run from the 16x16/stock/net directory upon
installation of the gnome-icon-theme package.
The following stanza, which appears in many of the gnome-icon-theme package's
Makefile.am files, invokes the icon-name-mapping script:
(cd $(DESTDIR)$(themedir)/$(size) && $(ICONMAP) -c $(context))
The above stanza is missing from the Makefile.am file located in the
16x16/stock/net directory (former home of the stock_mail-priority-high.png
icon), as well as several other icon directories.
Trying to contact upstream for confirmation.
This has now been fixed upstream.
Turns out the stanza above was missing from the */emblems/Makefile.am files, not
the 16x16/stock/net/Makefile.am file as I thought. I was on the right track, at
