Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 204739
Bluecurve icon theme needs update for new icon locations
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:51:01 EDT
Description of problem:
The location of some common icons has changed in the current "GNOME"
development branch. Consequently, although "Bluecurve" is chosen as
desktop theme, concerned applications do not use "Bluecurve" icons
which actually exist but do fall back to stock "GNOME" icons. In
particular "GNOME" icons of "stock_volume-*.png" and of "trashcan_*.png"
are used instead of their existing "Bluecurve" counterparts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to "GNOME" session.
2. Set desktop icon theme to "Bluecurve"
Stock "GNOME" icons are used where "Bluecurve" icons exist.
A "Bluecurve" icon is used unless its actually missing from the theme.
As part of the official "Fedora" artwork package, the "Bluecurve"
theme should be updated to ensure proper function with current "GNOME"
versions, even if development effort is focusing on the new "Echo"
Since we are not going to get Echo into FC6, we need to do at least some
minimal coverage improvement for Bluecurve, by creating links for the icon-naming
As far as I understand, "Bluecurve" will be around for quite a while
and probably be the default theme of upcoming "RHEL5". Why "minimal"
coverage improvement then?
Should be improved a lot in redhat-artwork-5.0.5-1.fc6.
If you see specific problems with the coverage in that package, please
file individual bugs.
