Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 218811
Evolution RPM does not record dependency on gnome-themes for icons
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
Evolution (evolution-2.6.3-1.fc5.5) uses files from the gnome-themes RPM to
provide icons, but the evolution-2.6.3-1.fc5.5 RPM contains no dependency on
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a minimal installation of FC 5, being careful to not install any more of
Gnome than necessary.
2. Install Evolution.
3. Run Evolution.
The Send/Receive, Reply, Forward, etc. buttons in the mail-reading screen will
show a red-X "can't find icon" icon.
Evolution will also produce error messages on stdout and/or stderr.
If you then install gnome-themes, proper icons will appear.
The Evolution icons show show without any additional installation steps.
Please try again with Evolution 126.96.36.199 in Fedora Core 6.
Evolution 2.6.3 is no longer supported.
The bug is also (reappeared?) in F7:
$ rpm -q evolution
$ rpm -q evolution --requires | fgrep theme
gnome-icon-theme >= 1.3.6
Only after installing
$ rpm -q gnome-themes
by hand all those red X icons are replaced with real ones...
Fixed in evolution-2.12.0-5.fc8.
