Description Dale R. Worley 2006-12-07 12:25:16 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):


How reproducible:


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.
Actual results:

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.

Expected results:

The Evolution icons show show without any additional installation steps.

Please try again with Evolution in Fedora Core 6.

Evolution 2.6.3 is no longer supported.
Comment 2 Stefan Becker 2007-06-14 11:22:54 EDT
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.
