Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 331951
'gconf-editor' uses 'GNOME' folder icon even when 'Bluecurve' theme is chosen
Last modified: 2009-06-10 04:38:14 EDT
Description of problem:
The 'gconf-editor' utility uses the stock 'GNOME' folder icon in the
folder pane, even when 'Bluecurve' is the active icon theme.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set icon theme to 'Bluecurve'.
2. Launch 'gconf-editor'.
The stock 'GNOME' folder icon is visible in the folder pane.
The corresponding [and existing] 'Bluecurve' icon is used.
Might be a bug in 'gconf-editor' [2.20.0-1.fc8] itself, the folder icon
does not change for other themes either.

doesn't happen again.
Still broken for bluecurve-icon-theme-8.0.1-1.fc9.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Theming is ok with gconf-editor-2.23.91-1.fc10 but still broken with
not sure if this is related, but applying an icon theme that works great on RHEL 5.2 does not work 100% on fedora 9 (both with latest updates). i.e. the folder icon does not update, whereas the zipped file icon does.
(In reply to comment #7)
No, it is not. Old icon themes work less well with every new GNOME release because of changing icon naming specs of the GNOME default theme.
It seems that pre-2.24 versions of gconf-editor, the folder icon was addressed by the application using an absolute icon path whereas the latest 2.24 version appears to have dropped the path prefix making it behave correctly now.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
