Absolute icon path in gucharmap desktop file breaks themeability
Last modified: 2008-02-05 12:20:20 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading to the latest gucharmap package, GNOME menu item
"Applications > Accessories > Character Map" sports a stock GNOME
icon even though the chosen icon theme is Bluecurve.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to gucharmap-2.21.3-1.fc9.
2. Set icon theme to Bluecurve.
Menu item "Applications > Accessories > Character Map" uses a stock
Menu item "Applications > Accessories > Character Map" uses a suitable
Bluecurve icon [as it did before].
This used to work for earlier versions of the gucharmap package.
The reason for the current misbehaviour is an absolute icon path
in the corresponding desktop file gnome-gucharmap.desktop. By
to "Icon=gucharmap.png", the correct behaviour is restored. Please
change gnome-gucharmap.desktop accordingly.
Icon=gucharmap.png is verboten according to the latest desktop-file-utils, which
is why I changed it in the first place. If somebody wants to change it to
Icon=gucharmap without the extension, that is fine with me.
Macht nichts: "Icon=gucharmap" works equally well. Please go ahead ..
Still broken in gucharmap-2.21.5-1.fc9.
Please file an upstream bug and attach the patch there. Thanks
Upstream bug report: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=509718
Upstream has changed "Icon=gucharmap.png" to "Icon=gucharmap". This
should prevent your sed transformation from inserting an absolute
path, right? I suppose the next round of gucharmap-2.21.x will build
Yes, looks fixed to me, modulo conversion to an icon-naming-spec standard name,
but thats an upstream issue.
