Crystal SVG is a KDE 3 icon theme, KDE 3 did not use the freedesktop.org 
icon-naming-spec. The current version comes from the KDE 4 kdeartwork, but it 
still uses the KDE 3 naming. Its primary purpose is making KDE 3 applications 
Comment 2 Ralf Kleineisel 2008-04-18 06:09:38 EDT
If Crystal SVG exists only for backward compatibility it should be excluded from
the list of icon themes in the KDE 4 system settings dialog. From the list in
system settings it is impossible to decide which ones are fully KDE 4 compatible
and which ones are not.
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-18 06:16:46 EDT
There's no way to programmatically distinguish a KDE 3 icon theme from an 
icon-naming-spec one, KDE 3 follows the icon theme spec, just not the icon 
naming spec, so the icon theme is entirely valid, it just doesn't contain the 
expected icons.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-04-18 08:08:14 EDT
Ralf, I agree with much of what you have to say, and it would be nice to see 
crystalsvg fixed for modern icon theming.  That said, reporting it here, in 
fedora, isn't the best way to help make that happen, but doing so upstream at 
bugs.kde.org *is*.

Another slighly hackish thing we could do in the meantime, would be to make 
crystalsvg Inherits from something we know is compliant, like maybe oxygen.
