Icon reference in .desktop file contains full path to icon file and extension (.png)
Last modified: 2009-10-30 08:22:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Similar to other system-config*, icon reference in .desktop file contains file extension (.png) which prevents
effectively theming it, e.g. if the used icon theme is based solely on SVGs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Just dropping the extension is fine (i.e. to Icon=system-config-lvm), but
would be even better if the icon name could be changed to something more
general and follow the Icon Naming Guidelines . I'd suggest
Also, as the icon is used in the application itself, it would be nice to look
it up the correct way . GTK has already prepared look-up functions for that,
so the implementation should not be hard. Patch attached to bug #454402 might
The problem is slightly worse than just extension - in this case the .destkop file contains full path to icon (or contained the last time I checked) which prevents theming completely. Correct way is to install the icon into hicolor icon theme and use only icon name (without extension) in the .desktop file.
System-config-lvm is entering maintainance-only mode and whole package will be deprecated. We do not plan active development, only major bugs will be fixed.
Which package will supersede system-config-lwm?
Application that is part of GNOME (if I'm right it is gnome-disk-utility), it does not support lvm yet but that will be fixed soon.
