Description Denny Crane 2008-09-18 10:40:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Firstboot uses a very old icon, has not kept up with the icons released with F7-F9. The icon is antiquated and looks out of place with all the new graphics which are included in the installer.

See top leftish of this image:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora
2. See icon
Actual results:
See old icon.

Expected results:
See modern icon which doesn't stick out like a sore thumb among new graphics.

This image is provided by the fedora-logos package now.  Reassigning.
Comment 2 Nicu Buculei 2008-09-18 11:23:06 EDT
As that is not a logo but the "computer" icon, I think firstboot should use the "Computer" icon from the *default* icon theme (not the ancient Bluecurve).

If, on the other hand, the goal is to have a logo displayed there, please request a proper logo from the Art team (but in my personal opinion, another logo would be overkill, we have enough branding in that screen).
Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2008-09-18 11:30:05 EDT
Nicu, please let me know what icon should be there (attach it to this bugzilla) and I'll fix it in the fedora-logos package.

Well, I'm only going to fix this in rawhide for F10, it doesn't make any sense to do this in earlier builds... thus, I'll use the Echo icon.

I flipped the SVG so that the computer faces to the right, that's how the old icon faced, and I think the firstboot context, it looks better that way. I'll attach the png I generated and if either of you are unhappy, now is the time to say so. :)

Comment 8 Denny Crane 2008-09-18 15:49:05 EDT
Just to clarify, I only attached the "old" (F7-F9) version because the echo icon set is, I believe, only *tentatively* scheduled for F10. I think it was originally scheduled for F9, and maybe even F8?
Comment 9 Nicu Buculei 2008-09-19 02:07:35 EDT
@Nate: no, only for F10 we feel we have a real chance to get it "good enough" and proposed it formally as a feature. Before that it was just included like any other non-default theme.
Comment 10 Denny Crane 2008-09-19 08:20:50 EDT
Okay, cool :-)
Comment 11 Tom "spot" Callaway 2008-09-23 17:40:38 EDT
The firstboot/workstation.png icon in fedora-logos-9.99.4-1.fc10 (now built in rawhide) is the Echo icon, reversed, as I attached here.

It is worth noting that firstboot-1.100-1.fc10 still has a local copy of this icon, so I'm reassigning this bug to firstboot so they can either fix this in their local copy or really use fedora-logos.
Comment 12 Chris Lumens 2008-09-23 18:46:18 EDT
The copy in firstboot is a fallback, should /usr/share/firstboot/themes/fedora-waves/workstation.png not exist.  fedora-waves is provided by fedora-logos, and that's what firstboot uses by default.  The local copy of workstation.png provided by firstboot is that cheesy COM-PU-TER logo I made just to have something as a fallback.  So, kicking this back to fedora-logos.  firstboot will use whatever it provides.
