Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 498415
spinner icon is mangled
Last modified: 2009-07-21 21:01:02 EDT
I forget exactly what step it was at, but at some point when installing some new software, gpk-application tried to show a spinner image in the lower left corner of the window, except that it sliced up the base png with the wrong dimensions and so it came out like a TV with broken vertical hold. Probably it got a 24x24 icon and thought it was 22x22, or vice versa?
(A quick check shows that this wasn't any of the icons in /usr/share/gnome-packagekit/icons/hicolor/*/animations/... it was the standard OS X-like spinner. Maybe it's accidentally getting a fallback stock icon?)

"Getting information" while installing a package.
I see this same behavior when PackageKit is "thinking" and displaying the circular animation. All other animations seem normal and smooth. I'm running the latest x86_64 rawhide.

Here is a silly hack to fix this problem for the process-working icon. But the same problem can occur for any of the other animated icons as well, depending on how the symbolic icon sizes are set by the gtk theme.
There is no way to fix this properly, unless we can attach the rows/cols information as additional metadata to the icon.

Add a silly hack until we get some metadata about animated icon sizes
