Evo toolbar icons screenshot
Description of problem:
When running Evolution under KDE the toolbar icons for "Mark for deletion" and
"Mark as Junk" are very similar and easily confused. This causes a noticeable
cognitive pause every time I use them and is very irritating. I've reported this against Oxygen on bugs.kde.org. However a more serious issue is that there seems to be no way of changing the icon set.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Evolution under KDE
Evo uses Oxygen icons for the toolbar. System Settings doesn't seem to be able to change this.
Icon set configurable via System Settings->Appearance->GTK+ Appearance
Evolution under Gnome uses the default icon set, which is fine. I can also change themes with effect on GTK apps. I just can't change the Oxygen icons.
This is all part of the system icon them used, changeable via
(it's not specific to gnome or kde)

do you have bug reference #'s? I'd be happy to help track this upstream.

Although I'm happy with Oxygen in general, I tried changing the icon theme to the default Gnome one, just to test it. Other icons on the desktop change but the Evolution toolbar, which is the only one I actually want to change, stays nailed to Oxygen.

evolution may not notice the change until your session is restarted (yes, that's a bug ... somewhere)

Yes, that worked. The trick is to change the theme to Gnome, log out and in again, then change the theme back to Oxygen. As long as I stay logged in, it's OK.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
