Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80336
The Bluecurve icon theme has blurry menu icons
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:49:16 EDT
Description of problem: When the Bluecurve icon theme is used, the icons in the
main menu that are specific to the Bluecurve theme are blurry. The gnome icon
theme does not have this problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdk-pixbuf-0.18.0-5 (and associated packages).
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use Bluecurve icon theme.
2.Bluecurve-specific icons become blurry.
Icon were blurry/ out-of-focus.
Icons would be correct focus

package (libpng. libgnomecanvas, nautilus?). The problem is definitely not
present with the "gnome icon theme."

I am using a Compaq P920 Monitor (Horizontal 30-110 kHz Vertical 50-160 Pixel
Clock ~ 280 MHz) with an ATI FireGL 2 graphics card at 1600x1200 resolution. I
am using the default font (Sans) with best shapes, grayscale smoothing, and
medium hinting. I do not think that the bluriness is related to the graphics
display/X per se, as all other icon themes are "in focus" as expected. Even the
icons that are not supplied by the Bluecurve icon theme are sharp when the
Bluecurve theme is used (e.g. the main menu icons). It is almost as if the icons
being used are the 16x16 or 32x32 icons instead of the 48x48 or 64x64 (I think
these are the correct values) that are normally used, and thus when enlarged are
This should have been fixed for a while now.
