Description of problem:
Changing the icon theme from nautilus leads to messed up icons on the desktop
and file manager ("start here" -> "preferences" -> "themes" -> "icon theme"
tab). Most icons (files, directories, etc) show up as a grayish, "curled-paper"
Trying to undo the damage from "preferences" does not work. Exiting gnome,
removing the file "~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/interface/%gconf.xml", and then
restarting X/gnome restores the original icon theme (which look to me like the
stock gnome icons, not the bluecurve icons).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
Actual Results: Wrong icons are displayed
Expected Results: User should be able to switch icon themes
I'm marking this as "high" severity becuase it leaves the desktop with greatly
reduced usability. Since it is not obvious how to fix this problem, many users,
especially new users, will be confused and frustrated.
The Bluecurve theme for icons does not work with nautilus-2.1.x. All it displays
is blank white icons. Changing it back to Gnome, control-center should set it to
gnome not Gnome which is fixed upstream.
I threw in my $0.02 in bug 80853 where this has also been brought up.
A work around is in the GConf editor:
set icon_theme to "gnome" with a little g
Just to clarify for others:
in the run box and go to desktop, gnome, interface and
edit key 'icon_theme' from Gnome to gnome

theme fixer bash script
I figured out the bluecurve icons had the wrong filename; and thus weren't
being picked up by nautilus. It's not a proper fix; but I wrote this lil script
to link the bluecurve icons to the right filenames.
This should work now with the latest redhat-artwork.
I have rebuilt the rawhide redhat-artwork-0.60-1.src.rpm
It fixed the Bulcurve icon issue, but the gnome icons
still have issues due to the capital G in Gnome.
Looks like it still needs some tweaking... :)
Again, just to be a little clearer:
Installing the latest redhat-artwork (redhat-artwork-0.60-1)
fixes the Bluecurve icon problem but not the Gnome icon
(My $0.02 from the other bug marked as duplicate)
If I'm not mistaken when I first went to the icons 'tab'
I believe there were three choices. When I selected one of them
there were only two choices remaining...
After my first selection all the nautilus icons went blank...
Watching closer this time I saw that the three choices were:
gnome was highlighted of course.
When selecting Bluecurve the gnome entry disappeared
and all that remained was:
I would suggest this bug be reopened and the Summary
altered to reflect the changes still needed.
You need latest control-center.
Thankyou, that did the trick.
