Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 805395
some xfc4 icons not shown after F17 alpha gnome/xfce install
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:04:54 EST
Description of problem:
After doing an install from the Fedora 17 Alpha DVD, with both the gnome and xfce desktop environments selected, some of the icons were missing from the panels and the menus.
For example, the icon for Terminal was not shown, although space for it was reserved, and the Terminal was started when clicked upon.
I remedied this by running Settings -> Appearance, where I noticed that none of the 5 settings were highlighted on the "Icons" tab. Selecting one of them has fixed the problem.
By the way, this was not a problem when installing from the xfce Live CD.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 17 Alpha, installed from DVD
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 17 Alpha from the DVD, with both gnome and xfce desktop environments selected.
Some xfce panel and menu icons, such as that for Terminal, are blank.
All icons present.
Problem can be resolved by choosing an Icon setting in the Appearance settings, so it seems to be just a problem of the initial state after installation.
Strange. Will see if I can track down whats happening here.
Is/was "Fedora" one of the options there? or can you list out which ones are showing as available there?

Screen dump of "appearances -> icons" window.
This window had none of these five choices selected when I opened it initially.
If I remember right, the problem of missing icons went away immediately upon selecting GNOME.
Christoph: Did "Fedora" icon theme go away? Should we switch default to "GNOME" ?
No, it's still there. fedora-icon-theme is just some Fedora icons plus the mist theme from GNOME.
As we patch Xfce to use Fedora by default, I think we should add it to the xfce-desktop group in comps. This is better than adding a hard dependency somewhere. I think 'default' should be sufficient as I don't want to make it 'mandatory'.
