Description louisgtwo 2002-12-30 20:59:31 UTC
icons for Log Out and Lock Screen looks very fuzzy, expecially if you drag them
onto the panel. Many more icons on the gnome menu look fuzzy to.

Comment 2 louisgtwo 2003-01-01 19:05:32 UTC
Bug 80366 has nothing to do with this bug. I don't get it.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-13 04:48:45 UTC
I'm pretty sure the bug is a dup, Bill must have just typed the wrong number.

Alex - Kenneth thought the icons from the icon theme were fuzzy 
and /usr/share/pixmaps icons were not. I didn't verify. Maybe we are picking 
the wrong sizes?

Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2003-01-14 14:25:44 UTC
There are two problems
a) GnomeIconTheme picked 16x16 instead of 32x32 when looking up a 20x20 icon.
I've checked in a fix to libgnomeui HEAD that makes it never scale up unless it
has to.

b) we still have prescaled icons in the Bluecurve theme, and the
X-GNOME-AlreadyScaled=true hack doesn't work anymore.

Comment 5 Kenneth Rohde Christiansen 2003-01-14 14:40:12 UTC
I installed cvs libgnomeui and removed the X-GNOME-AlreadyScaled=true lines from
Bluecurve/index.theme - now everything works. Thanks Alex!

Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-15 00:33:55 UTC
It's not as bad now but Garrett thinks we are still e.g. scaling the menu icons
from 32x32 instead of 48x48.

IMO we should:
 - put back the Makefile stuff to do scaling
 - remove any scaled icons that are checked in to CVS
 - restore the X-GNOME-AlreadyScaled hack, or do the automated 
   Makefile scaling to all sizes we use.

Comment 7 Alexander Larsson 2003-01-15 09:34:25 UTC
Why do you think we need the prescaled icons? What requires them?

Comment 8 Alexander Larsson 2003-01-15 09:38:57 UTC
Btw. Yes, we do currently scale down the 32x32 icon.

Comment 9 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-15 14:21:20 UTC
KDE required the scaled icons in 8.0. It may no longer require them, then 
we can just kill them, but so far no one has *verified* that KDE no longer 
requires them.

Comment 10 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-15 14:26:02 UTC
Let's do this:
 - remove the prescaled icons from CVS
 - I'll test KDE for breakage
 - we can add the autoscaler if required

Comment 11 Alexander Larsson 2003-01-15 18:11:27 UTC
Good plan. In fact I'm already working on the patch to fix KDE scaling (which
seems to be existing, but buggy).

Comment 12 Garrett LeSage 2003-07-31 16:35:46 UTC
Multiple sizes of the icons are now provided. I checked in the sheets and
changed the config file for the app icons yesterday. For stock icons (which are
not in KDE, yet), there are already a few sizes as well. I plan on implementing
more sizes for the filesystem and mimetype icons soon.
