Description Vladimir Benes 2012-05-18 15:12:22 EDT
kcolorchooser, kmag2, kmousetool, kmouth, kolourpaint, ksig and ksnapshot have ugly icons in gnome-shell menu
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2012-05-21 11:11:51 EDT
the problem is that kde upstream doesn't have vector icon (svg) for this app. If our design-team could create such missing vector icons i can commit it to kde upstreams,
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2012-10-22 11:23:51 EDT
please reopen it again if our design-team could provide such missing vector icons
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2012-10-23 16:07:42 EDT
[notting@nostromo: ~/prog/rpms/oxygen-icon-theme/oxygen-icons-4.9.1]$ find . -name kcolor*
[notting@nostromo: ~/prog/rpms/oxygen-icon-theme/oxygen-icons-4.9.1]$ find . -name kmag*

This certainly seems like something that could be solved in packaging - is there something wrong with these svgs?
Comment 5 Daniel Vrátil 2012-12-11 10:20:35 EST
The problem with the SVGs is that they are .svgz (don't know why yours are extracted), which GNOME Shell apparently does not support - see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=655403. This can be easily fixed by ungzipping the icons when packaging the oxygen-icons-theme (tested locally).

However kcachegrind, kcoloredit, kfilereplace, kmousetool, kmouth, kolourpaint, ksig and kuiviewer don't have vector icons at all. We either have to live with the small bitmaps or we have to somehow make them ourselves (and idea who might be able to do so?)

Unless there is someone who creates mentioned missing icons in SVG then there is nothing we can do.
