Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 83557
volume applet looks bad in bluecurve
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:50:42 EDT
If you use the bluecurve icon theme the volume applet look really bad at 48x48.
It looks like the icon is scaled up from 16x16. Other themes look ok.
oh, I thought it was just a dup of bug 82301, if it's a theme bug we should
be able to fix it easily.
Garrett - we need a larger volume icon.
Nah, bug 82301 is about launchers. This one is fine if you change the theme.
the volume applet is using the stock icons:
#define VOLUME_STOCK_MUTE "volume-mute"
#define VOLUME_STOCK_ZERO "volume-zero"
#define VOLUME_STOCK_MIN "volume-min"
#define VOLUME_STOCK_MED "volume-med"
#define VOLUME_STOCK_MAX "volume-max"
data->zero = gtk_widget_render_icon (data->applet, VOLUME_STOCK_ZERO,
data->min = gtk_widget_render_icon (data->applet, VOLUME_STOCK_MIN,
data->med = gtk_widget_render_icon (data->applet, VOLUME_STOCK_MED,
data->max = gtk_widget_render_icon (data->applet, VOLUME_STOCK_MAX,
data->muted = gtk_widget_render_icon (data->applet, VOLUME_STOCK_MUTE,
Okay, this is the third time I'm trying to post to this bug. Bugzilla keeps
eating the comments and giving me errors. (It seems to mostly work fine when I
comment on other bugs, however. Maybe it just doesn't like me today...)
We have three solutions here:
* Fix the volume applet so it doesn't scale the icons
* Make 48x48 versions that just enlarge the space around the 24x24 versions
* Adapt the 48x48 version of the icon for the stock icon theme
Of course, there's also:
* Use SVG for everything
(But that's not an option yet. *grin*)
I *don't* want a 48x48 applet for twiddling my volume!
Bug 83175 seems to be a duplicate of this
(I can't add a comment there)
There are now multiple sizes of the volume indicator in redhat-artwork. The
configuration or the actual code may need to be changed; but artwork is in place.
works in RHL 9 - think it was fixed for 8.0 too.
