Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84511
kde panel (kicker) icons are oversized
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:20 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading to KDE and redhat-artwork packages from Raw Hide today, the icons on the
KDE panel at the bottom of the screen are larger than they previously were, making them quite
fuzzy. It's almost as if the icons are being permanently "zoomed"
(see Panel Settings->Appearance).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to a KDE session
Icons along bottom of screen are oversized.
Icons along bottom are their normal size (somewhat smaller).
The default small icon size is now set to 20x20. To set the icon size to 16x16
as previously, you could do it in kcontrol->Appearance->Icons.
Panel icons seem to default to 32x32 AND in kcontrol-->Appearance-->icons
the Panel icon size pulldown menu is inaccessible!
Furthermore there is no zooming although the icon zooming is enabled.
This is still a bug, however, as the icons look terrible at this new size. This could partly
be something fixable by the redhat-artwork package, however the other KDE themes would
still look bad at this size.
I have filed bug 84561 to deal with the inability to change the default icon size.
In case your panel's configuration is different from mine, try adding launchers for standard
KDE programs such as konsole, konqueror, kmail, and kate. This is done by right-clicking on
the panel, Add->Application Button.
Notice the very blurry edges.
I compiled kdebase from source rpm and removed the:
which results in a working panel with 32 point icons and working zooming. I guess
this patch needs to be modified. By the way, the icons were 48x48 and stuck at
The problem is still present in kdebase-3.1-8.
Ditto with kdebase-3.1-9....what does the panelbuttonresize patch fix?
Does the problem still exist in current versions?
it's fixed in current FC2
