Description Michael Wardle 2003-02-18 01:13:46 EST
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): 
kdelibs-3.1-7 
kdebase-3.1-7 
redhat-artwork-0.65-1 
 
How reproducible: 
Always 
 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Log in to a KDE session 
     
Actual results: 
Icons along bottom of screen are oversized. 
 
Expected results: 
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.
Comment 2 Sammy 2003-02-18 14:20:38 EST
Panel icons seem to default to 32x32 AND in kcontrol-->Appearance-->icons 
the Panel icon size pulldown menu is inaccessible! 
Comment 3 Sammy 2003-02-18 15:07:57 EST
Furthermore there is no zooming although the icon zooming is enabled. 
Comment 4 Michael Wardle 2003-02-18 17:39:30 EST
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. 
 
Comment 5 Michael Wardle 2003-02-18 17:55:35 EST
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. 
 
Comment 6 Sammy 2003-02-19 09:30:26 EST
I compiled kdebase from source rpm and removed the: 
 
              kdebase-3.1-panelbuttonresize.patch 
 
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 
that size. 
Comment 7 Sammy 2003-02-21 16:08:18 EST
The problem is still present in kdebase-3.1-8. 
Comment 8 Sammy 2003-02-24 10:59:01 EST
Ditto with kdebase-3.1-9....what does the panelbuttonresize patch fix? 
Comment 9 Zack Cerza 2004-07-21 15:32:36 EDT
Does the problem still exist in current versions?
Comment 10 Ngo Than 2004-07-22 06:16:10 EDT
it's fixed in current FC2
