Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 860313
Please replace Rodent with a current and maintained theme.
Last modified: 2013-12-21 19:53:38 EST
Description of problem: Rodent icon theme is unmaintained, looks quite inconsistent (it inherits Mist and 'gnome' and adds some icons on top) and doesn't supply what Xfce 4.10 needs (namely 'system-suspend' and 'system-hibernate' icons).
Xfce4-icon-theme could therefore ship elementary-xfce instead ( https://github.com/shimmerproject/elementary-xfce/downloads ) which doesn't have none of the aforementioned issues.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.4.3-7.fc18 and earlier.
Steps to Reproduce:
Ops, sorry. I see it's an upstream bug. I'll file it at xfce.bugzilla.org
I opened https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9330 but since no package requires xfce4-icon-theme in Fedora then maybe the best thing to do would be to package elementary-xfce and use it in the Xfce spin.
It's just less bureaucracy for everyone involved.
I wonder what exactly do you expect us to do. We are not using the Rodent icon theme by default, we are using the Fedora icon theme which is basically Mist plus Fedora icons.
Kevin, should we downgrade xfce4-icon-theme from "default" to "optional" in comps?
Hi Christoph, sorry for this bug report. As you can see from the second post it's an upstream issue and even there it's questionable if there should still be an xfce4-icon-theme.
But the F18 spin is actually set to use Rodent. Only it doesn't show up (gnome theme does) because there's an issue with the desktop theming.
I didn't look at it if it's because of the way some things are setting themes system-wide or if it's just an issue of the Xfce settings not being applied.
If the F18 spin uses rodent, this is actually a but. It should use Fedora, see
Sure, we could downgrade xfce4-icon-theme in comps... fine with me.
Maybe we can close it now?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
