The following categories in rpmdrake have the same icons:
archiving, public keys, sound, system, terminals ("gear" icon)
communications, networking ("globe" icon)
databases, development, editors, emulators, file tools, shells, text tools
("hammer and banner icon")
Also most of the sub-categories share the same icon. Just take a look with a
file manager which supports image preview in /usr/share/icons and you will see
the problem easily. For example, the blue "globe" icon is duplicated there 20
times, always with a different name.
(If we do such stuff at all, we could at least easily use symlinks to save a bit of space.)
I think it's actually not rpmdrake but desktop-common-data, that has to be fixed. That's where the icons are coming from.
Well, i didn't say rpmdrake has to be fixed :)
Just that the duplication is visible there, and it's maybe the most prominent place to see it.
Ah yes sorry for the noise
rm -rf /root/tmp && mkdir /root/tmp fixes the icons for rpmdrake as well
as for kde, should the root user log in to kde.
It is also normal in / usr / share / desktop-directories / there are still entries Mandriva.directory?
# ls /usr/share/desktop-directories/
Well, even if the same package is involved, I don't see the relationship between these directory namings and the wrong icons.
As per comment 4, I'm closing this bug as invalid. Feel free to reopen
if I'm mistaken.
it is a fact that we have numerous "wrong" icons in rpmdrake. But this need some work done by artwork and will most likely not happen in Mga2 but will need a bit more work.
This bug is only in parts connected to bug #107 (since the solution of bug #107 solves one wrong icon among many).
(sorry for the noise don't know what happen :/)
working on that one
This bug was filed against cauldron, but we do not have cauldron at the moment.
Please report whether this bug is still valid for Mageia 2.
Reassigning to artwork, please keep me informed, if I can do anything.
Hi all, as I'm in charge of the new rpm group feature for mageia 3, I looked into the icon issue.
The rpmdrake icons come from the desktop-common-data package (they are the same as the menu icons btw).
Following the redesign of the rpm groups (https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Feature:RPMGroupRevamp) and in order to fix the bug reported by Florian, here are the changes in icons that should (ideally) be done:
Icons to be created:
Icons to be created (lower priority):
Icons to be specialised:
- all identical to chemistry_section:
+ code_generator_section (only in menu)
+ data_visualization_section (only in menu)
+ development_environment_section (only in menu)
+ development_tools_section (only in menu)
- all identical to cards_section:
- all identical to sciences_section:
+ artificial_intelligence_section (only in menu)
+ electricity_section (only in menu)
+ numerical_analysis_section (only in menu)
+ robotics_section (only in menu)
Once all the new ones are at least created, I can update rpmdrake to use these icons. Then we can change the icons as we update them. I am emailing -atelier about that.
Added URL to wiki page that is tracking the status of this bug.
kind of fixed ?
I added new icons. So it's quite fixed (there are still duplicates, but not as critically as before).
