Description Miro Hrončok 2018-08-31 07:46:30 UTC

This looks similar to but is not just xpm but png as well.

Apparently, the following items are afected:

/usr/share/applications/qt4-qtconfig.desktop (Icon=qt4-logo)
/usr/share/applications/qt4-designer.desktop (Icon=designer)
/usr/share/applications/qt5-designer.desktop (Icon=designer-qt5)
/usr/share/applications/cura.desktop (Icon=cura-icon)
/usr/share/applications/lftp.desktop (Icon=lftp-icon)
/usr/share/applications/xfce-keyboard-settings.desktop (Icon=preferences-desktop-keyboard)


No idea for the keybord icon:

There are more (Chromium, DB Server for SQLite, Cool Retro term, Video4Linux Control Panel)...

Comment 4 Miro Hrončok 2018-08-31 07:51:54 UTC
Oh not, /usr/share/applications/xfce-keyboard-settings.desktop
 - it is 

/usr/share/applications/system-config-keyboard.desktop (Icon=system-config-keyboard)


Comment 5 Raphael Groner 2018-08-31 15:59:16 UTC
What icons theme is configured? You can check with xfce4-appearance-settings.

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2018-08-31 16:00:47 UTC
This is icon theme agnostic.

Comment 7 Raphael Groner 2018-08-31 16:03:43 UTC
Well, I know similiar issues from prior versions so I guessed a configuration issue in first run. Some themes fail to properly set a fallback to hicolor for missing icon files.

Comment 8 Raphael Groner 2018-08-31 16:05:53 UTC
Menu and its icons are handled in garcon. Reassigning.

Comment 9 Mukundan Ragavan 2018-08-31 23:20:07 UTC
This is an issue that crops up when gtk-2 applications show icons in gtk-3 environment - if I understand correctly.

We fixed this somehow in the past. Trying to recall...

Comment 10 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2018-09-01 04:56:13 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 29-beta by Fedora user raphgro using the blocker tracking app because:

 Assuming the Xfce Testcase [*] applies. Not all icons are correctly displayed with the default Fedora theme. There's an update in preparation.

Comment 15 René Genz 2018-09-09 20:59:29 UTC
for the record:
* in screenshot 2 the program menu is:
Accessories -- DB Browser for SQLite
Development -- DB Browser for SQLite
program `sqlitebrowser` from package sqlitebrowser with files:
=> resolution of file is OK

* in screenshot 3 the program menu is:
Multimedia -- Video4Linux Control Panel
program `v4l2ucp` from package v4l2ucp with files:
=> resolution of file is OK

garcon-0.6.1-21 also fixes problems with icons that have different dimensions than the folder they are in, f.i.
Internet -- Gitso
`gitso` from package gitso with files:
=> PNG file is a 512x512 px in a 128x128 folder, see RHBZ#1223943

Comment 16 Adam Williamson 2018-09-10 22:47:54 UTC
Discussed at 2018-09-10 freeze exception review meeting: . Accepted as a freeze exception issue as a prominent cosmetic issue in a release-blocking desktop.
