Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2013-10-10 10:58:45 CEST
Noticed this when doing a fresh install of the client on Fedora 19 with Gnome 3. Only the PNG icons were picked up, not the SVG one.

I suspect this is because we do not use xdg-icon-resource to install the SVG (since it doesn't support those icons). The DE will then notice the PNG icons as they are added, but does not refresh things once the SVG is in place. Running "xdg-icon-resource forceupdate" fixes things.

We should probably start adding the icons using --noupdate, and then have a forceupdate at the end instead. Same thing with the removal.

Fixed in 28212, but keeping open until test with next build.

Did a quick test, basic functionality seems to work, but I'm not sure if my XFCE picks up the SVG or not. Leaving this to the QA tester.

We need to fix the other packages as well, not just the client.

Verified the problem using 4.1.1 client and the fix using build 4303. Icons was updated. I also verified that the changes to server installation also works.
