Just built openoffice-3.0.0. Went fine, but in testing I've just noticed that it is not using the GTK and GNOME icon sets.
I realize that OO does funny thing widget and theme wise, but one of the original purposes of openoffice-ximian and the ooo-build patch sets was to get good GNOME integration. Wrong icons in MenuItems does rather stand out.
Given that I have USE="gnome gtk" etc, I'm wondering what might be wrong somewhere, and if there are deeper integration issues that have also failed.

I'm not quite sure that I understand what you are refering to. Is this about the menu entries (in the gnome menu) or about the icons in the applications itself? Also could you please post a screenshot illustrating the concrete problem?
Created attachment 173422 [details]
Screenshot of writer with some icons of a different style
Maybe he was talking about some of the icons wrongly being changed away from the old ximian/tango-ish look&feel?
In the screenshot, the "spellcheck" icon is clearly different. I think this is a bug, because the icon is correct in Calc. I tried changing it through the toolbar editing feature but the right icon turns out to be too small sized.
Some other icons over the years also have arguably diverged from the clean Ximian/Tango-ish look, like the "new file" and "open file" icons etc.
My recollection was that our build of openoffice was properly GNOME integrated. As the second comment points out, this may have been an internal skin or theme engine.
Widgets etc _are_ being drawn correctly (it *is* using GTK at least that far). I don't pretend to know the mechanics they use internally. But certainly the gtk (and on top of that, gnome) stock icons should be used by the app; my filing this bug was largely to record my having suddenly noticed for the first time that that images being used are _not_ from the active (or any) Theme.
I fully recognize that this may not be something you can do anything about. I'm hoping it's just a missing configure option.

Ah, now I understand what you mean ;) Indeed OOo uses it's own icon sets, there is not "real" integration in the form that it just takes the GNOME icons atm. (which would be difficult anyway as OOo has a need for lots of non-generic icons). Still I agree this would be nice to have, but this is something which has to be handled upstream, so please file a bug at
