Description vtkstef 2004-05-21 07:51:28 UTC
all the icon themes directories installed by gnome-incon-theme-1.2.0 do not include their corresponding desktop.index files which are required by kde icon loader. Here is an excerpt of KDE warnings that I get

6x16/stock/code not valid.
kdecore (KIconLoader): WARNING: Icon directory /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ group 1

These warnings are aloso discussed in

hicolor != gnome-icon-theme

i bet this is just kde being too rigid about what it expects from an icon theme, hicolor is just a placeholder without much value atm.

If it's only warnings it isn't much of a problem either.

I think upping hicolor to 0.5 might resolve these warnings.

I tried installing version 0.5 of hicolor-icon-theme and I the warnings still did not go away. I as per notes in the forums, I removed the above package, and warnings went away.
