Description Jack 2017-09-01 16:06:33 UTC
kde-plasma/oxygen installs six folders under /usr/share/icons (KDE_Classic, Oxygen_Black, _Blue, _White, _Yellow, and _Zion).  Under each of those is a cursors folder.  In each of them col-resize is a symlink to split_v and row-resize is a symlink to split_h.  These links are backwards: col-resize should point to split_h (resizing a column is adjusting a split horizontally) and row-resize should point to split_v.  If you look in /usr/share/icons/breeze_cursors (part of kde-plasma/breeze) split_h points to col-resize and split_v points to row-resize, which is the correct matching.  (I don't think it matters which is the symlink and which is the real file, just that they are paired correctly.)

Just for background, I discovered this in mail-client/balsa, where I noticed the cursor icon was incorrect for resizing panes.

Could you please create a bug upstream for us to track, or even better, submit a patch on KDE's phabricator resource?
Comment 2 Jack 2017-09-12 23:43:44 UTC
I've been away for a week, but will fill upstream and post link here.  If I can figure out the actual source and what the patch would be, I suppose this can be my first use of Phabricator, but I do have an account.

Comment 4 Jack 2018-07-16 22:21:32 UTC
Created a while ago, and added additional chanages to symlinks dir, as requested there.  I have no idea  how to get anyone to actually review it.
