Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-11-19 15:20:33 UTC
It seems we are finally more near to be able to drop the old icon set in favor of adwaita-icon-theme. Most packages are done, some stabilizations are pending and a few reverse deps will need to be finally treecleaned

we can finally go ahead with this, all reverse deps were handled

I just wanted to comment since I'm using xfce, and by default if you have only Adwaita theme, some icons are missing, especially in right click menus on the panel ... This theme seems complete (I'm currently on ~amd64). I know there are alternatives like x11-themes/elementary-xfce-icon-theme which is decent and complete theme, but some people prefer old style simple icons.

I'm not sure if this is caused by missing icons, or xfce and its components use some different naming convention (I saw some commits regarding this in xfce git repos, to use new icon names). 

If possible can you please leave this theme available for some time?


One example of missing icons is

I would open a bug report against xfce-base/xfce4-panel suggesting maintainers to apply and to fix their dependencies (current ebuilds are not pulling any icon theme at all while it seems they rely on some). They should probably list adwaita elementary and other themes that supposedly cover the icons they are relying on

Also, I am seeing that applying that patch, as they use the new names finally, xfce4-panel will probably be able to simply pull virtual/freedesktop-icon-theme for that icons (for example, mate icon pack is also providing them for example)
