Description Michael Orlitzky gentoo-dev 2021-05-05 12:57:53 UTC
This package currently uses rsvg-convert to make PNGs out of the upstream SVGs, but I think it can use ksvgtopng from kde-plasma/kde-cli-tools instead. The tango-icons configure.ac says,

  SVGCONVERT=""
  AC_MSG_CHECKING([SVG to PNG conversion method])
  if test "x$enable_large_bitmaps" = "xyes"; then
     PKG_CHECK_EXISTS([librsvg-2.0 >= 2.12.3],
                      [enable_large_bitmaps=yes], [enable_large_bitmaps=no])
     if test "x$enable_large_bitmaps" = "xyes"; then
        svgconvert_prog="rsvg"
     else
        svgconvert_prog="ksvgtopng"
     fi
  ...

I haven't actually tried it (installing KDE wants to make a mess here), but it would be nice to have the alternative for people who already have the KDE (but not gnome) stuff installed.

Same would be needed for tango-icon-themes-extra.

Tried it but..
```
Aborted (core dumped)
qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: minimal, offscreen, wayland-egl, wayland, wayland-xcomposite-egl, wayland-xcomposite-glx, xcb.

(I'll CC kde@ in case they know of some way to work around that)

Probably needs virtualx to work?
