Description i.Dark_Templar 2022-02-14 16:44:54 UTC
'Hardware Locality lstopo' desktop entry doesn't have a valid icon

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -1 sys-apps/hwloc
2. run DE if not running yet, KDE for example
3. Locate 'Hardware Locality lstopo' menu entry in main menu
Actual Results:  
'Hardware Locality lstopo' has placeholder icon in KDE, might have no icon in other DE/WMs

Expected Results:  
Correct and present icon should be used. Not installing desktop entry is also an option.

$ cat /usr/share/applications/lstopo.desktop 
# should only be used when lstopo is built with Cairo/X11 support
# so that no terminal is required
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Hardware Locality lstopo
Comment=Show hardware topology

Icon 'hwloc' is specified but no icon is packaged. I've found suitable icons in upstream repository, but they're missing in tarball for current version 2.6.0:

(pacho, feel free to fix if you're able, as I only tend to drive-by hwloc & may forget about it)

    sys-apps/hwloc: Install icon
    No revbump as it is a minor change, hopefully most people will simply get it
    fixed in next bumps then. Use upstream android png icon over svg as it has a
    high enough resolution and text looks misaligned in svg icon.
