Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2022-05-15 18:56:22 UTC
I didn't report it here as I was following directly the bug upstream waiting for a fix:

But fix didn't arrive and probably people will notice it when updating to Gnome 42 when it goes to stable. 

I am unsure if we could workaround it in anyway that is not re-adding the dropped icons in our x11-themes/adwaita-icon-theme :/
Comment 1 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2022-05-26 13:49:05 UTC
As explained in upstream bug, the removal of that "legacy" icons have also affected other apps as inkscape , xournalpp. I also see Debian is installing some of that icons from 41 sources to prevent issues with other apps like Nemo
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2022-05-26 13:54:07 UTC
This is the list of affected icons:

They also apply a fix to prevent a breakage for rtl locales

This implements Debian workaround. I am using it on my system and looks to fix the icons for Nemo, Evolution, Inkscape, .etc

It also fixes rtl icons and the location of the cursor theme to make it work under Wayland

I would go for this as I am no optimistic with adwaita-icon-theme upstream reverting the breakage

    x11-themes/adwaita-icon-theme: Package legacy icons and fix cursors path
    adwaita-icon-them dropped many legacy icons breaking many different
    applications. We were waiting for pieces to get fixed but, for now, it has
    turned into never ending disputed among different upstreams and breakage
    being kept for Gnome 42 cycle affecting many different apps.
    We follow Debian for now until this is better solved in the future in one
    way on another.
    Also keep upstream default location for cursor themes. Gentoo location is
    kept for backwards compatibility but that location is highly Gentoo
    specific. As a consequence, upstreams keep breaking in several ways and not
    fixing their apps to honour our PATH.
