Hi Andreas, Florian, all

Hi Florian,

Well yes and no. The icons in the Linux binary are the right ones, but
if you build from source you still get the old ones by default.

So this is a bug - the source shouldn't contain old OOo icons any more.

The relevant bug report is, but I don't know how far Thorsten (or anybody else?) has been able by now to update the places where the old icons appear.

To add
complexity to this story: The icons in the screenshot are from the
openSUSE default icon set, I've used them on my system for the screens
as the LibreOffice default icons look pretty bad in GNOME3 atm.
(Disclaimer to those who don't know me: I'm the author of the article in
question). That's simply because we (LO) don't deliver high resolution
icons right now.

We do. Thorsten did integrate all the different sizes we (LibO Design Team) provided.

The largest scale is 256x256 for all application/document icons.
They look like this:

One month ago Jakub Steiner mentioned already the lack of 256px icons. Thorsten had been involved in this discussion, but I don't know if the source of the problem could already be found out and solved in master.

If not, it's my fault too, because I didn't include the topic in the bug report until today :-(

What GNOME Shell / GNOME 3.0 would need is shiny
256x256 Pixel resolutions. 48x48 are scaled up and look very fuzzy as a

Of course. We do provide the large scale, they are just not distributed in the respective /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ folders.

So what needs to be done:

*) Add 256x256 pixel versions of the LO icons
... to the right folders ;-)

*) Adapt libreoffice-build to actually use them ;)
... I think this might be a GUI feature ...

*) Optionally: Make openSUSE to not use its own icons for
LibreOffice ;)

It's their decision (even if we hope they would be satisfied by our hires icons). The least we would ask is not to use symbols...

Best regards


PS: Designers: We should think of providing single SVG icons (256px) to be provided as scalable sources in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable. But I think it is not as easy as extracting .png files from the Inkscape source, if we want to get single flat icons for every application...
