Bug Description

Unity-icon-theme is missing 32px and other alternative sizes for the new Launcher icons. This will cause the Launcher to revert back to Humanity icons when the Launcher icon size is changed to 32px (and possibly other sizes too).

To replicate:

Go to Unity plugin in ccsm and resize the Launcher icons to 32px. At this point the icons are likely to just scale down while keeping the theme. Go to Appearance Preferences. Switch to Clearlooks theme and then back to Ambiance. The icons should revert to Humanity icons right after the Appearance Preferences window is closed.

The icons will get the unity-icon-theme back after login, but will revert to Humanity after some time or activity.

DistroRelease: Ubuntu 11.04
Package: unity 3.8.8-0ubuntu2

Adding more explanatory image.

Confirmed, but as resizing is not in the default configuration (a user must have actively installed CCSM *and* chosen to play with the experimental features) it's probably a low-priority compared to making the release.

For Ubuntu 11.10 hopefully we can fix the design/export process and move to SVG icons for all of the assets in a more controlled manner.

Adding for 'ayatana-design'. Ultimately, we'll need to ship more more complete/scalable sets of assets.

Lorem: BTW, as a side note, because of bug #761421 ("UIFe: Launcher: 'user-trash' and 'user-trash-full' are neon-on-white lens. Should be Humanity") the trash icons are intended to return to the Humanity versions.

There are much more 32pix icons missing in Humanity. Just look at "System settings" through indicator-session applet. Many icons in gnome control center are blurry and scaled down from 48pix... I have very long time ago reported to Humanity icons developers that they must create all icons on all sizes(like in old gnome-colors icon theme) if they wanna have trully beaufitul icon theme. But it seem that they don't care...

@6205, Have you read this bug report?
If you dont know what you are talking about, I would suggest you not comment and spam bug report about irrelevant topics.

Also, we do have a life to lead, we are not doing this as a "job" !
If you find any missing icons, feel free to work on any missing icons.. rather than spamming Humanity bug reports with your irrelevant comments...
We work on our free time, to do what we find pleasure in doing..
And sure, you are free to rant too but, when you comment like above, it makes us such less inclined to do your bidding. ;-)
