Bug Description

This icon is provided by both Slingshot and BeatBox:

/usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/actions/view-list-icons-symbolic.svg

This creates a package conflict, making installation of either require the force option if the other is already installed.

Changed in beat-box:
status: New → Invalid

Is this something that should be fixed in each project, or at the packaging level?

summary: - icon already present in slingshot
+ Duplicate icon creates package conflict between Slingshot and BeatBox

I have no idea. I didn't even understand the bug until it was reworded.

Same issue here with packaging for Gentoo.

If the icon is actually the same (I haven't checked that) it might be an option to have the action icons included into the elementary-icons set.

Another option would be to rename the icon in one of the packages.

I'm going to make it optional from CMakeLists.txt.
