Bug Description

currently calibre use "calibre-gui" for system tray icon, which is calibre main icon. if we change icon name to something like "calibre-tray", then we can have a dedicated icon for calibre system tray in various icon themes like "Papirus", so that icon could better match with other applications system tray icon which are monochrome. see attachment for difference between current calibre tray icon and other apps which have a dedicated monochrome icon in "Papirus" icon theme.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.

status: New → Fix Released

I install github version of calibre and we add calibre-tray icon to papirus icon theme (https://github.com/PapirusDevelopmentTeam/papirus-icon-theme/issues/1015) but, tray icon still is the same as before (calibre-gui). I check calibre code and see these lines in /usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/ui.py file:

if self.system_tray_icon is not None:
   self.system_tray_icon.setIcon(QIcon(I('lt.png', allow_user_override=False)))
   if not (iswindows or isosx):
       self.system_tray_icon.setIcon(QIcon.fromTheme('calibre-gui', self.system_tray_icon.icon()))

I think these lines must be changed!!!

I change calibre-qui to calibre-tray in

self.system_tray_icon.setIcon(QIcon.fromTheme('calibre-gui', self.system_tray_icon.icon()))

and problem solved.

self.system_tray_icon.setIcon(QIcon.fromTheme('calibre-tray', self.system_tray_icon.icon()))
