Bug Description

The Chromium launcher in the Unity menu looks somewhat pixelated and distorted. I'm guessing it's a poorly scaled .png (Chromium's fault) or Unity is rendering a .svg wrong.

The icon isn't great once scaled, indeed.

They all look sane to me.

See the GraphicsMagick montage attached

obtained with the following command:
gm montage -label "%d\n%f\n%wx%h" -geometry +4+4 `dpkg -L chromium-browser | grep icon | grep '\.png$'` /tmp/o.png

I am experiencing a similar problem on my laptop when using Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition. I don't have Chromium installed, but I do have Google Chrome, and its icon appears to display just fine. However, I get the problem with the icons for Emacs and Hedgewars, as shown in the attached screenshot. I think the Gwibber icon is affected as well, but it's not as noticeable. I don't think this problem is only specific to Chromium.

Hi! I have problems with my icon app (gufw) in the left panel of Unity. I changed the icon in the main glade file, this changed the icon in Unity left panel, but the icon is very 'blur'. See this capture, I overwrited the icon with the gnome-terminal, the second is really gufw, and the first the original gnome-terminal app: http://ubuntuone.com/p/hqi/
I only have the icon in 48x48.
Which icon is getting Unity?
Any help, please? Thanks in advance! :)
