2008-02-10 14:42:30 Ioannis description This is a standard conformance issue (as of http://standards.freedesktop.org/icon-theme-spec/icon-theme-spec-latest.html) The gnome-terminal is one of several applications that use an explicit suffix for their 'Icon' filed in their %.desktop e.g. Icon=gnome-terminal.png instead of Icon=gnome-terminal Assuming I'm getting this right, this means that the application's icon will always use the PNG version and never the SVG (assuming it's available). As a subsequence, several visual effects, such as compiz scale, shift-switcher and more, will display an aliased icon. Other applications with the same issue are: gnome-dictionary tsclient eclipse gparted graveman gconf-editor cddb-slave dotedit gnome-ppp hwdb thunderbird firefox redhat-my-default-printer bum redhat-manage-print-jobs gnome-compiz-preferences ooo-template synaptic redhat-system-config-printer vino-preferences gucharmap gnumeric scim-setup inkscape avidemux gnome-btdownload (using .xpm) icedtea-java7-javaws python2.5 icedtea-java7-java sun-java6-java sun-java6-javaws jabref mplayer fontforge and some third-party: nvidia-settings vmware-player skype opera This is a standard conformance issue (as of http://standards.freedesktop.org/icon-theme-spec/icon-theme-spec-latest.html) The gnome-terminal is one of several applications that use an explicit suffix for their 'Icon' filed in their %.desktop e.g. Icon=gnome-terminal.png instead of Icon=gnome-terminal Assuming I'm getting this right, this means that the application's icon will always use the PNG version and never the SVG (assuming it's available).
