Bug Description


the icon size of the folder-drag-accept/gnome-fs-directory-accept icon in Nautilus is too small when a zoom level bigger than 100% in the icon view is used. This can be reproduced the following way:

- Start Nautilus (or Nemo)
- Open a directory that contains at least one subdirectory plus at least one file (or a second subdirectory)
- Switch to icon view, set a zoom level bigger than 100%
- Try to move a file/directory into another directory
- When the mouse moves over the target directory, it's icon will switch to the folder-drag-accept/gnome-fs-directory-accept icon, but in a version that is no larger than 48x48, even if the zoom level (and thus the icon size) is set greater. I have attached a screenshot that illustrates the problem.

With the Adwaita icon theme the problem does not happen, the icon seems to get the correct size at all zoom levels.

Currently the Humanity icon theme contains (as symlink) a svg file of the responsible folder-drag-accept/gnome-fs-directory-accept icon in the directories Humanity/status/24 and Humanity/48. The dirs for bigger icons (e.g. 128) do not contain that icons, so I assumed it may be a quick fix to symlink them to also to those dirs. But that caused just other problems - now the icons had always the 128x128 size regardless of zoom level and was often too big instead of too small!

A way to fix this seems to be to place png files of the icons in all of the Humanity/status/[icon size]-directories, each png scaled to the appropriate size. That is a bit more hassle but seems to work for the Adwaita theme.

Kind regards,
