Bug Description

Binary package hint: humanity-icon-theme

The gray panel icons in humanity (volume, networking, messaging and session menu) lack contrast when put on a white panel (which is still the default on the desktop as far as I know). The messaging menu icon is the worst, it's almost invisible.
On a related note, the five status icons are all gray and all have the same shape. It's hard to tell the difference between them.

humanity-icon-theme 0.3.1-ubuntu3, Ubuntu Karmic

Could you post a screenshot of the problem.

Counter to what you have reported the bubbles are quite different. the indicator session is broken as of now and is not setting the correct status.

The messaging icon is completely invisible in this case

The icons work much better with Dust.

This has been fixed in the latest rev. Now we are splitting the icon into two themes , for light and for dark panels.
For the light panel the issue has been fixed.
