Bug Description

Upon making a change to a file in LibreOffice (Writer/Calc/Impress/Draw/Math(/probably Base, not tested)), the 'Save' icon in the toolbar (which has 'Open' to the left of it and 'Export to PDF' to the right of it) changes to using the Galaxy theme icon for 'Save'. When an edit is made to a document and there are changes to be saved, there should be Human icon which is used for saving from the toolbar rather than Galaxy (which looks horribly inconsistent).

I don't know if the problem is that a Human icon for 'saving when changes have been made since the last save' doesn't exist or if it hasn't been implemented correctly.

The human theme isnt very well maintained anymore. Ubuntu switched to Breeze as default theme in Xenial -- Xubuntu should consider doing something similar (or help upstream with the human theme).

Xubuntu is using the libreoffice-style-elementay theme by default.

Ah my apologies, I upgraded to 16.04 from 15.10 (though I had used a bootable CD to upgrade rather than the release upgrade application), so I didn't realise it was no longer the default.

Same on Ubuntu MATE 16.04 (as probably on any flavor).

AFAIK the issue was brought about by changes in the behavior of the Save button: Earlier LibreOffice versions (such as the one included in 15.10) would gray out the change button when there were no unsaved changes and enable it as soon as changes were made. The icon was the same in both cases.

Somewhere in the recent versions (Xenial currently has 5.1.2.2) this was changed: the Save button is always enabled, and the icon changes depending on the presence of unsaved changes. With no usaved changes, the "old" icon is used (for which the Human theme has a replacement). When changes are made, the icon changes to a new one, which, presumably, Human doesn't know about yet, resulting in the Galaxy icon being used as a fallback. Adding the missing image should fix that.

summary: - Missing 'Save' icon for when there are changes to be saved
+ Missing 'Save' icon for when there are changes to be saved in Human
+ Theme

Posting this in the Launchpad bug tracker because it's a downstream issue:
If this bug doesn't get fixed, will it be possible to somehow forcibly remove Human and force a new default in Ubuntu 16.04 so that users who use Human and upgrade to 16.04 don't run into the bug?

Was going to close this because it's been closed upstream (Human is no longer maintained) but I've changed the title instead - people should've have to run into this bug.

Ah, I'm guessing that's Ubuntu policy. I can understand not making it possible for a migration from 15.10 since it's EOL so that might be impossible(!), but I'm guessing theoretically it could be done as an SRU for a migration from 14.04.5 LTS... I'm guessing there's other things to work on, but it's not particularly user-friendly not to fix the bug here.
