[Ubuntu] [hardy] Openoffice.org falls back improperly and doesn't display icons

Bug #153598 reported by Pixilarion on 2007-10-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openoffice.org (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I installed OpenOffice under Xubuntu Gutsy, but no icons were shown. I guess OpenOffice doesn't recognise the human theme if the userinterface of Xubuntu is not set to the human theme. I guess this can easily (maybe temporarily) be fixed by including the tango theme ("openoffice.org-style-tango") with the installation of "openoffice.org".

Same problem with icons here with Kubuntu-KDE4 Hardy. The only icons are displayed when selecting human icons in openoffice.

I can confirm the bug in the actual Xubuntu Hardy!

Installing the tango-style fixed it for me!

I would think that the best solution would be for Ubuntu's tango-icon-theme package (or maybe -extras) would depend on (or at least suggest) openoffice.org-style-tango.

I just installed a "dark theme", which is just a "human them" with all parameters set to black for backgrounds and white for texts.
The icons form Open Office disappeared, I had to reinstall some openoffice.org-style[...] packages to have them back.
I'm using Jaunty with OpenOffice.org 3.0.1 (well, the last one from APT, OOO300m15 (Build:9379) ).
I don't know if it can be seen as a bug : I'm a web developer, and I don't care if I look at an icon or a fall-back text...
