missing installer icon on liveCD desktop

Bug #188221 reported by Steve Langasek on 2008-02-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)
Declined for Hardy by Brian Murray

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

This appears to be a separate bug from the other reports about missing graphics in the alpha4 installer. When I boot the hardy alpha4 amd64 desktop CD, my 'install' icon on the desktop is a generic document icon.

There is also a 'rofs' icon on the desktop, probably related to the new gvfs and its desire to add icons for all removable volumes; so not an ubiquity or casper bug.

The problem is that the icon of ubiquity is not in the /usr/share/icon folder but in its own folder (/usr/share/ubiquity).
Two solutions :
- change the icon folder
- change .desktop file related to ubiquity-frontend-gtk package

It's actually in /usr/share/pixmaps. Has this become wrong? It used to work ...

No, it has not become wrong. Per fdo's icon theme specification:
"Icons and themes are looked for in a set of directories. By default, apps should look in $HOME/.icons (for backwards compatibility), in $XDG_DATA_DIRS/icons and in /usr/share/pixmaps (in that order)."

The problem was the .png suffix, which is no longer legal.
