Bug Description

[ Impact ]

Buttons in radiance aren't properly themed in highdpi mode

[ Test case ]
1. Run a gtk app with CSD (i.e.) gnome-disks with GDK_SCALE=2 and GTK_THEME=Radiance
   GDK_SCALE=2 GTK_THEME=Radiance gnome-disks
2. Buttons should be properly themed and with high-quality borders in both normal and
   focused state.

[ Regression potential ]

No proper borders are painted on buttons under Radiance


There is a typo in the file /usr/share/themes/Radiance/gtk-3.20/gtk-widgets.css that causes focused buttons to be drawn incorrectly in the radiance theme. The following change should be made to the file to fix the incorrect assets link:

< url("assets/button-focused.png@2"));
> url("assets/button-focused@2.png"));
