Virtual Machine Manager lacking proper icon

Bug #206861 reported by Mike MacCana on 2008-03-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
virt-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: virt-manager

Virtual Machine Manager uses a picture of large 90s desktop tower computer as its icon. See /usr/share/virt-manager/pixmaps/virt-manager-icon.svg.

* The picture is partially transparent, so it's difficult to see what it actually is.
* This is a picture, not an icon, and doesn't fit GNOME, Tango or Ubuntu guidelines
* A desktop computer has little to do with virtualization.

Compare with VMware or Parallels icons, which use a box metaphor for virtualization.

This should be fixed now in recent virt-manager releases, such as the one in Lucid.
