Thanks for your bug report.

/usr/share/applications/xscreensaver-properties.desktop seems to contain "Icon=xscreensaver.svg", but afaik, it should not include the file extension (it works with "Icon=xscreensaver"). Reassigning.

affects: xfce4-settings (Ubuntu) → xscreensaver (Ubuntu)

this bug still prevails in xubuntu maverick beta. the above solution proposed by lionel works. would be nice if someone could fix this "papercut".

This behavior was added in debian/patches/50_driver_screensaver-properties-desktop.patch.
However, it seems the spec doesn't explicitely forbid to add a file extension, so I'll workaround that for maverick in xubuntu-default-settings until it is properly fixed in xscreensaver.

Thanks for your bug report, and for Lionel's analysis. A fix has been committed to Debian git and will appear in 5.11-2. For Maverick (and Lucid?) I will recommend Lionel's solution of removing the svg extension in the desktop file. This has to be done by refreshing debian/patches/50_driver_screensaver-properties-desktop.patch to not add the svg extension. Alternatively (like in Debian git) just drop that patch file altogether, since the StartupNotify setting it also adds, is of no use.

I did not see Lionel's last comment before posting, so of course I was referring to his first solution. Also, as I commented in the Debian git log, the svg icon is not vectorized so there is not much reason to force the Desktop Environment to use it (instead of the xpm one).

Thanks for the feedback, I'll upload a fixed version in maverick. For lucid, I'm afraid this doesn't meet the sru requirements though.
