Bug Description

John Lea and Xi Zhu noticed that the group icons for Unity are out-of-date. This consists of 12 monochrome white-on-transparent icons:

  Dash Lens:
    Applications
    Files
    Music

  Apps Lens:
    Most Frequently Used
    Installed
    Apps available for download

  Files lens:
    Recent
    Downloads
    Folders

  Music lens:
    Songs
    Albums
    Available for purchase

These are RGB #ffffff and should be rendered with a "6px 20% glow".

The music icons have already been covered in bug #837254 ("Group icons for Songs and Albums are generic").

Alex: noticed in bug #837254 that you'd applied that locally to the music-lens branch. Do these need to be applied across several?

nb. to self; the server to which 'unity-lens-music' talks is down; it's possible to test using a dummy-data server:

  bzr branch lp:unity-lens-music
  sudo apt-get build-dep unity-lens-music
  ./autogen.sh && make
  killall unity-musicstore-daemon unity-music-daemon
  MUSICSTORE_URI=http://pyvore.com/ ./src/unity-musicstore-daemon
  <Super>
  search for anything; the same fixed results are returned (search for a piece of music that is also install locally, and then all three header categories will be populated with content for screen-shoting)

unity-asset-pool (0.8.22-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Merge from upstream version 0.8.20
    * Update all Unity Group header icons (LP: #837254)
      * group-{apps,files,folders,music,purchase,songs}.
  * This release by itself does not effect changes; but future optional
    add-ons such as 'unity-lens-music' may choose to make use of the
    additional icons and as-such may in turn require UIFe (LP#861456)

The u-a-p (a bunch of icons) upload by itself did not effect UIFe causing changes. Some of the lens that can make fuller use of the those new assets would still benefit from patching.

Rather than symlink hackery and needing to maintain that going forward it was felt preferable to fix the filenames loaded in the lenses themselves. This will require a UIFe from the Release and Docs team if done. The changes are cosmetic and unlikely to affect textual documentation text, but there would be a slight variation for the icons placed adjacent to text in screenshots of the Dash.

What does actually change here? The screenshot looks pretty much exactly like what we currently have. If these changes are in the sub-pixel level, please provide more details about the rationale and what actually changes. If this changes icons, we need to change the documentation accordingly.

In the first screenshot. The 'rosette with exclamation mark' next to "Apps for Download" becomes a 'circle with a downwards arrow'.

In the second screenshot the 'folder with star' next to 'Folders' becomes a 'folder without star'.

Ah, thanks. Please upload this ASAP then, if it only concerns these two icons. I just checked ubuntu-docs, seems we don't have screen shots for these two.

I confirm what pitti said. My screenshot of the Apps screen doesn't include the Apps Available for Download section.

Unsubscribing ~ubuntu-release. This was an FFe from last cycle that still has open Ubuntu tasks.
