Bug Description

Launcher icons should be tinted with the average color of the background when the dash is open (since revision 1879), however mine are still white-ish gray. The same happens to the BFB even when the dash is not open.

Jason knows about the issue he said ARB GPUs yet inherit the color. I saw it on one of my system.

Thanks for the info, I'm on an Intel 945GM so this must be the case.

Still a bug, even if drastically improved with the latest changes to launcher icons.
What is wrong in the current implementation is that launcher icons gets desaturated and becomes more transparent. They should be colorized instead (for example, desaturating the icon and blend it with OVERLAY blending operator) and not lose in transparency.

The animation from state A (fully normal colored) to be (wallpaper-colorization for icons) could be applied by calculating the wallpaper-colorized version of the icon and paint with alpha from 0.0 to 1.0 above the state A icon.
