Thread: Evolution has busted Send/Receive Icon

    Default Evolution has busted Send/Receive Icon

    I've installed evolution and everything works but the ICON for Send/Receive Email is broken. Any way to fix this?

    Are you using the KDE desktop by any chance? Read this thread:

    Evolution is missing some icons in 11.2 - openSUSE Forums

    >>Are you using the KDE desktop by any chance?
    yup
    I'm fairly new to Linux and figured the KDE environment is more similar than Gnome (moving from MS) so to get my kids converted I'd need to show them something they could relate to better and KDE solves this problem.

    Didn't know Evolution was built for gnome (got that from following your references thread).

    And from that thread- "Finally found a better solution. I create a symlink from the directory /usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/stock to /usr/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/stock and from the directory /usr/share/icons/gnome/32x32/stock to /usr/share/icons/oxygen/32x32/stock. After this I ran SuSeconfig and this solved the missing icons problem for me"

    What's a symlink?
    And do I run SuSeconfig from a shell like "sudo SuSeconfig"?
    Guess I'll need to man SuSeconfig, huh?

    Gnome apps will usually do fine in KDE, but this is an issue that has come up before.

    And from that thread- "Finally found a better solution. I create a symlink from the directory /usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/stock to /usr/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/stock and from the directory /usr/share/icons/gnome/32x32/stock to /usr/share/icons/oxygen/32x32/stock.

    Soft/symbolic links are interpreted as if the contents of the link have been copied into the path being followed.

    ln -s /path/to/file

    And do I run SuSeconfig from a shell like "sudo SuSeconfig"?

    sudo will usually work, but 'su -' is generally recommended.

    Code:
    su -
    SuSEconfig

    Well, I was going to try the suggested fix but I have no "actions" folder under gnome, only under "oxygen" and there is no Send* icon file in any of the ?x? folders below.

    What am I missing?

    I updated evolution from Yast and now I have actions folders under both gnome & oxygen for each NxN. The mail-send-receive.png file is missing under all the oxygen NxN/actions folders.

    I tried to copy the png file to the same location under oxygen using Dolphin but got access denied. I tried to run Dolphin using a terminal and su - dolphin but the OS couldn't find dolphin.

    It looks like evolution resources for oxygen forgot the mail-send-receive.png file so either I need to batch copy all NxN/actions/mail-send-receive.png files from gnome to oxygen or execute symlink.

    Since I couldn't make heads or tails of what man symlink meant, I'd like to be able to first copy 1 and then perhaps batch copy all the icon files.

    1-Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong using dolphin;
    Why is access denied?
    What I need to do to allow access?

    2-I would think that I should be able to run dolphin from su but it won't run. I also believe that once I run dolphin from su I would have access, correct?

    3-And to automate the exercise if I were on Ugg a windows box I could simply create a .bat file that would iterate through all NxN/actions for me;
    ie;
    cp /usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/mail-send-receive.png /usr/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/mail-send-receive.png
    cp /usr/share/icons/gnome/32x32/mail-send-receive.png /usr/share/icons/oxygen/32x32/mail-send-receive.png
    etc...

    How do I do something like this with linux (or is this a bad idea)?

    Thanks Mike

    I copied mial-send-receive.png from Gnome to the same locations in oxygen and it didn't fix it.

    I removed evolution from yast and oxygen is still there with all the icons.

    What is the oxygen folder for(looks like it's not just for evolution)?

    Evolution send-receive icon is fixed fixed.
    Here's what I did:

    Uninstalled everything evolution via yast

    Found the "other" repos listed for "new users" and hooked them up.

    Search for: "Specifically, for instructions on adding repositories, new openSUSE users go here, and select your openSUSE version:"

    in this thread NEW Users - openSuse Pre-install (general) PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums

    Tried to reinstall evolution but yast complained about missing libs so I opened a terminal and ran zypper up from su
    rebooted
    installed evolution & evolution pilot from yast
    rebooted
    it's all better and the app remembered all my email settings.

    Maybe not the best way but it worked.

    Guess the best advice is to hookup those repos before installing anything new.

    Mike
