    Default Yast2 Package Manager package symbols not loaded in help

    Hi,
    i just need some help identifying the symbols in the YAST2 package manager. I had a application claiming that ffmpeg is missing so i looked it up in the yast2 package manager. But i found the package not uninstalled but not with a normal check mark either. Is has a checkmark with some dots below it (see the screenshot).


    I though i could find some information using the help -> symbols but that does not help as you can see, there seem to be an error loading the symbol images:

    That checkmark with dots indicate that it is scheduled for install (when you click "accept"). You did not request it, but it is being brought in automatically, perhaps as a dependency of something else you installed.

    I have no idea why the help is not working for you. Here's what I get (in English)

    I hope that helps.

    Your screenshot looks like Factory.

    The symbols in the help are not shown here on 13.1 either, regardless whether I run YaST in german or english.
    I suppose a bug report is in order...

    Yes, it is. That should not matter for what the OP wanted.

    I had not thought of checking 13.1. You are right. The symbols are missing. It does indeed look like a bug.

    No, but it explains why it is working for you and not for him...

    Thank you, hitting the accept button started the installation of the checked packages. Shall i report this (the missing symbols) as a bug?

    Yes it appears to be a bug I don't see the icons here either. in 13.1

    Note you do see the icons if you right click a package which gives a somewhat shorter list but with icons

    There are probably some spelling errors in it but i think it should be clear whats the problem.

    I fixed this for 13.1 and requested an online update, see the bug report for details.
    In short, YaST's help text used the wrong path for the images, /usr/share/libyui/images/ instead of /usr/share/YaST2/images/.
