    Default 20151124 snapshot has seriously broken the use of Oxygen Icons

    Since updating TW to 20151124 (using zypper dup) the use of Oxygen Icons is _seriously_ broken.

    I have a 'mix and match' of Oxygen and Breeze as shown in this screenshot:
    http://paste.opensuse.org/view/raw/486ebaef

    I have tried deleting ~/.cache/icon-cache.kcache to no avail...

    I noticed that oxygen-icon-* was replaced during the update with oxygen5-icon-*. The original oxygen-icon-* is still available in the TW repo and I tried re-installing that, again to no avail...

    What's going on here?... I want my Oxygen back.... (I'll refrain from saying what I think about Breeze)

    Also saw this on the factory mailing list:
    http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-f.../msg00730.html

    ... whilst relating to Leap, this also seems to confirm that 'something' recently broke in the way icons are handled.

    Not only Oxygen, also happens with "Adwaita"...

    I feel a bug report coming on, only I'm not sure which component to report it against

    Upgrade?

    Plasma5 will not use the old icon format it must be the new 5 format. It is supposed to change old to new but it seems the process may not be working full for some leaving blank icons.

    Sorry, don't think I fully understand your 'Upgrade?' comment. Could you please elaborate?

    Yup, I had a blank "Documents" folder icon place via dolphin, for example. Via folder's properties there is one available and selectable. Not sure why the process failed to find it - maybe case sensitivity or buggy code. In some cases one can find a nearest equivalent that way, and I didn't have many missing file icons (Breeze) that weren't there before. I'm guessing some applications using custom file types submitted no new or old "plasma 5 file type" icons.

    Question was did you get were you ar by an upgrade or a clean new install?

    upgrades tend to bring old stuff along and the change in icon format may cause you problems where in a fresh install all icons should be right to start

    Clean install of TW a few months ago (mid June?), then updated as each snapshot issued.

    These (Oxygen) icons were displaying perfectly OK prior to the 20151124 snapshot.

    Also, if I create a completely new user (which has the default Breeze icons), then change the icon theme to Oxygen (or Adwaita), that new user also then has the mix of icons...

    Are you able to change icon themes correctly yourself, or do you see the same mix as I'm seeing?

    Did you notice that the default Oxygen fonts (KDE) were also replaced by "Noto Sans" fonts?

    No, I hadn't noticed that. I don't use the Oxygen fonts, they, together with many others I've removed. (One of the first things I do on any new install is to remove the plethora of fonts I know I'll never use. I really dislike wading through what seems like an endless list when selecting a font.)

    There was some discussion on the factory mailing list a while back I believe about changing to "Noto", although I didn't follow it.


    Back to the original Icon problem, I've now filed a bug report:
    https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=356064
    and will see what the outcome of that is.

    There have always been too many dubious fonts (IMO). If "Noto" hadn't automatically replaced the Oxygen fonts, I probably wouldn't have noticed it, although it should be a system-wide replacement on Tumbleweed for default Sans, Serif, etc. That's what I half expected from an old ML discussion thread - I missed anything about a decision having being taken (just another "Maker's choice"). I suppose it will happen for Leap 42.x at some point.
