Thread: yast software manager sw_single has small hard to see symbols for status

  1. #1

    Default yast software manager sw_single has small hard to see symbols for status

    The symbols were correct .then they changed.
    I have tried everything to change them back that i can think of.
    They are virtually unreadable and very small.
    i have install fresh install of opensuse tumblweed in vm .and updated and they are fine there
    I have copied all system setting fonts,icons application style in system setting
    check fonts are same as an new install
    I suspect its a package that was installed
    I have standard repos + packman

    see picture below
    does anyone know how i can change back please?

    That link does not load. The browser says that the connection timed out (seveeral trials done).

    Better use https://susepaste.org/ ( the image button is right top).

    It happened to me that the symbols have shrunk, you can change them starting systemsettings5 super user> icons and I installed the theme Newaita using it, I also tried to enlarge the default, below left> size icons> small icons> bringing it from 16 to 22 but I did not like them

    You can also use the CLI commands “susepaste” and “susepaste-screenshot” – take a look at the “man” pages – they don't have “-h” and “-?” options …

    @hotsummer55:

    The YaST icons are supplied by the “yast2-branding-openSUSE” package – if you search the “/usr/share/icons/” directory tree for “*yast*” PNG files you should see them or, “rpm -ql yast2-branding-openSUSE” …

    Take note that, the icon sizes are 16x16, 22x22, 32x32, 48x48, 64x64 and 256x256 only and, only the “hicolor” icons are available in all sizes …

    Be that as it may, the main issue was, an awful amount of people forget that, YaST runs as the user “root” and therefore, all settings to the YaST GUI have to be made with that user (root) …
