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.
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.
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.
A “sledgehammer” solution I’m using for the moment is:
set ‘breeze5-icons’ as ‘Protected – Do Not Modify’
then in ‘/usr/share/icons’ replace the breeze5 icon set with a dummy set containing no icons. rotfl!
I’m sure if this was a case of breeze icons having a few oxygen icons showing, then it would be fixed asap…
