Description Jakub Steiner 2007-02-16 13:24:50 UTC
There's a couple of artwork that needs an update. 

The capplet icon itself (all sizes). FOr changing passwords, there seems to be a lock icon, needed at 48x48 and having 2 states. 

There is also gnome-about-me-bulb-off.png and gnome-about-me-bulb-on.png, I'm not sure where they are used though.

Comment 2 Jakub Steiner 2007-02-16 14:59:01 UTC
Currently the icon ships with gnome-icon-theme and is called about-me.png, which doesn't fit into the naming scheme defined by the icon naming spec draft. Need to ponder an appropriate name.
Comment 3 Jakub Steiner 2007-02-16 15:08:08 UTC
Correction, it's actually called user-info.png, not about-me.

the lock icons for authorization in about-me

They come in both SVG and PNG formats, as rsvg needs to get bug #341304 fixed before it renders it properly.
Comment 5 Jakub Steiner 2007-02-16 22:19:48 UTC
Commited to gnome-icon-theme in the end.
Comment 6 Jakub Steiner 2007-02-16 22:20:38 UTC
D'oh, the lock icons still need to go in gnome-control-center.
Comment 7 Thomas Wood 2007-02-21 23:30:28 UTC
If you've added these to gnome-icon-theme, shouldn't the About Me capplet be using icons from the theme rather than installing it's own?
Comment 8 Jakub Steiner 2007-02-22 12:43:24 UTC
Only the app icon has been added to the gnome icon theme. Rodney, what do you reckon would be best for the authorization/lock keys?
Comment 9 Jones Lee 2007-03-02 10:45:11 UTC
The title icon is the old style icon still, i think it need some patch to use git icon instead of its own.
Comment 10 Jones Lee 2008-05-10 10:48:13 UTC
I think we should finalize on the bug, first, I find no icon in the naming-spec that related to 'about-me', so I think the app icon definitely does not belong to theme icon instead it will be capplet's custom named icon. And IMHO, should we add the authorization/lock key to git so it can be reused on other apps aswell? Again, what do you reckon Dobey?
Comment 11 Jones Lee 2008-06-26 01:41:06 UTC
I believe that g-i-t should not ship the app icon, instead g-c-c should ship it under /usr/share/icons/hicolor.

I am really confused about where should the icons go to? Is it /usr/share/icons/hicolor OR is it /usr/share/<appname>/icons/hicolor? According to, it seems to me the latter location is the right one.... (confused still)
Comment 12 Jakub Steiner 2010-03-04 11:09:37 UTC
gnome-icon-theme 2.29.1 now ships with two new status icons - changes-prevent and changes-allow. about-me should simply look those up for the dialog.

Patch for using changes-prevent and changes-allow from the icon-them instead of the outdated lock-icons. Guess that would be one of those nice to have improvements for a polished look in GNOME3 ;-)

Do you have access to git? Don't forget to remove those icons, too.
