[Solved] LXDE - doesn't display svg based icon themes

Post#1 by fanthom » 02 Feb 2011, 12:41

For 1.0 release i would like to replace 'Tango' icon theme with something better looking. Tried other png based icon themes like nuoveXT:
http://nuovext.pwsp.net/
but png icons doesn't compress at all (nuoveXT icon package weight more then whole 003-lxde.xzm module).
That's why we need something svg based.

KSA_ARAB proposition looks nice:
viewtopic.php?f=68&t=211

but as i said - no luck with forcing LXDE to use svg icons. tried to add libsvg package and still nothing.
Any ideas? Maybe lxde doesn't support svg at all?

I've looked at this, so it can be it doesn't detect the gdk svg module and maybe the solution can be to run update-gdk-pixbuf-loaders, it should update this files

Code: Select all

# ls -la /usr/lib64/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders
total 344

@ponce
works:)
after installing librsvg you need to run 'update-gdk-pixbuf-loaders' manually or just reboot Porteus.
