Lost icons on SolydX

Edit: How to get the icon back

If you can't find "solydx.png" or "solydx-flat.png" please use "distributor-logo-solydx" instead or (if you know your way on your system) download the old logo here: https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.ph ... 809#p64685.

2 SolydX machines lost icons during an update 2 weeks ago when you first changed the theme. Both lost the whisker menu icon. Somebody else reported this too.
One machine also has an empty starter applet, I'm not sure what it held before the update (maybe the thunderbird notify area?). I don't know whether both issues are related but I'm sure the whisker issue happened due to the theme change.

I know how to get the whisker menu icon back manually but I know other people (where I installed the system) won't be able to. I don't have access to those machines. Is there a way for you to repair the damage remotely?

I did but there were valid arguments against it: viewtopic.php?p=64486#p64486. So, I had to remove that.
However, I've added symbolic links in the adjustments-8 packages but I couldn't for the wallpaper in SolydK. This should at least prevent the whisker menu icon to disappear.

I cannot do anything more, I'm afraid.

Ah I thought that discussion was only about SolydK.
So people who upgrade now will keep the icon but those cases where it's already gone have to repair manually?

A suggestion for handling unfortunate events like this: Put the repair in a separate package, equipped with a warning, which people could install manually. Maybe not appropriate for this little issue but in case something bigger goes wrong.

How to get back the lost menu icon on SolydX

Postby ilu » 10 Mar 2017 16:24

1. Right click on the space where the icon is missing and choose Properties/Eigenschaften.
2. Then left click on the place next to "Symbol:" where the icon/symbol should be.
3. A box will open where you need to use the uppermost dropdown menue to choose All icons/Alle Symbole (important!).
4. Then scroll down untill you see the right icon for SolydX (sorted alphabetically), left-click it and click OK.
5. Click Close/Schließen on the Properties/Eigenschaften windows and the icon should be back.

As I'm the only developer of SolydXK I have limited time to develop and test. Mistakes happen and this is a minor one.

The whisker menu icon is still disappearing and I can't readd it because there is no SolydX icon anymore - at least none I can find on this machine (which happens to be the Pi). I thought the bug in the updated package was fixed? There is something called "distributor-logo-solydx" but I'm searching for the old round one.
I still don't understand why you removed the SolydX artwork on jessie. Anyway, you will have your reasons and I don't need to understand them. I'm just worried that this gives a bad impression for all users who expect jessie to be stable according to the debian definition.
But maybe this is just a SolydXPi problem and its fixed for the regular architecture?

On my SolydX (jessie) system the Whisker Menu icon is /usr/share/pixmaps/solydx.png

Code: Select all

roger@dino:/usr/share/pixmaps$ ls -l solydx*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   10 Mar  4 17:23 solydx-flat.png -> solydx.png
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9275 Jan 24  2016 solydx.png

Yes, Zill, on my desktop system too. But not on SolydXRPi. It was there but it's gone after updating. It may well be that Arjen had no time to correct the RPi packages, which is understandable.

Sorry, I didn't realise this bug report was about the Raspberrry Pi. I thought from the earlier posts it was also a problem with the main edition. :?

Either way, if anyone has "lost" this icon it can be downloaded again from my post above.

J'ai fait une réinstallation de SolydX EE 9 64 avec une dernière version 'solydxee_9_64_201607.iso' après un repartionnement de mon disque dur.
J'ai fait toutes les mise à jour nécessaire...et aussi sur cette version l'icône de Menu Whisker était grisé et j'ai remis l'icône manuellement.
Ce matin une mise à jour de 'solydx-system-adjustments-9' est passé et offrant un nouveau design très réussi du tableau de bord.

I checked this on an old SolydX VM and indeed, the problem was fixed and the SolydX whisker menu item stayed (or in that case, changed from the very old one to the recent one). So it's just the RPi repo that still has the buggy code.

@san-claudio: Your whisker menu icon looks like the standard xfce-whisker icon, so it's still generic and you have to reapply the correct one manually - whichever the correct one will be in SolydX9. I don't like really the grey/grey look of the panel ... colours are easier to describe if you do remote support over the phone line. But that's another topic.

The icon is in the adjustments package. Try to purge the old one before installing the adjustments-8 package. I found that the ARMHF packages are not always handled the same by dpkg as it would on a regular system.

Re: Lost icons on SolydX

So on san-claudios EE system the menu icon ist still gone. Have you followed my directions given in No. 3 of the post above https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.ph ... 705#p64623 and changed the drop-down menu to "all icons"? That's how I found the icon.

Looking at this long "click here, click there" explanation, it would be much easier to have a comand like "mousepad this-config-file" - but I don't know where the right whisker config file is.

1. Cliquez droit sur l'espace où l'icône est absente et choisissez "Propriétés"
2. Cliquez ensuite sur la place à côté de "Symbole" où l'icône devrait être.
3. Une fenêtre s'ouvre où vous avez besoin d'utiliser le menu déroulant pour choisir "toutes les icônes" (important !).
4. Puis faites défiler vers le bas jusqu'à ce que vous voyez l'icône pour SolydX (classées par ordre alphabétique), faites un clic-gauche dessus et cliquez sur "OK".
5. Cliquez sur "Fermer" dans la fenêtre "Propriétés" et l'icône devrait être ici.

Veuillez rendre compte si cela a fonctionné ou non.

Oui j'ai déjà lu le fil et je ne trouve pas l'icône de Menu Whisker autre que la standard, comme c'est classé par ordre alphabétique si vous avez le nom exact de l'icône sinon j'irai le chercher dans une Live mais je pense toujours que cet icône n'existe pas...

Et si la confirmation de la non existence de l'icône il faudrait la charger et je n'ai pas d'idée sur le sujet...

I see your mistake: In the first line of the window you have on your screenshot you need to click the dropdown menu and change to : All Icons. The icons name is solydx-flat.png or solydx.png.

Je vois votre erreur : Dans la première ligne de la fenêtre, que vous avez sur votre capture d'écran, vous devez cliquer sur le menu déroulant et devez changer "Icônes d'application" à "Toutes les icônes". Le nom d'icônes est solydx-flat.png ou solydx.png.

Can't somebody please come up with the correct config file that needs to be changed?

On my SolydX stable system it seems to be "button-icon=solydx" in "~/.config/xfce4/panel/whiskermenu-9.rc".

This file is derived from "/etc/skel/.config/xfce4/panel/whiskermenu-9.rc". However, this file shows "button-icon=solydx-flat" because this file can be edited by the package maintainer whereas the user's version should only be edited by the user.

J'ai 'button-icon=solydx'. Je précise que je suis sur une SolydX EE 9 64bit.

zill: Thank you.

san-claudio: Excusez-moi d'insister autant, mais ce fait évident que l'icône est certainement toujours disparus. Nous devons demander à schoelje l'icône qu'il veut utiliser à l'avenir. Peut-être que vous pouvez utiliser l'icône "distributor-logo-solydx" pour l'instant.

arjen: On (some?) EE the old icon (solydx and solydx-flat) still seems to be missing and the config file in /etc/skel is still unchanged. Do you intent to use "distributor-logo-solydx" in the future? Or another one?
And just fyi zill has something called "-9" on his stable system - no problem, really just fyi.
