Avogadro Low Resolution Icon in Arch Linux

Salutations,

I was wondering if Avogadro could update their icon to either a .svg
icon or just a higher resolution one.

See bug report :

I can take a look at this, and will see if I can improve it. The
report doesn’t reference what version you are referring to, but I
presume 1.1.1?

Thanks,

Marcus

To Marcus,

Yes I am using Avogadro-1.1.0-6 (the -6 is mostly for Arch Linux changes
usually due to recompiling against a new boost library). Thanks for the
quick response~

We have both a 512x512 icon and an SVG version, so this shouldn’t be too hard to fix.

https://github.com/cryos/avogadro/blob/master/avogadro/src/icons/avogadro.png
https://raw.github.com/cryos/avogadro/master/avogadro/src/icons/avogadro.svg

Or in the source tree, these are avogadro/src/icons/avogadro.*

Does the .desktop file just need some patching? (Sorry, I’ve never used Arch.)

Hope that helps,

Yeah, I use Arch everyday for development so I don’t mind patching this.

Just to be clear, the .desktop file will of course affect all Linux
systems, but I don’t think this will be an issue.

To Geoff,

Quick responses are excellent! I found that the Arch Linux icon points
to /usr/share/pixmaps/avogadro-icon.png (which is indicated in the
desktop file as “avogadro-icon”). I also noticed that the avogadro
scalable icon isn’t in “/usr/share/icons/scalable/”. I think if the
avogadro scalable icon was placed in that folder and the desktop file
was updated to point to it, it should solve the problem.

Mark
