Two questions in one single post o.O
- What about we start to renaming the icon files?
- They all have a _icon suffix. Is it really necessary?
- They don’t follow the Icon Naming Specification of FreeDesktop. We aren’t ‘obliged’ to but…
- Synfig Studio place its icons inside
share/pixmaps/synfigstudiosystem folder. I believe it’s wrong (at least thes days). The Icon Theming Specification mentions this folder as the last folder to search for icons & themes and states the following too: “Applications may further add their own icon directories to this list”, giving us an idea that it’s not the place for app-specific icons.
In fact, Gnome suggests to use something like
/usr/share/org.gnome.YourApp. However, almost none of the apps in my machine use the
org.xxxxx.yyyystyle. In our case, it would be
/usr/share/synfigfor other resources, like sound, ui and plugin files. Why don’t use it for the icons and other graphics?
/usr/share/synfig/iconsfor icons (and follow the FreeDesktop Icon Theming specs inside it), and
/usr/share/synfig/imagesfor other images like splash screen and logo.
