Menu item appears OK in gnome here (on the Applications->Internet menu). Which
desktop are you using?

Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2005-07-05 09:19:32 UTC
Also, and this may be obvious but I have to ask: do you have the bittorrent-gui
package installed?

Comment 3 Axon 2005-07-05 10:09:36 UTC
I'm using GNOME desktop with the bittorrent-gui package installed. If it is any
help, I also have the LIVNA and Mono NRPMS YUM repos installed although I'm
fairly sure my packages are getting installed from Fedora extras.

I can provide screenshots if that is helpful.

Comment 4 Paul Howarth 2005-07-05 10:21:14 UTC
If you do a "rpm -qi bittorrent-gui" you can check the source of the package.
The one in extras for FC4 is version "4.0.2", release "1.fc4", and the build
host was "extras64".

There should be a file:
the presence of this file should result in there being a menu item available in
all desktops.

Sometimes (though I haven't been able to reproduce this) the menu item doesn't
appear until you've logged out and back in again after installing
bittorrent-gui. Did you only just install it?

Comment 5 Axon 2005-07-05 19:36:09 UTC
Please ignore: you were correct, restarting Gnome fixes this issue. Apologies
for wasting your time.

Comment 6 Paul Howarth 2005-07-07 08:51:37 UTC
I'll keep my eyes open for ways of getting the icon to appear without restarting
gnome, but in the meantime I'll close the bug.

Comment 7 Mark McLoughlin 2005-07-12 11:26:04 UTC

Ricardo: two questions, please:

  1) Did the menu item appear in the panel, but without an icon? Or did the
     menu item not appear in the panel at all?

  2) Does/did /usr/share/pixmaps/icon-theme.cache exist? If so, does removing
     that file fix the problem?

Comment 8 Axon 2005-07-12 11:38:00 UTC
> Did the menu item appear in the panel, but without an icon?

Yes :)

> Does/did /usr/share/pixmaps/icon-theme.cache exist?

Don't know: I'll try and re-install it tonight and check.

Comment 9 Mark McLoughlin 2005-07-13 13:42:01 UTC
So, this turned out to be a genuine bug with GtkIconTheme. See:

This should be fixed upstream soon and in rawhide when we get a new release.

Comment 10 Mark McLoughlin 2005-07-13 13:42:40 UTC
*** Bug 162765 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 11 Paul Howarth 2005-07-13 14:05:55 UTC
I've moved the icon to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps in cvs anyway. This
will show up in rawhide sometime after the extras build system starts working
again; FC3 and FC4 packages will come along once upstream releases a new
non-beta version, unless someone can persuade me that 4.1.x is stable enough for
the masses :-)
