Weird issues with XFCE icons

Hello. I've noticed that after some update weird representation of some icons in XFCE appeared (see screenshot)

2017-11-0801-10-45.png

The icon for Power Manager (when on AC) become somewhat ugly (when I'm on UPS battery all displays fine) and icons for Steam, Discord, Remmina are very pale. My current icon theme is Elementary XFCE (from git). Changing the icon theme doesn't resolves the problem (with pale icons and with power manager icon)

Who can confirm the same situation? I have this on two workstations...

Arch Linux rolling, 4.13.11-1 x64, elementary-xfce-icons 0.9-1, libxfce4ui 4.12.1-2

I'm running Arch as well. I just installed the elementary Xfce icon set from the AUR and I'm not seeing this issue.

What's interesting is that the icon displayed is the empty battery icon. Perhaps this is an issue with upower. What does the following return?

upower -d

and icons for Steam, Discord, Remmina are very pale

I believe those apps control the display of their own icons. For example, remmina has an option in the preferences for a light or dark icon. If that is not enough, then to change that icon, you'll need to override them.

pacman -Ql remmina | grep icons

...will show you which icons are provided by the package and where they are placed.

And to confirm that something else strange might be going on, post back the contents of ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini.

Re: Weird issues with XFCE icons

Try commenting out the "gtk-icon-theme-name=Adwaita" line in both files and logging out and back in again.

Also check "/home/viktor/.gtkrc-2.0.mine" in case there is something similar there.

Re: Weird issues with XFCE icons

Commented these lines out in both files. .gtkrc-2.0.mine doesn't exists. After relogin no changes observed =\

EDIT: after changing icon theme to everything possible and enabling tray icon for Power Manager I can get the correct one but on next relogin icon reverts to strange red battery...

Re: Weird issues with XFCE icons

Keep checking "upower -d" with every change you make and see if the "icon-name" property changes for when its the right icon and the wrong icon.

Also, try renaming the ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini and logging out and back in again. Lets rule out these files interfering.

Re: Weird issues with XFCE icons

moved config files - they are not recreated after relogin

icon-name doesn't changes. I made search in all icons to find battery-missing-symbolic and found no icons with red battery with exclamation mark in no icon theme. all icons of that name just greyed batteries with question marks or crosses

I'm not sure why you are having this issue. Are all of the Xfce components running?

ps -e | grep xf

The symbolic part is stripped. Look at the icon file /usr/share/icons/elementary-xfce/panel/22/battery-missing.svg

Can you try creating another user account on your computer and logging in with that account to see if the problem persists?

Re: Weird issues with XFCE icons

Create a second account on your computer. Log in with that account and add the power manager plugin to the panel. Set both the icon and appearance themes to the same as your original account and check if the problem happens here.

Maybe gnome-power-manager is trying to launch.
If he is starting gnome services at start up (Settings >> Session and Startup >> Advanced tab), maybe he can check the Application Autostart tab to see if both gnome-power-manager and xfce4-power-manager are selected.
