Panel - some launcher icons are dark despite being light...

So I got an update from Manjaro yesterday and it I create a custom launcher for any of the XFCE panels, then even if I select a light icon, it becomes dark. This was not the case before this update. Here is a  video to show what I mean: https://videos.trom.tf/w/6a1qSo1k7JCaKWRSU9NyjR

Why is this happening? Any idea? I changed themes and icon packs and still happens.

What was updated? Have you tried rolling things back to see if you can identify the culprit package?

Also, what do the following return:

xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/IconThemeName
locate favorite-genres-amarok | grep $(xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/IconThemeName)

xfwm4 updated. But not the icons theme or the desktop theme.

The output of those commands are:

[tio@tio ~]$ xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/IconThemeName
Zafiro
[tio@tio ~]$ locate favorite-genres-amarok | grep $(xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/IconThemeName)
bash: locate: command not found

"Have you tried rolling things back to see if you can identify the culprit package?"

I'd like not to do that since my machine is used quite a lot for many things.

Its interesting that the icon you are trying to set, "favorite-genres-amarok" doesn't exist in the version of the Zafiro icon theme I downloaded. Where did you get that icon theme? It exists in the Papirus icon theme though.

Also, what is the content of your ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css and ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini?

Hmm interesting since I've been using Zafiro icons for a while now and it worked well. Also how come I see the icons in the panel when I try to select them, and I see them as light colored, then they become dark after I select them. I got the icon pack from https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/zafi … theme-git/

~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

  /* Taller or wider buttons */
  #docklike-plugin button {
    min-height: 48px;
    min-width: 48px;
  }
  
  /* Brightly colored buttons */
  #docklike-plugin .open_group {
    background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
  }
  #docklike-plugin .active_group {
    background-color: rgba(140, 140, 140, 0.3);
  }
  #docklike-plugin .hover_group {
    background-color: rgba(140, 140, 140, 0.3);

  }

~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

I have no such file.

Can you replicate the problem with a different icon theme?

With some Papirus icon themes, but some work. And with the Breeze icon theme. Like I can select a white/light icon but when I click save, it displays it as black. Why could such things happen?

Re: Panel - some launcher icons are dark despite being light...

A couple of reasons come to mind. The icon in the icon selector dialog is of one size and in the launcher dialog, another size. Perhaps the icon theme does not have the correct colour icon for the smaller size.

A second reason could be a bug in one of the graphics libraries.

That being said, I am unable to replicate this problem. I'm on Arch and I'm testing using the zafiro icon theme as installed from the AUR. But again, Zafiro does not have the icon you are trying to select so I'm not sure why its showing up in that dialog. Where did you get the Zafiro icon theme from - how did you install it?

Also, can you try creating a second test account on your computer to see if you can replicate the problem there?

Ok so I realized if I increase the size of icons in the panel they switch from dark to light and vice-versa. This must be an issue with the icon pack. I reported it here https://github.com/zayronxio/Zafiro-icons/issues/95 . Interestingly that it came just right after the latest manjaro update but the icon pack did not get updated.
