MSN chat alt + tab icon looks pixeled

Reported by: cnicog Owned by: hbons

Version: 2.4.3 Keywords:


When you have an MSN chat going on and you alt tab, the little butterfly that shows is ugly and looks all pixeled. I hope I made myself clear :P

This is on windows xp (32 bit) at 1280 x 1024 resolution

Is this still an issue? Can this ticket be closed as there's been no response for over a year...

I'm going to guess that this is because (at least on my system) the Windows (large) window icon size is 32x32, GTK+ picks the closest window icon to that size it is given and uses that, and we give GTK+ 16x16, 22x22, and 48x48 versions of the protocol icons. Assuming what I'm seeing is what the original reporter meant, that the protocol icons in the alt-tab display look noticably blockier than icons for other applications.

We don't currently have 32x32 versions of the protocol icons so we would need to only offer the 16x16 and 48x48 versions for GTK+ (in the right order) in order to get GTK+ to pick the 48x48 icon currently.

I'm going to assign this to Hylke and ask for 32x32 protocol icons, once we get those we can add them in to the list and that should fix this (some code related discussion will need to happen at that point but until we get the new icons can't really do anything to fix this).
