Hey artists,

the new gdm has a nice and easy way to turn on HighContrast / LargePrint themes.
You can see screenshots of it here:

http://people.redhat.com/mclasen/hicontrast1.png
http://people.redhat.com/mclasen/hicontrast2.png

Unfortunately, as the screenshots show, a number of the icons that gdm
uses don't have
HighContrast versions, which makes the experience a bit less awesome
than it could be.

The list of required icons is fairly short, so it seems doable to
reach a 100% accessible login screen, as far as icons are concerned:

emblem-default
media-playback-pause
view-refresh
system-shutdown
preferences-desktop-accessibility (this may just need to be scaled down)
go-home
preferences-desktop-locale
preferences-desktop-keyboard
session-properties (not in the screenshots)


Matthias

Hi!
Regarding the icons used in the buttons, I don't think the buttons
should use any icons at all, as the word clearly speaks for itself and
the icons used currently only lead to confusion (and uglyness).

I filed a bug on this a while ago [1]

Regarding the other icons, it seems that we have all the icons you
listed, except preferences-desktop-keyboard (and possibly
session-properties, couldn't find it) in the HighContrast-SVG
folder/theme [2].
I'm not sure what the status is on that set though. Calum or Luca should
know.

Andreas,

that is great to hear. But the HighContrast theme still ships with

IconTheme=HighContrast

Should that be changed to HighContrast-SVG for 2.24 then ?

I don't think we're quite ready to do that yet, and we'd probably want
to create a corresponding Inverse SVG theme before we switched. But
it's not too far off, and we probably should make it a goal to try and
switch over for 2.26.


However, I'm happy to add PNG versions of the ones we're missing for
gdm (created from the SVG versions, where applicable), and add them to
the regular High Contrast icon themes for 2.23.91.


Cheeri,
Calum.

You probably want to remove all those big red dots before doing so, too...

That would be fantastic.

Thanks, Calum

The red dots should were only ever supposed to appear in devel
releases, but I'm not sure if that's still the case... the Makefile
magic may have broken at some point. I'll look into that as well...

Just doing this now... shouldn't the 'session-properties' icon be
called 'preferences-system-session' these days, though?

(In which case, the icon already exists in the high contrast themes...
but 'session-properties' isn't in the list of legacy icon filenames,
so the two aren't currently being symlinked.)
