[Manjaro Testing]Spyder 3 broken icons


#1

Hello, I am on Manjaro Testing branch. It appears that either though update (tried downgrading through pacman from version 3.3.1 to 3.2.8, but to no avail) I have broken some dependency that handles displaying of icons, probably some QT5, but |I cannot figure out which one. The resulting application instance looks as follows:

Can you point me somewhere I could try fixing a specific dependency or is this more likely to result in bug report? I hope this is somewhat sufficient information, thanks in advance!

Confirmed:

Package is from upstream, let me try the git version BRB.

:edit: and it is the same in the git version :frowning:


#3

Likely culprits?

qt5-webkit
python-pyqt5
gtk-update-icon-cache

#4

Yup, it has been reported already on github.


#5

The temporary solution for this problem is to change the icon theme to Spyder 2. Hopefully, this problem will be resolved in newer versions.

Thank you, especially @xircon and @dobedobedo, very helpful! Will monitor new versions to see if it gets fixed, in the meantime the solution to change to spyder 2 theme is an excellent suggestion. Just in case some poor soul finds this thread eons later and replies have been deleted (I know your pain very well):

  1. Go to Tools > Preferences
  2. General section > Appearance
  3. Scroll down to Interface subsection, change the Icon Theme to Spyder 2, it will ask to restart the application and upon restart, icons are working.

I think the thread can be locked now, any way to automaticaly do that without waiting the 6 months of possible necromancy as a user and thread creator? Don’t want to bother the moderators with this.

An there already is a poor, desperate soul…
