robertjhey all, does anyone else feel that the battery icon looks good but is actually kinda hard to distinguish between the 40% & 20% demarcations?01:56
troy_srobertj: Probably.  A good thing to talk about in tango, as I think Human falls back to that for the battery icon.01:57
robertjtroy_s: I don't think so, it changes on mine, and in fact is even more difficult01:58
troy_srobertj: Look in /usr/share/icons/Human and see if you can find it, if not, it is a Tango icon.01:59
troy_srobertj: and then it becomes a tango issue.01:59
troy_srobertj: And you can always find the SVG, subtly modify it, and hope that it gets accepted.01:59
robertjtroy_s: I don't see it in there but it changes when I change icon theme between human and tango02:01
robertjahh apps/gpm-blah02:02
troy_srobertj: Ok02:02
troy_srobertj: So it is a human icon?02:03
robertjyes02:03
troy_srobertj: Head into the /scalable section and see if you can track it down in SVG format02:03
robertjHuman/22x22/apps02:03
troy_srobertj: From there, see if you can modify the svg colours a bit that might make it more useful.02:03
troy_srobertj: All you can do is try... sometimes one person's belief is a little different than anothers... and without a solid design direction, it is a relatively fickle choice.02:04
robertjtroy_s: no batteries in scalable02:04
robertjtroy_s: i'm also on a pretty high dpi display02:04
robertj1680x1050 on 15"02:04
troy_srobertj: Well that is a bloody bug... Canonical needs to get their shit together and get the fecking svg's out of IconFactory.02:05
robertjtroy_s: what is that thing inside the battery when it is charging anyway?02:06
robertjit looks like a small tree perhaps02:06
robertjbut at 22x22 it is hard to tell02:06
troy_srobertj: I can't really begin to discuss the bloody difficulties with design for a project such as Ubuntu, but I would possibly consider registering a bug.02:07
troy_srobertj: It seems the only attention is given to bugs.02:07
robertjtroy_s: I think the real deal is that the pixmaps < 32px, yellow isn't high enough contrast to show up well and so the whole thing needs to me more or less monochrome with a shade that matches the NetworkManager applet02:29
