[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#488308: xfce4-icon-theme: rodent theme disappears when gnome-icon-theme is installed

Package: xfce4-icon-theme
Version: 4.4.2-1
Severity: important

I have been using the rodent icon theme.  When I install gnome-icon-theme, after the next login,
the appearance of my desktop changes spontaneously to the gnome icon theme.  Switching the icon
theme in the User Interface Preferences back to Rodent does not change anything.

In my opinion installing a new theme package should not spontaneously change the appearance of an already
configured desktop, only provide more options in the themes menu.  It would be strange if the rodent icon theme
and the gnome icon theme and packages which depend on it, such as evince, were mutually exclusive.
Since I have no idea which package is actually causing this problem, and I have no idea what it's doing,
I'm filing this bug against xfce4-icon-theme, as that package is at least involved.  Please move this bug
to another package if necessary.

Kind regards,

Astrid de Wijn
