Subject: [gentoo-dev] www-client/chromium icon theme dependencies, help needed
Date: Fri, 25 Feb 2011 15:03:37
There is a bug about www-client/chromium icon theme dependencies
(, and I'm not quite sure
what's the best way to solve it.

The main issue is that in KDE only oxygen-icons work, and in XFCE
oxygen-icons *don't* work and one needs other icon themes installed
(which in turn don't work in XFCE).

Portage obviously doesn't know which DE the user is running (multiple
DE's may be installed on the system), so I don't see a way to create
"foolproof" dependencies.

The two approaches I'm thinking about are:

a) Drop any icon themes from RDEPEND, tell the user in pkg_postinst
about possible choices.

b) Add "kde" to IUSE, and then kde? ( kde-base/oxygen-icons ) !kde ( all
|| the || rest ) to RDEPEND.

What do you think? Do you have some better ideas?
