Linux icon changes in 4.1.6

Andrea Pescetti-2
This is not necessarily a bug, but I'd like to check on this: on
Linux-64 (I haven't tried on other systems), if you are editing a file
in Writer you'll get two different toolbar icons in 4.1.5 and 4.1.6.

Comparison screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/wtNhT9k

In short:
- 4.1.5 (left): the Writer icon is shown
- 4.1.6 (right): the generic ("orb") icon is shown

Was this done on purpose? I believe the old ones are more informative,
as it usually happens to have, say, a Writer and a Calc document open at
the same time.

If your system does not come with a bottom toolbar, you will still
notice the difference in the top toolbar by switching between the two
instances.

On the other hand, the new high-resolution icons look really nice, as I
already noted.

Regards,
   Andrea.

Are you talking about the desktop panel? I use Xubuntu (18.10 on 64bit) and I do see the Writer/Calc/... icons, not the orb.

I see the difference more or less in every context where an icon is
associated with the window in GNOME (so Xubuntu may be different).

So for example:
- in the bottom bar listing open windows (if you have it)
- in the top bar next to the title of the active window
- in the Alt-Tab dialog to switch windows see
https://imgur.com/a/EM3yTpU where both 4.1.6 and 4.1.5 were open on an
empty Writer document.

This is not a bug, even though one might want to mention it in the
Release Notes as a minor UI change.

Regards,
   Andrea.

Which desktop environment do you use?

Linux has so many different ones and on Ubuntu 18.04 (Gnome) it looks
like this [1]. The main icon is the Orb and all applications are grouped
under it.

This is not caused by the icon change itself but by an additional entry
in the startcenter.desktop file.

"StartupWMClass=OpenOffice 4.1.6"

If you remove it you get the "old" behavior (but also a blurry icon when
doing Alt-Tab).

Somehow on purpose, as it looked OK on all systems I could test...

Do you have by any chance something like "icon grouping" enabled?

I would only call them higher resolution icons... ;-)

In XFCE (Xubuntu), I see:
- Each application icon in the Alt+Tab dialog (no orb and Writer and Calc icons if I have such documents open)
- Each application icon in the desktop panel, side by side, with no orb.
So there was no change with XFCE.
