Description Axel Krebs 2013-01-10 21:39:26 UTC
in BQM, the user can interrupt/stop a work progress by clicking the BLACK RECTANGULAR icon 

IN society, it is an recognised standard to us worldwide the same sa,mbol, namly an REDE OCTAEDER.
For visual clearity, I strongly suggest the use well known and standardized symbol as used worlwide, one can see at <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_sign>.

This well help intuively run (resp. stop) BQM

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use BQM
2. try to stop BQM- the search begins
3. when found, you may click tghe right icon. (if you find ;-)
Actual Results:  
not intuively, but unknown visual symbolics

Hi Axel

This icon is universally used in KDE everywhere. I dont think it can be changed for just one manager in digiKam.

@Gilles, what do you think?

Hi Smit:

thank you for your considerations. I thought it would be a strong
_visual_ meaning, if using internationally standardized signs,
everybody gets to know some day.

Especially for a strong graphics program as digiKam stand for.

Of course: many other technical issue might be much more important than
this issue.

Smit is right. We use Oxygen icon sets when it's possible. This one come from Oxygen, it's not defined by digiKam.
