As we can see in the attached screenshot, the icon has a right arrow barely visible.

That's just the Plasma logo. :)

Looks like this icon is color-scheme aware for the 16 and 22px sized, but not the larger sizes. That should be fixed. Or else we could add an outline around the monochrome part for the larger sizes, maybe.

Quoting Nate:

> Normally we use color-aware monochrome icons which would adapt as needed.
> However this is a non-color-aware colorful icon that just happens to be dark
> without a light outline, so its visibility against dark backrounds is poor.

> Moving to breeze-icons. I guess we could make the dark

start-here-kde: Make icon adaptable to dark themes
FIXED-IN: 5.91

Make the dark arrow part of the plasma logo change to white when used with a
dark theme. The two icon sizes are also made more alike color-wise.
The changes include:

- sizes 64 & 96 using the same kind of grey,
- the dark part being color adaptive to dark themes,
- size 64 no longer using the accent color for the bottom dot.
