Description agapito 2022-12-11 13:32:32 UTC
breeze-icons 5.101 added a new simplescreenrecorder icon. On Archlinux, after upgrading to KDE Frameworks 5.101, the recording and pause icons of the program have disappeared from the system tray, so there is no way to know visually whether the program is recording or not.

Can reproduce.

I wonder if we can fix this without reverting the change to add a themed icon...
Comment 2 agapito 2022-12-16 15:20:39 UTC
To be honest, the new icon looks too much like the old one. It doesn't solve anything and has also created a problem for current users of the program.

Revert "Add SimpleScreenRecorder icon"

This reverts commit 498af3e6d57bab73bd0f3cca339c946a61d587e0.

This breaks the tray icon changing its appearance based on the
recording/not recording status of the app.

The Breeze version of this icon is not thaaaaaat different from the
original, so on balance it's probably not worth it if we can't fix the
issue, which is not easily possible.
