Installation

optdepends in the Dolphin PKGBUILD should be expanded on, report this on the bugtracker. -- Alad (talk) 20:42, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Out of the box, Dolphin renders no icons. There's a Troubleshooting entry, but perhaps this should be moved up to installation? I can't imagine many people actually want dolphin with no icons. Or is this perhaps a missing dependency and qt5ct needs to be added as a dependency? WhyNotHugo (talk) 20:34, 5 August 2022 (UTC)

The Qt 5 configuration tool isn't what makes it work, it's using it to set an icon theme. That tool shouldn't be a necessary; it sounds like there is a deeper cause of this invalid initial state. If nobody else finds out, I will probably look into it while I work on Qt because this issue should be affecting other applications. -- CodingKoopa (talk) 19:38, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
It seems that when no icon is explicitly defined, Dolphin renders with no icons, rather than just use _any_ icon theme. I mentioned this in #kde and it was suggested that I report this kind of issue upstream, so I have at https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=457581 My familiarity with Qt/KDE is limited, so any additional knowledge is welcome.

Great! They appreciate it when people file bug reports. I didn't know this pertains to non-KDE setups, that makes more sense. -- CodingKoopa (talk) 20:14, 10 August 2022 (UTC)
