Fixing the icon regression in Pop!_OS 19.04
`git clone --single-branch master_cosmic https://github.com/pop-os/icon-theme.git`
throws this error: "fatal: repository 'master_cosmic' does not exist".
Moving the argument to the end worked for me however:
`git clone https://github.com/pop-os/icon-theme.git --branch master_cosmic`.
Thanks for the blog post! Nice to have the old icons back.
@andreas Ah, fuck, left the wrong command in the post, sorry. Will fix when I’m at my computer. Thank you for the heads up and apologies for the inconvenience.
@aral no worries!
@aral while I totally agree with you comment about the "icon vomit soup" you are presented with after installing Pop!_OS 19.04 I also think it is worth giving a thought to the reasoning behind this decision.
Especially as I think the driver behind it is actually consistency. Reading the release notes system76 realized that the consistency efforts need to be driven by the developers of the desktop environment. Distributions (or 3rd party apps to some degree) have to follow design guidelines.
