Adwaita Legacy released

https://archlinux.org/packages/extra/any/adwaita-icon-theme-legacy/

The GNOME team caved in and reverted their complete removal of the classical GTK3 theme.
Many non-GNOME apps relied on it, and as a result, they were broken on many systems.

Who would have thought that these guys would listen to the community for once?

    Why does arch force this dependency when installing the normal adwaita icon theme? So much for le minimal distro.

      To prevent every non-gnome software and desktop environment from breaking? This makes every GTK program and environment safer and is only redundant to Gnome users. Complain to Gnome devs about it, not package maintainers.

      Arch just follows upstream. GNOME made one inherit from the other.

    No version of Adwaita was good. They seem to (intentionally?) pick the absolute worst aspects of yesterday's GUI aesthetics and then build a whole theme off that and call it "Adwaita."

      Since 2011 gnome has been all about ripping off ideas from Apple/macos, without understanding why those ideas made sense in the context they appropriated them from, resulting in a shitty half baked mess that's mediocre at best and unusable on average

        It was like this 20 years ago though. I remember using Gnome from the shrinkwrapped Suse 6.1 box set and it looked hideous and sucked up all my RAM even then.

          hmm I do remember gnome 2 had quite a lot of weird design flaws and issues too. Like that "spatial view" in the file browser which I remember was the default at one point. I'm not sure what the frick they were thinking about that, maybe it was trying to rip off Mac OS 9 or something, but it just goes to show that the gnome development team pretty much never had a sane head on their shoulders, though 2011 definitely marks the point where it went from 'bad' to 'much worse'

            Yeah it felt like they were trying pre 2011. After that it honestly felt like intentional sabotage. Gnome 3 was enough to convince me Debian's "sane" defaults were no longer sane.

        Tell me how is it dear gayman that gnome is yet better in the aspects that really matter, not even a mouse / keyboard on macos is enough since they planned to shove the trackpad on all of their non ios systems.

    Yeah, it was only after subjecting Nate Graham (KDE dev) to a humiliation ritual and being unbelievably obstinate buttholes about the problem. He had to explain his position about 10 times while the GNOME devs just rudely pretended to not understand what he was talking about and called him wrong.

    They backtracked on a decision that completely hosed their OS? Wow! They've finally come to Jesus!

    This is how the issue was treated in the beginning, btw.

      That's exactly the shitty attitude many Gnome devs usually have. I use Gnome as my DE, but they seriously need to examine their arrogant behaviour, apparently the corpo CoC did not help with that.
