Hi

Something to consider.

Using BlueCurve icons as default in OOo is (IMO) not a god idea because: development of Bluecurve practically ceased, the theme is in maintenance mode and the Bluecurve set for OOo is incomplete, with very large gaps (untouched from the OOo 1.1.x era).

I think a better short-term solution for Fedora 7 is to make the default icon set "Industrial" with large icons (this theme is included in the package).

Caolan, I don't understand why you say redhat-artwork or gnome-themes could be tweaked to use the BlueCurve icons for OOo apps, OOo does not use the Gnome theming for icons, it has its own settings, which are controlled from the inside the application (or by the packager). All the themes are in share/config as .zip files and the setting to config the default in registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Common.xcu

Is this intended...? I preferred the fedora ones

It looks like the default Fedora GNOME theme is now "Fedora" which
inherits its icons from "Mist", and "Mist" doesn't have any
openoffice.org icons or inherit from one that does. So the fallback is
all the way back to the "vanilla" OOo icons, bypassing the previous
"BlueCurve" icons used by that theme and other inheriting themes like
Clearlooks.
The vanilla icons do look like crap, so hopefully either redhat-artwork
or gnome-themes could be tweaked to use the BlueCurve icons for OOo
apps.
