Description Björn Michaelsen 2015-10-27 12:29:26 UTC

There are icons used in the help that are not used in the product itself, which is rather unhelpful: I dont think we want icon themes styles contain helpcontent.

In the case at hand the fix is simple:

- The help file shouldnt use the (now unused) quickstarter icons as generic "app icons" anyway. In general it is unhelpful if help files use icons to describe content other than the feature where is icon is used in the product too.
- There are icons referring to the apps available already, e.g. at:


  that should be preferred here: They are even much better quality.

So the Easy Hack here to refer to the res/writer128.png instead in Help and then removed the unused icons from the themes.

A patch was merged (31504c85f13861c40bdab6db0b6276f16662a166), but again without properly referring to the bug. Sigh.
