thing that gets used by Unity. The only problem is that skype is in the
partner repo, and it isn't there in Precise yet. You can report bugs
against things in the partner repo
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/skype but as they are mostly
in the binary and not fixable I don't think anyone looks at them. This
one in particular is bug #937975 and as it is a packaging issue I think
a patch could be made to fix it in theory, given that you can find a
high resolution Skype trademark logo that isn't a re-draw by some random
person on the internet and can be used.
Hi to all. I have noticed that some icons are at very low resolution.
I refer to these cases:
a) skype icon in the dash: it really seams a very small icon, at low
resolution, which was zoomed in many times.
b) libreoffice-pack icons (write, calc, impress) in this situation: I
usually reduce the size of the icons on the launcher from 48 to 36
pixels. It happens that libreoffice icons appear in very low
resolution. This doesn't happen to all the other icons, such as U1,
Ubuntu Software Center, the Home Folder...
I think that this happens because skype and libreoffice aren't native
of the Gnome Environment. Did you think about a solution?
It is only a visual matter, but appearance is now very important,
when talking about DEs.
