Mint-Y: Pale fullcolor action icons #197
Some applications are still using fullcolor icons instead of symbolic icons. It's not reasonable to think we can patch them all. We ship three variations of Mint-Y themes:
As a compromise and to make icons visible on all themes, we currently ship with action fullcolor icons which are pale grey. The good news is that they're visible everywhere. The bad news is that they don't look good anywhere.
Ideally, in the picture above, the icons would be much darker on the light menu, and much lighter in the dark toolbar. This isn't possible with fullcolor icons though.
Solution 1 (Rejected)
Switch to a colourful set of fullcolor action icons.
Solution 2 (Accepted)
We could also disable icons in menus, but if people re-enabled them, Mint-Y-Darker would look broken.
