Description Waldo Bastian 2006-08-10 13:42:29 UTC
needs investingation, needs test coverage
Comment 1 Tom Whipple 2006-08-10 15:44:21 UTC
In SUSE 10.0/Gnome 2.12.0, SVG files themselves are not previewed properly. For
example, when we look at the tests/icons directory, the red-SVG.svg file shows
up in the file browser as a big black box, rather than the text "SVG" that is
seen when the document is opened in Inkscape.

xdg-utils-usecases/t.12-svg_icon_render is (about to be) checked in to address
this case.

I have updated the SVG file to be less inkscape specific and now it shows up 
more often but many older versions of both gnome and kde still lack proper SVG
