#681 closed enhancement/feature request (fixed)

Please rename the "xpm" folder to "images"

Reported by: pini Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: version 0.5.1
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: normal Keywords: xpm, png, res
Cc:, jkoankerich@…



Since it holds many images in other formats than xpm (svg, svgz, png) the name "xpm" isn't anymore appropriate for the images folder.

Especially at installation stage it would make more sense to have these files installed into - say - /usr/share/navit/images instead of /usr/share/navit/xpm.

The attached patch renames the 'xpm' dir to 'icons' and has a fix in gui_qml.cpp to get this dir path from the function graphic_icon_path().

I absolutly support this request. But as it includes some more work (updating build scripts and check issues with distro packages), I recommend to focus this on the next big feature release

Hello Pini As you can see in PR: we now have moved the xpm folder to icons which really makes more sense since we try to get rid of xpm icons and use svg in future.

Also because you are the debian maintainer of navit it would be nice if it would be possible that you look at and say if cmake/cpack component install would be suitable for you so we could work more together with you and publish updates more frequently in the future. I know that this is of topic, but I hope I could get you contacted this way.
