There's no reason to arbitrary use smaller icons I guess ;-) - it looks ugly in the modern desktop environments. I'll attach the most trivial approach - maybe it makes sense to remove parts of that code for good, I don't know...

What desktop environment are we talking exactly ? On KDE (3.5 or 4) the icon appears in the task bar and on the upper left (the window menu). Both Icons are considerably smaller than 48 pixel. The same is true for gnome. This is based on OpenSuSE 11 (you may have heard about it ;-) ) So why not use the icons that were designed for small sizes, if they are most often used ?
Comment 4 kendy 2008-10-21 16:27:35 UTC
pl: Here, if you eg. point the mouse pointer over a taskbar, you get a considerably bigger version of the icon; with the unpatched OOo, it looks quite ugly - I'll attach a screenshot. Affects both KDE 3 and 4, and gnome as well (though I don't remember where exactly I saw that).
Comment 6 philipp.lohmann 2008-10-21 16:59:36 UTC
I see, it makes the bigger images nicer at cost of the small ones which are now downsampled. OK, will commit. Is there a way to set both sets of icons ?

committed in CWS vcl96
Comment 8 kendy 2008-10-21 17:20:46 UTC
pl: So - I did not know, but asked Lubos Lunak, the KWin maintainer ;-) It is possible to set the icon in various sizes, but not with the code we have there now. He pointed me to the the method NETWinInfo::setIconInternal() from http://websvn.kde.org/*checkout*/trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kdeui/windowmanagement/netwm.cpp that could be reused (see the license at the top). A bit info about this is in _NET_WM_ICON part of http://standards.freedesktop.org/wm-spec/wm-spec-latest.html#id2552223 .
Comment 9 philipp.lohmann 2008-10-21 17:34:15 UTC
oh, interesting. I always thought that property also set only one icon size. I misunderstood the array to be of RGBA+2*CARD32 where it is actually an array of such arrays. I'll create a followup task (issue 95278) so we can support this property.
