I experience this bug with i3-wm-iconpatch 4.17.1-1: i3 crashes when starting a horizontal/vertical split container inside a tabbed window. See this issue: In the issue, it was demonstrated that the bug appears when the icon patch is applied. Something in seems to cause the bug.

@edrex: should be fixed now

The icons don't seem to scale with the title bar font size. On my hidpi laptop screen with .Xresources: Xft.dpi: 196, they are microscopic. Maybe make the icons scale together with the title bar font?

4.14.1 has been released with a bunch of bugfixes. The patch just needs to be rebased, but nothing more.

@mid-kid @mickael9 I'm not able to take a look at the patch right now, but I just added both of you as co-maintainers. You should be able to push the new PKGBUILD and patch now.

I rebased mickael9's patch:
for i3-4.14.

Here it is:

Just applied it. Everything's working on my end now. Thanks.

@sw9 Thanks a lot. I knew something was wrong with the alpha but couldn't figure out what it was.

I've updated my patch (and integrated @mid-kid's changes)
(raw patch: )

@cornholio can you integrate it please? :)

I've installed this patch, and for some icons, there is a white background showing when there shouldn't be one. I believe this is because _NET_WM_ICON reports the icon using straight alpha but Cario uses pre-multiplied alpha (this issue has occurred with other similar projects Thus, src values needs to be multiplied by the alpha, before cairo_image_surface_create_for_data is called.

@mid-kid would you consider sending me a pull request so I can integrate your changes?
