Gimp 2.10 rev 2 - missing icons

Hello !

Installed gimp 2.10 rev 2 on windows 7 64b ( french settings).
When gimp is launched, some icons are completly missing ( new layer e.g) and replaced by single dot, whatever themes or icons set I choose !

Gimp is located in :
C:\Programmes Portables\Image\GIMP 2.10 Portable

Can you help me ?

GIMP Bug

This is a GIMP bug that also occurs with the locally installed package due to its new vector-based icons and not correctly detecting your screen's settings. Head to Edit and then Preferences and then select Interface - Icon Theme. You may be able to keep Symbolic but select Custom Icon Size and then choose Medium. If that doesn't work, just select either Color or Legacy and that should fix it for now.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thank you.. but it does not change anything !!!
Some icons still doesn't appear.
I even tried to manually fix the "monitor resolution"... but no changes ! A lot of icons are still not visible !

Menus vs Toolboxes

This workaround will fix the icons showing in the toolboxes but icons in the menus will stay broken.

Icons are broken in menus AND toolboxes.

I know, Workaround

I know that. You're using the default Symbolic icon set which is broken on some Windows machines like yours. Both the toolbox and menu icons will be broken. The workaround I mentioned above should let you fix the toolbox icons. I said to try resizing, which may still fail, and if it does, switch back to Legacy.

Tried all !

hello !
I've tried all what you said (changing icon size, fall back to legacy,.. ) I have tried all the icon options and all theme options possibles, one by one, even manually set the monitor resolution to a correct dpi, restart gimp many time... a few changes occur, some icons are fixed, some others still not ... whatever I do !

On the other side, I've found another gimp portable version made by another person ( don't know if I can cite his name or site here, so I don't ).
It seems that he solve the problem by convert and adding all SVG icons in a PNG version ( saw it in icons folder ).
But he certainly change something else in Gimp, because coying its icon folder content to yours icon folder didn't make gimp choose PNG icons.

Thank you for reading and tried to help me Wink !

Here, Gimp screenshot with Legacy theme and icon size set to medium and monitor resolution set to 90 dpi :

Looks like this issue has

Looks like this issue has been just diagnosed and fixed upstream:
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/1563

P.S. Following the advice given in the bug report I added the key HKCU\Software\Classes\.svg and set "Content Type"="image/svg+xml" there which worked for me.

This issue seems to be fixed

This issue seems to be fixed in 2.10 rev 4, any indication when this will be released as a portable app?
