Just a note from me: This breaks try icon compatibility in e.g. Budgie. Which is why I haven't updated it yet.
Then again, Riot sneaked the same change in without me noticing, so it's probably not such a huge deal. Just a bit annyoing.

I've been holding off on updating Mailspring to 1.7.4 because since it's release there have been a massive up-tick in in issues on Mailspring's Github page and 1.7.4 appears to break the ability to add new IMAP accounts. I'm following the issues closely however and I'll keep this thread up-to-date if there are changes and update once the issues are fixed.

I have no idea as to why you are running in to these issues (can't reproduce myself), but I would recommend doing the following:

  • Remove /home/alexander/.config.
  • Reinstall brave using sudo eopkg it --reinstall brave.

I have pushed a new update, see D7866, hopefully this can bring some fixes for you (chromium update might bring some necessary fixes, hard to tell).

After updating to the latest version in the unstable repository I can confirm that I now only have one breeze-cursor option and it works in Flatpak apps. However, after updating breeze my system reverted to Adwaita (after a reboot) and I had to reinstall the breeze-cursor theme through eopkg to get it to show up in budgie desktop settings.
