What is it that generates the **absolutely massive** /usr/share/icons/?
I've had a hunt through "requires:" in setup.ini but got lost.
$ du -sh /usr/share/icons
These icon directories have a _lot_ of symlinks, did you perhaps copy your
installation and flatten them?
$ du -sh /usr/share/icons/
I did not intentionally flatten them, but I must have: 1.5G >> 114M.
Unflattening is presumably not possible (how would it be driven?) so: I had better re-install and hope that multiple symlinks are recovered. â
Can you say what original package installation might have induced this directory?
These commands will give you a hint.
On my system 2 packages only have more the 5000 files
$ zgrep -c "usr/share/icons/" /etc/setup/*.gz |grep -v ":0$"
$ du -hs /usr/share/icons/*
