[Libreoffice-ux-advise] [Bug 124969] Dark theme option to read/view/write in LO.

Hmm, not so sure...

Currently the project maintains Sifr (Dark), and Breeze (Dark) both of which
are presentable on the 'Adwaita (dark)' theme. I just checked and for Fedora 31
with the Adwaita Dark shell, and for LibreOffice the (Automatic) icon theme
assigned is Breeze (Dark), not Tango.

There can never be LibreOffice provided 'Dark' versions of Tango--which is an
unsupported and incomplete icon theme, we've made some critical additions, but
adding a whole 'dark' mode theme is unlikely. Especially as no 'dark' theme was
"defined" for the Tango artwork guidelines [1]. So, should a Tango icon end up
as a fall back for other themes, it will always result in low contrast in a
'dark' theme.

We actually do not need to restart LibreOffice to get Statusbar icons to
update. You just exit any active module(s) (ending up back to Start Center) and
relaunch the module.

But I do agree the Statusbar should be able to refresh after change of icon
style, just like happens for toolbars/sidebar/menus/NB already. Something is
off in the Statusbar that it does not.
