Re: gtk-update-icon-cache scriptlet output?

recommends including scriptlet:

A consequence is that when/if gtk-update-icon-cache is not available, the
existing scriptlet generates error output.

2 fixes come to mind:
1. ignore all output: (line wrapped)
%{_bindir}/gtk-update-icon-cache %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor \ >& /dev/null || :

2. wrap, allow for real errors to display:
if [ -x %{_bindir}/gtk-update-icon-cache ]; then
   %{_bindir}/gtk-update-icon-cache --quiet %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor ||:
We have been following this 2 for most packages. well there is a requires touch operation above it, so KDE will picks up the new icons if gtk-update-icon-cache isn't installed.
Any opinions on which approach (1 or 2 or other) is a preferred solution
There is a lot of prior art for 2.
p.s.  Looking closer, it appears option 2 was in place at one time, but was
removed via
with comment:
Remove extraneous if [ -x PROGRAM ] (Not needed if the scriptlet also
uses ||:)
Ah, okay. Yea, so I would just revert that change. But really we should just get it out of post and rpm should run it automatically if an icon gets installed. I guess there isn't really an hooks to do that now, though.
