Evolution is missing icons

by Hans Schou 2006-08-18

After upgrading "world" in Gentoo all the icons in Evolution was a little red cross. I am not sure what the real problem and solution is but here is what I have discovered.

I am running:

By adding an extra configuration file in your home directory you can here specify what theme to use. A list of themes can be found with the command:

$ ls /usr/share/themes/*/pixmaps/arrow_right.png | cut -d / -f5

The only icon theme on my system was "Crux" so I used that. The other themes did not have any icons at all.

File: ~/.gtkrc-2.0

include "/usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"

style "user-font" {
        font_name = "Bitstream Vera Sans 10"

widget_class "*" style "user-font"

gtk-icon-theme-name = "Crux"
