    Default All RPM installs Do Not Have Icons - What's going on?

    Hey guys, I have a little problem going on with my openSUSE 11.3 // GNOME computer. Whenever I install a RPM package, whether it be from a .rpm in my Downloads, etc. or from the zypper repositories, they never have an icon. I continuously have to go to Google and find an icon for my application and change the launcher's properties in my menu.

    Do any of you know why this is happening and how I may be able to fix it? It's getting a little tedious having to do this for everything that I install.. Thanks for any responses!

    I'm not 100% sure about what are you talking about. But probably you miss a gtk-update-icon-cache run.
    Just execute, as root,
    Code:
    SuSEconfig --module gtk2
    and they should appear.

    I'd like to make some icons DISAPPEAR! Some time back, while trying to get one app to use a certain icon, I changed ALL (shell scripts?) to that icon and don't know how to fix it.
