Thread: Gnome: Icons are missing here and there

    Default Gnome: Icons are missing here and there

    I have not used OpenSUSE for some time, but I am running 11.4 32 bit on my laptop now. The system runs fine and stable, but I am surprised to find icons missing for a few applications. They've never been there, like if they are missing from the rpm they are installed from. What's up with that? TIA.

    where did you get these RPMs with missing icons? and, how did you
    install them?

    maybe they were not packaged for "suse", but for some other distro?

    if so, you might try uninstalling those, and then use packages found
    here: http://software.opensuse.org/search

    careful: unless you know why you want to, don't use any source there
    including factory or "gnome 3"

    or, maybe you don't have to uninstall what you have already...(i don't
    know what you installed or what it put where)

    using sources packaged _for_ openSUSE from that page can be downloaded
    and install via the command line or i'd recommend YaST...and, you can
    just click on the "1-Click Install" link"....but, if you do, then choose
    to not leave repos enabled afterwards..

    If you have the updated gtk2-tools package (2.22.1-13.15.1) run

    sudo /sbin/SuSEconfig --module gtk2

    Hi.
    My repository list looks like this:
    Code:
    > zypper ls
    # | Alias             | Name                       | Enabled | Refresh | Type

    Contrib: Index of /repositories/openSUSE:/11.4:/Contrib/standard
    Fglrx: Index of /mirror/ati/openSUSE_11.4
    Packman: Index of /pub/linux/packman/suse/11.4

    Somehow Virtualbox is version 4.0.4, but official version is 4.0.6.

    gparted icon got solved with a reboot, I've seen fresh packages missing icons before - so I guess it's normal. But I still don't have task bar icon for Chromium and virtualbox guest shortcut.

    If you have the updated gtk2-tools package (2.22.1-13.15.1) run

    sudo /sbin/SuSEconfig --module gtk2
    Thank you for tip, but it didn't help.

    Got a warning:

    sudo SuSEconfig --module gtk2

    Did you upgrade from an older version? If so which?
