Thread: KDE plasma 5 icons and Styles are missing.

  1. #1

    Default KDE plasma 5 icons and Styles are missing.

    The KDE plasma5 default icons (menu icons,status notification icons,folder icons in dolphin,etc..) and native styles are missing in the plasma5 session after i installed xfce DE desktop(and changed session to plasma5 after using xfce session). Tried rebooting it doesnt fix. How to bring back the icons and styles back and make look plasma as how it was before ?

    System: Host: linux-90vq Kernel: 4.1.12-1-default x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: KDE Plasma 5.4.2
    Distro: openSUSE Leap 42.1

    Uninstall libqt5-qtct. This overrides KF5's platform/style plugin and causes the use of the Fusion theme (and no icons).

    And what happens to real qt5 apps if there is no qt5ct installed?

    See you

    What was the reason tho choose the name "libqt5-qtct" different to
    the name "qt5ct" from mainstream? This is really funny because the
    opensuse download servers offers a qt5ct package in this repo:

    download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/Utilities

    And yes, i compile this package for myself because i search the normal
    name )

    They use KF5's settings when run inside Plasma5.

    So how to configure Qt5 settings (theme, font, icons, etc.) under DE/WM without Qt integration after uninstalling it ?

    You cannot, without qtct.

    But as I wrote, qtct overrides KDE's/Plasma5's settings, including the widget style and icon theme (which can result in no icons at all).
    KDE (KF5) applications then use qtct's settings too, if it is installed.

    So pick your poison.

    Angry Re: KDE plasma 5 icons and Styles are missing.

    WTF now all of my KDE Icons are missing!?! None of my menu icons are there, and the fonts are reset to pt12 sans. WTF is going on with KDE?? I am sorry to rant, but when it comes in the way of my getting work done this morning, and dealing with ANOTHER issue with KDE just makes me want to run windows after KDE since 1998

    Nothing wrong is going on with KDE.
    It works fine here, and this cannot be a general problem either, otherwise it wouldn't even make it through automated testing.

    As I already wrote, check whether you have qtct (or libqt5-qtct) installed, and remove it.
    This breaks KDE, because it overrides the used Qt platform plugin by force. In other words, it causes Qt5 (and KF5) applications not to respect KDE's settings (like font and icon theme).

    I hope you know that there are other desktops included in openSUSE too. No need to switch to Windows if you have problems with Plasma5 or don't like it for some reason.
