Upgrading Packages = Icons are messed up


http://www.wolfness.com/upload/gnome_messed.png

Lots of my icons (folders, files, etc) look like that... any ideas? I used smart upgrade in synaptics package manager, and after a reboot my icons are messed up like this.

Exactly the same happened to me. I am using Debian testing. I think gnome 2.6 is still broken.

And I got the same when I upgraded to gnome 2.6. I saw apt-get removed some icon-themes, and apparently didn't replace them all. I think we'll get the rest of the icons soon, and I can live some days without .

But I've already tasted gnome 2.6 on slackware, and it's great, really! I like especially the browsing window when you open a file, you know...

Gnome 2.6 in Sarge, yahoo!!! I love sarge!!!

how do you open a file from the browsing window....everytime i try like with 2.4 and expect Gedit to open or just the viewer in Nautilus....it closed immediately.....

Yay... so I'm not alone

Well I'm doing a smart upgrade thingy now, so I'll see if it's fixed yet. I did see that it removed a few packages, but I didn't really care much. Ah well, hope it works soon because it does seem to run a bit faster now with this new Gnome version.

mine did that too but now they work

I installed the latest gnome from SID and at first install I had crappy icons and a lot didn't work, Distrowatch just updated and showed gnome 2.6 in SID at that time. I waited a couple days and did the usual apt-get update and apt-get -s dist-upgrade and saw a slew of gnome 2.6 packages were going to install. Installed them and all was well. You might try adding a SID or unstable source and doing a apt-get install gnome/unstable to see if that fixes you but you will also want to make sure you don't break anything in the process. I'm sure this will get fixed in testing very soon. It was only this week that it was fixed for me running unstable.

What if those two packages are already installed and you still have the problem?

Oh well, I'm sure testing will be fixed soon anyway. Long as it boots into X, that's all I care about.

Gedit and Gnumeric aren't working, damned. Fortunately I don't need them now...

Sorry for my enthusiasm, I was kind of waiting for gnome 2.6, if gnome 2.6 will be in sarge, I will follow sarge into stable .
