evolution icons missing in kde


When I open evolution in kde all of my icons are missing.

I found this solution weeks ago and googled like mad to find the answer again, didn't find it.

Scrolled through weeks of terminal commands to retrieve, so I though I'd post it for anyone who may need it.

$ chmod -R 0775 /usr/share/icons
$ echo gtk-icon-theme-name=\"gnome\" >> ~/.gtkrc-2.0

Now my icons live.

Thank you very much for posting the solution. I am searching for a solution for about 2 weeks now. I saw other people have the same or similar problem but with no solution.

When I executed "chmod -R 0775 /usr/share/icons" command, I just got "operation not permitted", but the second command ran without any error and restored my icons in Evolution.

I <3 Linux

Sweet, after all the posts I've read, and all that I've learned, I've finally contributed. Now, I'm officially a second level noob.

I <3 Linux.

Thanks, but I had to type

echo gtk-icon-theme-name=\"gnome\" >> ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde

instead of .....~/.gtkrc-2.0

YAY, this command was a life-saver :-)

just make sure you do
Code:
echo gtk-icon-theme-name=\"gnome\" >> ~/.gtkrc-2.0
on the right user and not root.. got me confused there for a second.

doesn't help on FC6

It doesn't help on my Fedora core 6.

First, i don't have ~/.gtkrc-2.0, but ~/.gtkrc and ~/.gtkrc-1.2-gnome2

The firs one has
Code:
# -- THEME AUTO-WRITTEN DO NOT EDIT
include "/usr/share/themes/Bluecurve/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"
# -- THEME AUTO-WRITTEN DO NOT EDIT
and ~/.gtkrc-1.2-gnome2 has
Code:
# Autowritten by gnome-settings-daemon. Do not edit

include "/home/aviel/.gtkrc.mine"
I added a file /home/aviel/.gtkrc.mine and put it
gtk-icon-theme-name="gnome"

and it still didn't help.

I must also mention that i didn't do the chmod -R 755 line, because it didn't seem necessary, and it is very hard to reverse such a command.

Any other ideas?

RE: evolution icons missing in kde

vi /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

change:

gtk-icon-theme-name = "Clearlooks"

to

gtk-icon-theme-name = "Bluecurve"

or

gtk-icon-theme-name = "GNOME"

Thanks, a1danel.
The "Bluecurve" option worked, the "GNOME" didn't.

no problem; you can always go to your "Control Center"->"Appearance & Themes"->"Icons" to see what Icon themes you have available and use those in your gtk-icon-theme-name="Whatever IconTheme" for evolution.

Glad it worked though.

Slackware 12.1 and gsb

I have the same problem, I use Slackware and GSB, the fix was:

echo gtk-icon-theme-name=\"gnome\" >> /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

bye
