Missing file icons in Thunderbird with Ubuntu 12.10


Hi!
I posted this in mozillaZine, and was told maybe you could help me.

I have just installed TB in a fresh Ubuntu 12.10 (amd64) installation and every file icon shown inside of Thunderbird is missing. That means that attachments have no icons. This is what I mean:

I have tried updating Thunderbird through software updater, even tried with the Mozilla build found at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/. Also tried reinstalling Ubuntu, and installing it in a virtual machine (i386 version), and they all have the same issue.

I have the same version of Ubuntu in another PC and in a Laptop and none have this issue. Could it be hardware related? That's the only difference between them...

For sure it isn't hardware issue, most likely the icon theme isn't loading or isn't present, check if the same icon themes are installed on all machines.

How can I tell which icon themes I have installed?

I've searched for packages with "icon-theme" in their name, and both computers have the same packages installed: gnome-icon-theme, gnome-icon-theme-symbolic, hicolor-icon-theme, humanity-icon-theme.

Also, in /usr/share/icons, I have the same folders in both computers.

In the terminal type:
Code:
dpkg -l | grep -i icon
That should show all the icon packages installed.

Now you have to find out which icon set is loading, maybe this one don't have all the icons,
lxappearance is a nice program to change the icon themes.

According to lxappearance, it's using ubuntu-mono-dark. But I don't think the problem is the icon theme, because icons are only missing in Thunderbird. Every other program shows them fine, even Firefox.
