Icons disappeared after upgrade from 11.0 -> 11.1


Hi, Random Icons have disappeared from KDE, like in the menu bar, and the quick links in konqueror. What package should I reinstall to fix this problem?

Thanks,
David

You upgraded to version 11.1 of what? Do you mean you were running Slackware 11 and now you're running Slackware -current?

That's right, I just went to slackware -current (dropline is calling it 11.1)

Well, I doubt there is any particular package you can install to get the icons back. I don't use KDE, but I would think that you can customize what icons appear in those locations, and put whatever you want there. It might be easiest to try to figure out how you do that (dig through the KDE settings menu or something), and just create icons that link to whatever programs are missing.

Like I said though, I don't use KDE so I don't know specifically how to do that.

Thanks, that will help. I think I'll look for the file that says what icons should go where and try to get it a fresh install. Or something. Anybody feel free to speak up if I am completely wrong.

Actually, for that matter, the menu itself is just messed up all around, things are missing, etc. How can I get it back to it's default?

I created a new User, and it's menu is the same thing

Right now the easiest way to get -current is to do a fresh install of it. Way to many things have been moved around and changed.

Deleting saved settings usually resets KDE to it's default. Isn't there menu updating tool in settings?

I had a similiar problem recently that affected just one user account.
I resolved by renaming the /var/tmp/kdecache-username/ksycoca to /var/tmp/kdecache-username/ksycoca_old and then restarting KDE.

No luck on that, allend. Is there some main repository of sorts that keeps track of what icon goes to what program?

Oh, Snap. I deleted everything from the menu to do kappfinder to refresh everything. It isn't finding anything. How do I get it back to default?

To reset back to default I found this thread:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=521761

OK, I found the common denominator to all of these programs w/o icons... they are all gnome-based. Is there a way to import gnome icons for the progams?

Do you have GNOME? If you don't then there's no problem here.
