No icons in thunar when running out of xfce


Hi,
Well Thunar is a strong point for Xfce. But I have issue with icons in Thunar. When it is started in running Xfce all is OK. But when Thunar is started under other wm (like fvwm) there are no icons. There are displayed only name of files (in icon view).

Try adding this to your ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file:

gtk-icon-theme-name="gnome"

igadoter,

you can install either one of these if you want to configure the GTK2 programs look and feel outside XFCE:
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.../lxappearance/
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...p/gtk-chtheme/

If you happen to have some GTK1 applications (like XMMS) and you want them to look better, you can give these a try:

http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...-theme-switch/
