slackware64-current + xfce; icons and terminal issues
 
Fresh guest install of current as of changelog dated 16-Feb-2011, in to VirtualBox 4.0.4 (13.1 x86_64 host).

1. About 6 of the icons normally residing in the top half of Settings Manager are missing (names are their and functions work). Selecting 'Appearance -> Icons' and re-selecting the one choice available restores one, the rest remain MIA.

2. Default xfce Terminal launch fails with error <????> Re-selecting the default 'Preferred Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal -> Xfce Terminal' has no effect. 'Properties' shows the usual 'exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator'.

Setting 'Preferred Applications' to 'X Terminal' launches an xterm successfully as expected.

Repeated install on fresh disk (gotta love virtual machines), same failures.

Cheers,

[update]
'Terminal' issue was due to missing VTE package. Not sure why this also cleared up the missing icons, but installing it plus a reboot fixed things.

Cheers,

Unable to reproduce here on multiple machines.
As root, run this:
Code:

# Update any existing icon cache files:
if find /usr/share/icons 2> /dev/null | grep -q icon-theme.cache ; then
  for theme_dir in /usr/share/icons/* ; do
    if [ -r ${theme_dir}/icon-theme.cache ]; then
      echo "Updating icon-theme.cache in ${theme_dir}..."
      /usr/bin/gtk-update-icon-cache -t -f ${theme_dir} 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null &
    fi
  done
fi

Thanks. Not sure how/why but missing vte.

Rebooting ran that section of code I pasted from rc.M :-)

Ack. It was easier than cut/paste.
