All icons disappeared from KDE apps in Gnome in FC3

A few days ago I was fiddling around with my system scheme files in a effort to change my mouse cursor theme. Well while I was doing so I seemed to have messed something up because yesterday night I noticed that all KDE-centric programs have no icons in the Gnome menu or in the program itself. Programs like Konqueror and KolourPaint's buttons have no graphics on them, they're just blank squares. I have no idea where the problem occured exactly, what I need to know is how these KDE icons were linked to the programs initially and the best way to go about resetting them. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this has crippled a large part of my OS.

I've fixed it now. While I was looking through my /usr/share/icons directory I noticed a broken folder link called "default.kde" pointing towards a nonexistant folder called "crystalsvg" and realized I had accidentally deleted my crystalsvg folder while I was deleting some mouse theme folders that I didn't want anymore. Thanks for the help though.
