Unhappy No icons in digiKam

Good evening...

I've got digiKam installed from and generally speaking it works perfectly.

But if you look at this screenshot you can see there's no icons!!! I expected to have icons down the left and right-hand side of the screens but there's nothing there! If I hover my mouse the tool tips pop-up and I can see what's actually there.

There's also errant HTML code showing up, like in the middle of the screen where it says Rotate Left and Rotate Right. I've seen HTML codes (like <br/>) on other places too.

I'm running Slackware64 v13.1 with a pretty much full install, except KDE, KDEI, XAP, and Y (games). The first time I tried to build & install digiKam it failed and I had to install the kdelibs-4.4.3 and kdegraphics-4.4.3 packages (I did it via slackpkg). After it worked, some optional dependencies were missing - but I gotta believe those icons were not optional!!!

Any idea what I'm missing?

I'd say hat you're missing icons

Seriously now : you say you don't have KDE installed, so if I were you, I'd check whether kde icons are installed (they should be called oxygen-icons).
Also, if you are using a GTK environment, I'd suggest you install oxygen-gtk for better integration, and kipi-plugins for many optional features (redeyes and picasa export come to mind)

Thank you! That was it! A quick check with slackpkg revealed that oxygen-icons was not installed, so I installed it and everything looks good now!

I'm using XFCE as my desktop. Last time I installed Slackware (12.2 going by the CD's I had lying around) I found that installing the KDE super-package installed so much stuff I never touched I figured this time I'd just install the basic X package and then add-on packages as I needed them. I guess oxygen-icons aren't really a required dependency for compilation but they're kind of handy at run-time!

Thanks again.
