No Icons on my Evolution install...


Hi, i'm running mepis 3.4.3 and was trying to get Evolution up and running as it has the calendar/mail/other stuff i need..

Mepis uses KDE, and i have ugraded to kde 3.5.2

When i used Synaptic package manager to install Evolution, it all installed fine, and i got the install wizard, and it all works, except no icons in the toolbar or down the taskpad on the side.. all i get are some red X markers indicating where the icons should be...

Help About on Evolution shows

Evolution 2.4.2.1

My sources.list looks like this

Quote:
# See sources.list(5) for more information

# This file should be edited through synaptic
# New sources should be added only in the section at the end of this file!

# Primary
deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib non-free

# MEPIS apt pool - specific packages available on-line
deb http://apt.mepis.org/3.4/ etch main

deb http://wine.sourceforge.net/apt/ binary/
deb-src http://wine.sourceforge.net/apt/ source/
Does anyone have any ideas?

I had the same problem with Evolution running on KDE. I did not have GNOME installed, and Evolution apparently uses icon images that are part of GNOME. I don't remember exactly which GNOME-related package I installed to solve the problem, but I *think* it's called something like "gnome-icon-theme." My system is FC, so the package name may differ.

I must have picked the wrong package, then, because I know there was this one package that made the difference. Let me look again...

The package you're looking for is "gnome-themes". I had the exact same problem and installing this package solved it.

This thread is what actually gave me the hint to find that package

Aah, that's gotta be it. Thanks for the correct information.
