Titlebar and taskbar icons are black in fluxbox on Slackware 14.0-arm

Greetings, perhaps someone knows why I am having this problem - I could not find a solution after a good deal of searching. I am running the stock fluxbox (1.3.2) that comes with Slackware 14.0 arm, but it seems that the titlebar and taskbar icons for programs like seamonkey, gvim, and gmplayer all show up black (still retaining their correct shape). However the icons for firefox, gftp, and xine, for instance, show up correctly.

I have tried restarting the computer once or twice (thinking that it was an issue with the gtk-icon cache or something), but there is no change. When I started xfce, it had no problems with the icons.

It didn't always do this. I did compile and install webkitgtk-1.8.3 and webkitgtk3-1.8.3 from SBo recently however.

When I entered /var/log/packages and did a
ls * | grep gtk
it gave me
so it looks like I updated the gtk+2 package at some point...

Anyway, thanks - maybe someone has run into the same issue.

Which port are you using? The original sf or Eric's hf? I am sure Stuart will answer here, otherwise have you tried on the mailing list:

I believe I am using the original sf version. I followed the directions on for the installation. I have not yet tried the mailing list - I might try that after a while. Let me know if there is other information that would be helpful that I can post. I took a look in /usr/share/icons/hicolor and found png icons for mplayer, gftp, and xine. I found png icons for firefox, gvim, xine, and gftp in /usr/share/pixmaps, however there was only one size in there.


fluxbox, icons, titlebar
