[SOLVED] Strange Icons
« on: July 07, 2013, 06:57:57 pm »

After I updated my version (64 bit) of VL, I now have several icons on the panel and in the menu that look like pages with a red "x" in the middle.  It is really no big deal, just passing it along.

Thank you!

The problem is probably more directly related to xfce, at which I'm incompetent. But to give folks a head start, please post the output:

ls /usr/share/icons/{F,f}aenza*

And make sure there's a pretty good number of icons in /usr/share/pixmaps , as well.

I am using the standard version 7.1 64 bit.  I don't know what I've updated - sorry for that.  I just went to Gslapt and let it do it's thing.  I'm not sure if it is the final release or a beta.

Hope that helps.  By the way, I didn't see any images of folders in my filesystem - just the names of the files.

Well, I just did a re-install and decided not to update anything until the missing icon thing is solved.  I wonder where they went.  I hope it isn't my laptop.

Some bad packages on the repo, instead of adding just their own mime information, have a full mime setup inside them. This screws up the system mime info after installing one of them. I was slowly compiling a list of those packages some time back, but lost it... >:(

This can usually be fixed by running (as root):
Code: [Select]
update-mime-database /usr/share/mimeLog out and back in to see your icons again...

Thanks Joe1962, but I tried it (several times), and all it would say is "command not found".  It's no big deal though as everything works.

update-mime-database /usr/share/mime should work, but try this as well.

A couple of the icon themes don't seem to be complete Faenza and Faenza-Dark, and I've had better luck with Faenza-Cupertino and Tango.

To change this setting go to Menu- >>Settings >>>>> Appearance and click on the icons tab. There you can choose between what is available.
