Which packages should I install to get my icons back?

Asked by dot dot dot on 2011-04-18

I was manually cleaning up some unused packaged in Synaptic and I may have removed some icons in the process. I use Kubuntu 10.04 LTS and Docky 2.2 from the launchpad ppa. As you can see in this screenshot:

icons for the Trashcan, Dolphin, and Konsole are all missing. What package should I install to bring them back?

Install (and use) any icon theme?

Installed a new icon theme... Oxygen Black-Refit (and you can see from the screenshot):

Restarted docky and it is still is missing the icons.

Make sure you kill docky, run 'update-icon-caches' (probably with sudo), and to be safe do 'rm -Rf ~/.cache/docky' then restart Docky.

If it fails after that, I dont think theres anything I can do to help. I am out of ideas. I'll just blame KDE at that point. :-)

gnome-icon-theme was the missing package! so, it definitely was not kde :D
