Missing icons after update

A lot of icons are missing since the last update like all the xfce panel/menu icons or icons of the most gtk themes.

Here you can see the output of .xsession-errors:

Has this problem maybe something to do with the gail/gtk2 thing? Hope someone has an idea hmm

Re: Missing icons after update

I have the same problem. These threads may be related:

http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=438296
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=57393
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=56622
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=56519

I tried everything I could so far, no success. I am running xmonad. I didn't have hal/dbus running, but I enabled them in rc.conf and rebooted with no luck. I downgraded gconf and rebooted- that didn't work either. Most of my GTK2 apps display no icons. With some exceptions. Firefox appears to have all it's icons. Pidgin shows some "standard" icons, like "Quit", "Add", "Preferences", etc. Homebank has "Open" and "Save", but no others.

It's almost like non-stock GTK2 icons don't work. I believe the ones that are working are built-in GTK2 icons. The ones that don't are custom for that application (which is most of them, sadly). Other programs, like Sonata, won't even start:

$ sonata 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/sonata", line 48, in <module>
    app = main.Base()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/sonata/main.py", line 1057, in __init__
    self.albumpb = gtk.gdk.pixbuf_new_from_file_at_size(self.find_path('sonata-album.png'), self.LIB_COVER_SIZE, self.LIB_COVER_SIZE)
glib.GError: Unrecognized image file format

EDIT: gqview & mirage (GTK2 viewers) do not display images, either. feh (non-GTK viewer) does work.

Re: Missing icons after update

Maybe try reinstalling your icon packages?

Re: Missing icons after update

Only icon packages I had were gnome-icon-theme and hicolor-icon-theme, and reinstalling didn't do anything. I ran "gtk-demo" and ran the "Icon View Basics" demo and got this error: "Failed to load an image: Couldn't recognize the image file format for file '/usr/share/gtk-2.0/demo/gnome-fs-regular.png". feh was able to open it fine. It's like glib2 went dumb sad

Re: Missing icons after update

I had this problem on a minimal fresh install, I was trying to find the one package I needed to make it work but failed. I installed xfce4 and gdk_pixbuf was able to read PNGs, then i removed xfce4 and all associated packages and it still worked. I ended up with two parallel installs, with the same set of packages, but one that could read PNGs and the other that could not. Wish I could be more help.

Re: Missing icons after update

Same problem here. Sonata, thunar, gdm, medit etc. don't work. I tried to install gnome for testing purpose, however, I can't start it.

Re: Missing icons after update

This is a bit of a long shot, but seeing as there don't seem to be any working solutions, have you tried running thunar-vfs-update-thumbnailers-cache-1 and gtk-update-icon-cache?

$ /usr/lib/xfce4/thunar-vfs-update-thumbnailers-cache-1

# gtk-update-icon-cache -f /path/to/icon/theme/folder

Re: Missing icons after update

@creslin: Doesn't help, tried that already as user and root.
@Slash: Even reinstalling doesn't help here.

Re: Missing icons after update

icon cache didn't help. glib2 or gdk-pixbuf (or whatever handles it) cannot read image files, period (not just icons). Image viewers using GTK2 can't open any file. Every image file is "unrecognized". Except for the default gnome icons like "save" and "load" and "quit".

Edit: Perhaps we should submit a bug report?

Re: Missing icons after update

Is shared-mime-info installed on your system?

Re: Missing icons after update

It is, I've even reinstalled it. That was JGC's advice relating to my bug report too.

The problem is still unsolved. Has somebody sorted it out?

Re: Missing icons after update

I'm experiencing same problem, but only under KDE (kdemod3), under Xfce all is ok, so I guess problem is in some configuration of gtk or maybe some exported paths to libs are different (libpixbufloader-png.so is in /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf/loaders/ but not in /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders - I'm not sure if this is related to this problem). Reinstalling packages doesn't help. I switched to Xfce, so problem for me is somehow solved wink

Re: Missing icons after update

Same thing happens for me, I run awesome .. but Firefox doesn't show any icons and gtk-demo neither.
Also this simple python script throws an exception:

import gtk
gtk.gdk.pixbuf_new_from_file('/usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/apps/file-manager.png')

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
glib.GError: Couldn't recognize the image file format for file '/usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/apps/file-manager.png'

Updating shared-mime-info has worked for me, my version was out of date. Was on 0.30-1 and upgraded to 0.51-1

Hi,

I think you have to set your XDG_* environement variables.

Before mine was set to :

export XDG_MENU_PREFIX=""
export XDG_CONFIG_HOME="${HOME}/.config"
export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=""
export XDG_DATA_HOME="${HOME}/.local/share"
export XDG_DATA_DIRS=""
export XDG_CACHE_HOME="${HOME}/.cache"

and the issue happened

I set them to these values to solve the issue :

export XDG_MENU_PREFIX=""
export XDG_CONFIG_HOME="${HOME}/.config"
export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS="/etc/xdg"
export XDG_DATA_HOME="${HOME}/.local/share"
export XDG_DATA_DIRS="/usr/share:/usr/local/share"
export XDG_CACHE_HOME="${HOME}/.cache"

Hope this help.

Re: Missing icons after update

You are right! If I type these lines into a shell everything works. In which file should I put these lines? In rc.conf they don't work.

EDIT: Editing /etc/profile helped of course. Thank you very much! All of you.

Re: Missing icons after update

Strange, I wonder which package upgrade "fixed" those environment variables for me. I see that /etc/profile.d/{kde3.sh,xorg.sh} both touch those variables, but only xorg.sh sets XDG_CONFIG_DIRS / XDG_DATA_DIRS properly. That file is owned by libx11, which wasn't upgraded when everything started working again, so that can't be it. It'd be interesting to know what went wrong here, but at least there is a fix now, whew smile
