[SOLVED] Some Gnome icons (title bar) are missing (fresh install)

I've just installed Arch base and base-devel (64 bits), intel-ucode, xorg, nvidia driver, gnome and started gdm:

This is the console output:

(nautilus:1436): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_icon_theme_get_for_screen: assertion 'GDK_IS_SCREEN (screen)' failed

(nautilus:1436): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid (NULL) pointer instance

(nautilus:1436): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_signal_connect_object: assertion 'G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed

And  journalctl:

I've notice a strange behaviour in GDM login, too. The first time I put my password and try to log in doesn't happen anything. I have to press "Cancel" button and try again, then successfully.

may 24 14:35:26 Arch-Gnome gdm-password][620]: pam_unix(gdm-password:auth): conversation failed
may 24 14:35:26 Arch-Gnome gdm-password][620]: pam_unix(gdm-password:auth): auth could not identify password for [yorick]

may 24 14:35:29 Arch-Gnome gdm-password][623]: pam_unix(gdm-password:session): session opened for user yorick by (uid=0)

Re: [SOLVED] Some Gnome icons (title bar) are missing (fresh install)

You should probably install some icon sets then...

pacman -Ss icon

That's not the problem. Gnome group installs Adwaita icon theme and others. Anyway, I've tried installing other icon themes, but issue persists. I've done some Arch+Gnome installations in the past, and this is the first time it happens.

Re: [SOLVED] Some Gnome icons (title bar) are missing (fresh install)

I have exactly the same problem. After a pacman update (i do not know wich one, because i did not saw it directly, because i normally use no GTK3 apps), this problem happens. It seems only gtk3 applications are affected. My Arch installations is not a new one, it's 2 years old (and frequently updated all the time)

My my .config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini does not exists.

Same problem here. However this https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=178290 fixed my system ( I also had error messages from journalctl related to svg format not recognized). As the thread says, I basically just had to reinstall a package with "pacman -S gdk-pixbuf2" and then everything worked. I don't know why, because that packaged was already installed.

This worked for me too. And furthermore solved another issues that I can't possibly connect with this package :?

Re: [SOLVED] Some Gnome icons (title bar) are missing (fresh install)

smile happened today again after an update of the system with "yaourt -Syua"... still no idea why, still solved with "yaourt -S gdk-pixbuf2"
As that time in June I also had problems with the login (I'm using gdm) before this trick.
I still have to check the logs
Am I the only one affected this time?

The gdk-pixbuf2 fix is in fact mentioned here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GN … _GDM_login

Pretty sure what you actually want/need to do is the post-install of gdk-pixbuf2 to refresh the cache

gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache

stick that into some autostart or something or execute this after installing new iconsets or new applications that need new icons
