If you are not using 4.1, then you better wait. All the icon theming
changed for xffm. With 4.1 xffm will use icons installed by third
parties (like gnome). xffm-icons now only contains the "Rodent" theme
which was created for xfce. It also contains the xfmime-edit program
which is called by xffm to customize icons on a user by user basis.

Also, if you want to change all gtk default icons in xffm, you need to
create a gtkrc file. Francois wrote an instruction document and placed
it on the web someplace. I can't remember where, but if you search the
xfce4-dev archives you can find the link.
