every icon theme has its own "config file called index.theme
in it there shoul be a line with the keyword Inherits=xxxx
where xxxx is the fallback icontheme for that icon types what
are not available in that actual icon theme.

In the index.theme of your chosen icon theme put this:
Inherits=gnome, hicolor

and it should work.
