I have just built Xfce 4.6.1 from source and I am running into one nagging
issue with icons. I am aware that Xfce v4.6 doesn't ship with any default
icon theme and you have to install Tango, GNOME or the Industrial icon
theme. I have done those things, but I have a few issue and I believe they
are all interconnected.
1 - Thunar -If I view any part of a file system in icon view, I get
generic icons (for most but not all the file types). When I switch to
compact list icon see the correct icons for all file types.
2 - Desktop Settings - If I set the icon size larger than 32 I get generic
icons, any size under 32 works fine but as soon as the size is 33 or
larger it switches to the generic icon.
3 - Xfce Settings Manager - Again some icons are missing!
If I switch the icon theme, I get the same results.
So what is the problem? I can only think of a underlying issue with a
graphic library. I was able to view the svg files from the icon directory
with rsvg-view, gimp and display.
Here is the strange thing if I view the same .svg files with ristretto I
get a nothing, it is just blank!
Any clues or hints? I am off to use strace to see what calls ristretto is
making to display the .svg files.
I am build Xfce 4.6.1 on CentOS 4.6
