[solved] app icons not showing: Enlightenment

Postby Basel on Sun Aug 12, 2012 9:06 am

Yesterday I installed E17 on a fresh mint 13 xfce installation. Works very good on my old (2.7Ghz p4 with 512mb memory) laptop, only there are almost no application icons showing in the menu' s. Not a real show stopper, but a bit annoying nevertheless (especially in a ibar with quick-starters).

Does someone know a trick to enable (tell e17 where to find all of them) the application icons (or did I overlook something)?
Or is the only way to show them: lookup where the icons live and add them manually for every application in every menu/bar?

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this kind of question, because I don't know if there are many more E17 users in the Mint community?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Ok - I installed from latest builds with Cinnamon base (figured the 'buntu version would be stale) so don't have direct experience with your problem as the icon themes I tried all work OTB. Have you tried using different icon themes?

Also - the same place you change icon themes - make sure the box is checked for "Enable icon theme for applications".

Thank you Pat,

Poked a bit around in the icon themes like you suggested. I don' t know why but suddenly all the icons are there. :shock:
Probably some sort of "finger-trouble" from my side. :oops:

Thanks for your time.

Problem solved.
