Thanks for the pointer of the "Other Settings".
Re-setting the Theme to "Nightlife Graphite" and Icon Theme to "Mint-X-Dark" (instead of Mint-X), seemed better with Pidgin and Shutter.
Tomboy Notes icon didn't get any better no matter which Icon Theme I chose, but I can live with that one as it is now.
I noticed that if I changed to hicolor or default (and some others) that the shutter and pidgin icon showed their original colours, but seemed not to be the correct size or not positioned correctly. So, Mint-X-Dark it is for the partial improvement
Thanks for the assistance.
