XFCE: All icons gone [Solved]

Yesterday I have installed Sabayon XFCE on one oldish machine I have and all worked fine. I did the update / upgrade stuff and installed a lot of additional programs. After reboot, no icons anymore! neither on the desktop nor in the applications menu. In some applications icons are missing (notably Firefox) others seem to be fine.

I guess that comes from installing some KDE / QT based applications, but I have no idea where to look and what to do next. I checked the Gentoo XFCE guide and this forum and did some googling, but no pointers at all.

Somebody here who has an idea how to tackle this?
Doing work is no problem, but it's just nicer with the icons around...

Thanks,
Rainer

Hi, that is a known issue with gdk-pixbuf, if you install the most updated version of that package the issue should disappear:
(as root)
Code: Select all
equo install gdk-pixbuf
