Hello,

I've been using Xfce4 for some time, with the Caja (from Mate desktop environment) file manager.

Currently I'm playing with dwm, on the same computer. This means a very light window manager, and no desktop environment. Caja works properly, but it does not display any icon. Just the file names and a bland, generic, icon.
I guess there are some processes and stuff like that were launched by the desktop environment, and are now "missing".

Here is a small screenshot of what I get :

If I launch xfce4 again (after logging out of dwm), everything is okay, so it's not a missing files problem.

Any hint as to what should be launched or configured to get back all icons in Caja ?

Tia,

if i had to wager a guess, you might be using a gtk theme that works in xfce but not mate... does it work if you use "traditionalok"?

Looks like it.

I just ran lxappearance, reconfigured the theme, and everything is back as it should.
