Since Gentoo moved to KDE Plasma 5, I've decided I really don't need to have all of it on my system any more, and uninstalled all KDE-related packages. There are, however, a few KDE applications I use regularly (particularly Okular, KTorrent and Digikam), so I reinstalled just those apps in order to get a minimal set of dependencies. The applications themselves work fine with this setup, but most of the icons appear to be missing. I've installed kde-frameworks/breeze-icons hoping this would "magically" fix it, but that is not the case. I'm guessing it's just a matter of editing the right configuration file, but I have no idea which file that is.

Does anyone know how to get icons back in KDE5 applications without actually installing all of KDE5?

Install x11-misc/qt5ct. This sets an environment variable QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct in /etc/env.d.

Then use qt5ct to choose icons/colors/fonts.
