I'm trying to figure out why various items in my menu, is missing an icon (I already have several icon/theme packs already installed, and it worked prior to a recent update). Sadly, I don't know exactly what day that it broke on, I know it was at least a couple weeks for sure; and before then, it showed up fine.

A couple icons that is mission, is the Web Browser option, according to the .desktop file (exo-web-browser.desktop), the icon should be Icon=web-browser.

Locate web-browser returns:
Code:
ct85711 # locate web-browser
/usr/lib64/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/web-browser
/usr/share/applications/exo-web-browser.desktop

I've already recompiled the package owning exo-web-browser and the various icon's installed
Code:
ct85711 # equery b /usr/share/applications/exo-web-browser.desktop
 * Searching for /usr/share/applications/exo-web-browser.desktop ...
xfce-base/exo-0.10.2-r1 (/usr/share/applications/exo-web-browser.desktop)

equery b /usr/share/icons/Gant.Xfce/
 * Searching for /usr/share/icons/Gant.Xfce/ ...
x11-themes/xfce-gant-icon-theme-3.9_p6 (/usr/share/icons/Gant.Xfce)

equery b /usr/share/icons/Tango/
 * Searching for /usr/share/icons/Tango/ ...
x11-themes/tango-icon-theme-0.8.90 (/usr/share/icons/Tango)

equery b /usr/share/icons/oxygen/
 * Searching for /usr/share/icons/oxygen/ ...
kde-base/oxygen-icons-4.13.1 (/usr/share/icons/oxygen)


I've done this same thing for some other icons that are missing too, like xfburn (also recompiled that package and all the packages that has a icon file for xfburn).

Ok, did some more checking, tested making a new user/profile; and that didn't have any changes, the same items is missing their icons. I did check, and it seems I am using the oxygen icon theme set; I've checked versions 4.13.0, 4.13.1, and 4.13.2 and didn't have any effect on the missing icons either. I've tried switching icon-theme sets to Tango, and also Xfce-Gant; and while they do fix some of the missing icons, some others that did work is missing, and like texstudio it's missing a icon for all 3 icon-theme sets.

According to equery f texstudio, it puts it's own icon in
Code:

/usr/share/icons
/usr/share/icons/hicolor
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/texstudio.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/22x22
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/22x22/texstudio.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/texstudio.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/texstudio.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/64x64
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/64x64/texstudio.png

Well, got it fixed enough for now. I ended up installing gnome-icon-theme, and after switching to that theme, it fixed all of the missing icons except one program for all of the other icon-theme sets (the rest shows up fine now). The one, where it's icon still doesn't want to show up, is texstudio, and it's only not showing up on oxygen and tango, while Gant and gnome it shows a icon. Why, this is now working, I have no idea; and personally not going to bother try figuring it out either.
