Re: Can't get Numix Icon Theme to work

where did you get the numix themes?
i will try to replicate the issue on my #! machine.

fwiw, i tried installing numix themes on my archlinux machine a while ago and had the distinct impression that the dev's packaging skills are below average. shame, it's such a nice icon theme.

meanwhile, please check:
where did it install the icons?
can you take a look at the icons in their location as normal user?
what is the exact folder structure there, up and including to the folder that includes "index.theme"?
what's the content of that file?
which are the exact icons that remain NOT numix, and where (openbox, tint2, gtk2 or gtk3)?
you did restart tint2?
you checked what was suggested in the last post in the thread you linked?

Re: Can't get Numix Icon Theme to work

OK...

fwiw, in my book pebkac is used in a friendly, self-including manner (meaning: we're all human, so we're all pebkac).
it also expresses helplessness: "sorry, i really can't think of anything else".

if i really think someone didn't do their homework i usually express this more directly.

but you should really take a look inside /usr/share/applications/*.desktop.
in most, there's an icon entry. if you compare that to what you actually have in your icon theme, it explains a lot why some icon themes work better than others.
have you tried the Any Color You Like icon theme? looks aside, it's still (hasn't been updated in a while) one of the most complete themes i ever used.

Re: Can't get Numix Icon Theme to work

something is really, really fishy here and it might be your problem is bigger than icon themes not working.

Re: Can't get Numix Icon Theme to work

*sigh* Well, I agree, something screwed something up... I tried reinstalling lxappearance, Thunar, openbox... to no avail. Also for some reason Catfish was missing all of a sudden. I think I'll have to reinstall the whole thing.  neutral

Edit: On a funny side note, the system basically went *crunch* and a little *bang*. So it just did what was to be expected!  wink

Re: Can't get Numix Icon Theme to work

^ thank you for that tip, brontosaurusrex.
Unfortunately I am now unable to follow your advice as I tried to import a backup of my home directory that I made earlier this month. I was then greeted with a black screen, followed by some sort of fallback openbox-ish desktop from which I could neither access files, applications or the internet.

So I will reinstall in the next days and try to learn something from this (what exactly I don't know yet ^^)

If a moderator wants to close this thread or change its title, feel free to do so. Thanks for all your help =]
