After installing Arch and XFCE on my desktop computer, I installed the Rhythmbox media player from the Pacman repositories, including the Gstreamer packages and good/ugly/bad packages. One thing I've noticed is that several icons are missing and are replaced with a red 'X' icon in Rhythmbox. For example, the 'Random' and 'Change Visibility of Browser' icons are just a red X. I'm guessing this is because of a lack of icons installed on the system, and I'm curious on what to do to resolve the issue. I tried to install a another full-icon package, called 'Tango' :
# pacman -S tango-icon-theme tango-icon-theme-extras
Oddly enough, after downloading, I set it in the 'User Interface' section and started up Rhythmbox. Now all the icons are different, but the 'X' icons still exist, just a different style! All other icons load up just fine in XFCE.
This is really just a minor annoyance, but I'd still like to know how to fix it. If anyone has any advice, I will greatly appreciate it!
Since Rythmbox is a Gnome-application it perhaps uses some Icons which are only provided by Gnome or any Gnome icon set.
Just a suggestion! Not a real solution for your problem.
This is correct.
The shuffle icon for rhythmbox on my system is:
If installing the gnome-icon-theme pulls too many dependencies, you can have these icons from the Rodent theme,
that should be a dependency of xfce.
have the following line in your .gtkrc:
gtk-fallback-icon-theme = "Rodent"
or any other icon theme that has a media-playlist-shuffle in it.
Yep, installing the gnome-icon-theme worked the magic. Genius.
It had a couple dependencies, but was by no means a dependency hell. It had a 20MB installation size and the following dependencies:
Thank you very much for the advice! I now feel.. completed
