Recently, I installed xfce 4.10 according to the guideline provided by Linux from scratch (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/). After logining into the system, I found that no icons were displayed. Is there anything missing?
The folder icon, application icons are missing. And there are no items in [Appearance]->[Icons]. I am sure that there are some icons in the folder /usr/share/icons.
You can view my screenshot here.
Thanks a lot for your kind attention.

After creating a file "/etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc":
cat > /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc << "EOF"
gtk-icon-theme-name = "hicolor"
The icons are shown. However, I still cannot find the icon themes under the "Appearance" window. Any idea?
Which icon packages do you have installed? Do they have the proper index and theme files present? I had this issue when I first installed xfce 4.8, but it was resolved by installing tango, gnome, faenza or any number of other icon themes. 'Hicolor' is not really a theme unto itself, it is more of a place to stick default application icons.
