    Missing Icons and file names with Xfce

    Hi all,

    Setting up Xfce as my desktop and have 2 small issues:
    1:- With Thurnar(1.6.3) does not show icons. The Preferences and View>"View as Detailed List" have been set.
    2:- With gedit(3.10.4) the file name tab bar is blank with not file names showing.

    Does anyone know how to correct this?
    Glen

    Re: Missing Icons and file names with Xfce

    What appearance theme and icon theme are you using? (look in Settings Manager >> Appearance). Have you tried changing them to see if it helps? For the gedit issue, you should try with a GTK3 theme like Greybird or Bluebird).

    Thanks Toz.
    I tried your suggestions but no success.
    I seems icons are not found by Thunar.
    The gedit problem seems more like a bug.

    Can we see the results of:
    Code:
    ps -ef | grep xf
    ...as well as:
    Code:
    xfconf-query -c xsettings -lv

    Re: Missing Icons and file names with Xfce

    Is this xubuntu or xfce4 on some *buntu (other than xubuntu)?

    I have exprienced this and it is very odd:
    1) Have icons in new Xubuntu install (14.04)
    2) No icons if I install xfce4 on Ubuntu and switch to it.
    3) No icons if I do a fresh isntall of Xubuntu 14.04 with an already present /home partition of xubuntu 12.04

    Unfortunately I have no solution and haven't persuited it as xfce is not my DE.

    Thanks monkeybrain20122 I am new to ubuntu and Xfce4 but your experience sounds like it echos mine.
    I installed ubuntu 14.04 and then installed and switched to Xfce4.

    Try installing the gnome-icon-theme-full and tango-icon-theme packages:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-icon-theme-full tango-icon-theme
    ...log out and back in again, then change the icon theme in Settings Manager >> Appearance >> Icons.

    Re: Missing Icons and file names with Xfce

    You have cracked it Toz the icons are now alive. Thanks.

    That leaves gedit . I could not discover a method that would apply your original suggestion:
    For the gedit issue, you should try with a GTK3 theme like Greybird or Bluebird).

    Re: Missing Icons and file names with Xfce

    Can you upload a screenshot of it?

    According to your previous post, you are using the Xfce-4.0 Appearance theme. Can you change it to Greybird or Bluebird and see if it helps. If you don't have those themes installed, try installing the shimmer themes package:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install shimmer-themes
    I'm thinking it might be a GTK3 issue and you need to use an appearance theme that supports GTK3. Xfce-4.0 does not.

    After you've done so, can you post back again:
    Code:
    xfconf-query -c xsettings -lv
    NOTE: To change the appearance theme, go to Settings Manager >> Appearance.

    Re: Missing Icons and file names with Xfce

    Hi Toz, gedit now has file names, thanks.

    None of the Xfce styles or Raleigh work, the gedit page tab tile space is black, the other style produce a readable file name. I am now using Bluebird
    I enclose the following for you debug info. The shimmer themes did not show up in Appearance>Styles.
    Code:
    glen@hp-dev:~$ sudo apt-get install shimmer-themes
    [sudo] password for glen: 
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    shimmer-themes is already the newest version.
    0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 12 not to upgrade.
