Congrats. Once you are done with the build try to make an installer so
that everyone can use.


Yes, in-fact I am building a stand-alone application that does not even need an installer - you just drag the icon where you want and double-click it to start using it...

Note that here on Mac OS X I had to build "" and
"" as a dynamic library (.dylib) file instead
of shared object (.so) to get things linked. The .so objects are also
needed, but I had to create .dylibs for LD to be happy. Generally Mac
OS X does not like linking to a .so...

But, I now have missing icons, and no errors are being reported
regarding the missing icons. In previous build attempts, I was also
missing icons and a was getting an error about hicolor not being
located (I no longer have the exact message, and I determined that
there was a problem with my libpixbufloader).  I then rebuilt my
entire GNOME/GTK and now I do not get any errors, but to my surprise
the icons are still missing.

Note that Gnumeric (1.6.3) built on the same GNOME/GTK build does not
have any missing icons, and appears normal.

oh, Wait! I faced this while I built evo on mac.

Try setting XDG_DATA_DIRS to your share folder. It should solve the

Interesting. When I set 'XDG_DATA_DIRS' to my share directory I get no errors, and if I set it to anything else I get the hicolor message:

(evolution-2.10:18670): Gtk-WARNING **: Could not find the icon 'stock_mail'. The 'hicolor' theme
was not found either, perhaps you need to install it.
You can get a copy from:

Also, check if you have installed your hicolor or some theme. If you
launch gnome-theme-manager once and then start Evolution it should show
all the icons.

I have in my share/icons dir:

drwxr-xr-x   10 jeshua  jeshua   340 Apr 24 01:25 gnome
drwxr-xr-x   16 jeshua  jeshua   544 Jun  6 02:23 hicolor

And in my share/themes dir I have:

drwxr-xr-x   4 jeshua  jeshua  136 Jun  2 21:57 Default
drwxr-xr-x   3 jeshua  jeshua  102 Jun  2 21:57 Emacs
drwxr-xr-x   3 jeshua  jeshua  102 Jun  2 21:57 Raleigh

I guess I will try installing the 'gnome-theme-manager' next...
