Re: Hicolor icon theme

Hi John,

Or, in a more detailed fashion, this is what you can do about this, it took me a while to figure this out: (This assumes that your GTK+2/3 main DLLs are in c:\foo\bin, adjust to your paths accordingly)

-Get the latest release tarball from, it is 0.12 at this time, and put the index.theme file somewhere from the archive into c:\foo\share\icons\hicolor (This will stop GTK+ from saying that it can't find the icon themes and crashing, but that does not provide the icon images, so you would see lots of missing images) -Get the latest release stable (3.10.x at this time, except for gnome-icon-theme-extras which is at 3.6.x) tarballs of gnome-icon-theme, gnome-icon-theme-extras and gnome-icon-theme-symbolic from the GNOME FTP, look for those names there. --Open the archives for the 3 gnome-icon-theme- tarballs and go to the "gnome" directory in each of them and copy everything in there to c:\foo\share\icons\hicolor --Be aware that in order for the symbolic items to show in the GTK+ programs, you need to build and install LibRSVG with its GDK-Pixbuf loader and generate the loaders.cache file in c:\foo\lib\gdk-pixbuf-2.0\2.10.0 using c:\foo\bin\gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders.exe > c:\foo\lib\gdk-pixbuf-2.0\2.10.0\loaders.cache after you built LibRSVG*

*Your GDK-Pixbuf must have built with "#define USE_GMODULE 1" in its config.h; LibRSVG depends on libcroco and libxml2 in addition to Pango/PangoCairo.

Hope this explains things a bit.

With blessings.
