Hello,

I've installed the Calligra suite from the Arch pacman Extra repository, and apart from Krita the other programs (notably Words, and Karbon) are missing tool icons, making using the program impossible, see image linked.

Can anyone help me fix this issue?

If Krita comes with calligra, you're getting a really old version... In which case you probably need to install an oxygen icons package.

I think I installed Krita separately, it's version 3.1.4

Karbon is 3.0.1 and so is Words.

These appear to be the latest versions of all applications.

Ah... Then I don't know. I only do Krita these days.

Do you have the "breeze-icons" package installed?

No, I just tried installing them, but Karbon still shows now tools. :(

If you have the breeze icons installed, you can set your global icon theme to breeze and the icons should be there.

If you do not want breeze icons in all your applications, you could also launch karbon or words with
Code: Select all
QT_QPA_PLATFORM_THEME="lxqt" karbon
Code: Select all
QT_QPA_PLATFORM_THEME="lxqt" calligrawords

(assuming your desktop in the screenshot is lxqt, but anyway it seems that the correct icons are shown even using something like QT_QPA_PLATFORM_THEME="" :D)

Sorry for the late reply! I still have this problem

When i try and set the theme it doesn't appear to be applied. I do notice the following output in the console though:

Code: Select all
Invalid Context= "Panel" line for icon theme:  "/usr/share/icons/Numix-Circle/16/panel/"
Invalid Context= "Panel" line for icon theme:  "/usr/share/icons/Numix-Circle/16@2x/panel/"
Invalid Context= "Panel" line for icon theme:  "/usr/share/icons/Numix-Circle/22/panel/"
Invalid Context= "Panel" line for icon theme:  "/usr/share/icons/Numix-Circle/22@2x/panel/"
Invalid Context= "Panel" line for icon theme:  "/usr/share/icons/Numix-Circle/24/panel/"
Invalid Context= "Panel" line for icon theme:  "/usr/share/icons/Numix-Circle/24@2x/panel/"

Sorry for the as well late reply!

Do you at least see the icons if you set Breeze as the icon theme in the LXQt appearance settings instead of Numix-Circle? (You probably don't want this, just to check if breeze icons are available at all)

Within KDE/Plasma environments it is also possible to set the icon theme per application by adding
Code: Select all
[Icons]
Theme=breeze
to the rc file of the application (e.g. ~/.config/calligrawordsrc), however this does not seem to work when the applications are started from LXQt.

What you can do is to let your icon theme inherit from the breeze icon theme.
To do this, edit the file "index.theme" of the icon theme you use and add the desired fallback theme at the end of the "Inherits" line (separeted with ",").
In your case you probably need to edit /usr/share/icons/Numix-Circle/index.theme and change the Inherits line to
Code: Select all
Inherits=Numix,breeze
Then Breeze icons will be used everytime no Numix-Circle or Numix icons are available.
