Just added a new article to the Wiki about setting up GTK theme:

Thanks for the contribution.

I've been trying on and off for ages to understand how to get all of the icons in rhythmbox to display using an "official" method as opposed to "blunt instrument".

The "blunt instrument" method is basically to delete /usr/local/share/icons/hicolor and to replace it with a symlink  hicolor -> gnome.

I'm sure your article is part of the solution, as is (perhaps) "update-gtk-icon-cache -q -f -t /usr/local/share/icons/hicolor", but any suggestions would be welcome.

I remember your long lasting problem with rythmbox. Unfortunately I have never tried it. Setup described in Wiki works for all environment and extensions I'm using.

may work in a specific case but breaks the theme environment due to hardcoded gnome theme :( It looks a rhythmbox issue. Or it is not a bug but something is still missing which is expected by only rythmbox. Checking other distributions may help.

well, well, well - the trick is:
Code: [Select]
"gtk-update-icon-cache -q -f -t /usr/local/share/icons/hicolor"
..note "gtk-update-" and not "update-gtk-"

I guess hicolor-icon-theme needs to be added as a rhythmbox dep  :P
