Do you use an SVG icon theme (Oxygen)? If you use an SVG-based theme, try

Point of comparison: in my 11.3/3/5 Production system, the icon theme in use
is Crystal SUSE (not Crystal SVG); I think these (below) are the controlling
config files, both with value "<icons name="crystalsuse">":

The 11.4/3.5 installs, both x86& x86_64, only have:

The other file does not exist. Both install have the same values in that
config file, assuming that is the place to look. A quick boot into those
partitions reveals that neither "oxygen" nor "sonar" icons/themes are
installed. No "oxygen" on my production 11.3/3.5 either.

Ilya, should I be looking someplace else for the config files?

If you want to configure you icon size, etc.. while waiting on kcontrol to be fixed, you can use the following ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals as a reference. Just exit kde then edit your ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals and add the following sections:


From the other thread, I think it is either a missing config file or missing entries in an existing config causing a parse error and the kcrash. I'm not very good at debugging this kind of thing, but at least I've got the icon size and theme changed and I can access the icon module now.
