Sorry, I meant by using gconftool-2 -s.

no it wasn't ;)

When I use the (great) gnome-theme-manager, everything works as
expected, except for:
- I get a number of popups with 'file not found' errors
(xine|xscreensaver|network.xpm and gnome-hint|mozilla-mailnews.png)
- the .desktop files on the desktop and in the preferences:/// stay
unusable and get the default-document icon from the icon-theme I choose.

Exactly that. Currently is set to 'gnome'

I probably should mention the fact that last week I manually removed ALL
gnome and gtk related directories in /etc and /usr and ~/, then
'aptitude purge'd all gnome and gtk related packages and then
reinstalled them all. I did this because at that time, not only the
desktop icons didn't work, but all new gnome interface-related tools
stopped working. Now everything works fine except for the problems
mentioned above. I also should mention that after the reinstall of
mentioned above, I installed the following gdm from cvs to get the
graphical greeter to work:
ii  gdm          

As far as I can remember, I did not do other really stupid things (..)
