Re: KIconLoader problem

Taken from http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=241283 at the end.

Works ok as a workaround.

run in a shell (I cannot find this on any menu): kdebugdialog --fullmode
select: debug area: 264 kdecore (KIconLoader)
Change the Warning Output to "None"
select: OK

I'm rather new to KDE (managed more thenm 6 years to get around it ;-), but now that I switched to it (the most recent version which comes along with Debian unstable) I have run across on annoying problem as described in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=253127 :

When ever I start a KDE program I get lots of warning messages like this

  kdecore (KIconLoader): WARNING: Icon directory /usr/share/icons/hicolor/
  group 16x16/stock/chart not valid. kdecore (KIconLoader): WARNING: Icon
  directory /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ group 16x16/stock/code not valid.
  kdecore (KIconLoader): WARNING: Icon directory /usr/share/icons/hicolor/
  group 16x16/stock/data not valid. kdecore (KIconLoader): WARNING: Icon
  directory /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ group 16x16/stock/form not valid.
  kdecore (KIconLoader): WARNING: Icon directory /usr/share/icons/hicolor/
  group 16x16/stock/image not valid.

This annoyes on the command line and if any programm is started from the KDE menu, panel, shortcut etc. then it fills up the ~/.xsession-errors file rapidely (which I have linked now to /dev/null after it has grown rapidly within a very short time to more than 250kB).

Sofar I have tried to search the web and it seems that the problem is anything else but new. But I have found no solution to this sofar. Does somebody of you know how to fix this problem manualy until it get fixed within Debian or upstream.

What is actually causing the problem? I've read something about that the file /usr/share/icons/hicolor/index.theme is not ok. Can somebody point me to some documentation about it?

Thanxs a lot,
- Martin
