Evolution, XFCE4, and OpenBSD

In order to properly run the Evolution email client in XFCE4 on an OpenBSD system, you must ensure that a default icon theme is set.  Note that this is only required when running Evolution outside of the Gnome X Windows environment.  To select a default icon theme, create a “.gtkrc-2.0” file in your home directory and add a line to set which icon theme to use.  Refer to the example below for more details.


# cd ~
# echo "gtk-icon-theme-name=gnome" >> .gtkrc-2.0
# startxfce4
