I like Evince so far, I can read stuff just fine.

However, instead of buttons for navigating, I see buttons with words for Previous or Next (technically, they aren't buttons as they have no borders at all, they are just plain text) and Open Folderas seen in the screenshot below:

Is it possible to get those buttons?

My system information:

  • Xubuntu 12.10

  • Xfce with Greybird theme and the default icon set.

Open up the XFCE Configuration Settings, then go to Appearance, then go to the Configuration tab, after that select Icons from the Toolbar Style drop down menu.
