I really like Nautilus file manager, but on KDE the icons are missing. It works good on Unity and Gnome.

If I start nautilus from Terminal (writting nautilus) I see the following logs:

$ nautilus
Initializing nautilus-dropbox 1.4.0

How can I fix them?

I also see "X" icons in other applications running under KDE.

For having your GTK3 applications show icons correctly you need a set of packages installed:

sudo apt-get install kdeartwork-theme-icon gtk3-engines-oxygen kde-config-gtk-style

You also need to configure GTK applications to use oxygen, look for KDE System Settings -> Appearance panel, make sure that using KDE themes in GTK apps is activated. This should give you the kde-look into your GTK applications.

2016-02 I also had my icons disappear.

Fixed it by going to "System Settings -> Appearance" and selecting a theme, the setting was blank.
