I am using Kubuntu 13.04 (Raring) 64-bit. After upgrading to KDE SC 4.11.2 (from ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports) GTK applications mostly do not use the icons selected in Kubuntu's GTK KCM. I say mostly because in a very few places such as back and forward buttons, and folders in GTK file choosers the icons selected in the KCM are used. All other icons are either from the default Oxygen icon theme or from the default GNOME icon theme (varies with the icon theme selected). I have neither GNOME nor any of the gnome-icon-theme packages installed. I get this behaviour in most icon themes including KFaenza and elementary USU, however, in a very few themes, such as Fluorine, all icons in GTK applications are the correct ones from the theme. I have searched a lot on the Web but found no solution. Is there a way to make GTK applications use all icons correctly from the icon theme selected in the KCM?

try installing all packages for oxygen (kde-default-theme) for applications:

Some programs require own oxygen packages like libreoffice:
