please bear in mind that I'm an absolute newcomer to (py)gtk.
I'm trying to install the nice synchronization tool

which is written in Python and use pyGTK.

This installed several icons e.g.

When run, Conduit fails to find its icons.

For testing purposes I've tried

import gtk

which produces the error message
  GtkWarning: Could not find the icon 'conduit'. The 'hicolor' theme
was not found either, perhaps you need to install it.
You can get a copy from:

On my Gentoo system lots of packages have placed icons under

So, what am I missing.

Many thanks for a hint,
