From a brief glance, I would say that the user needs to install the breeze
icon theme.

The Kexi package in Kubuntu/Ubuntu is a direct, automatic import from
Debian, and as such is not actually touched by Kubuntu or Ubuntu folks at
all. As a so-called Universe (1) package, it has zero testing and only has
support from the community - i.e. not officially supported.

I think the user is hitting this bug (2) (3)

I imagine it should be fairly simple to fix.
It would be worth reporting this on Launchpad (4)

In Ubuntu/Kubuntu, the Kexi package is one that has been automatically
imported from Debian. This "Universe" (1) package is not tested at all,
and only has community support - i.e. not officially supported.

From a quick glance, it seems that the user can fox this by installing the
Breeze icon theme, as it appears that they are hitting this bug (2) (3).

It seems like a fairly simple fix, so a bug report on launchpad (4) may be
a good idea.

Re: Can anyone try to run Kexi on Kubuntu 17.10?

Rik Mills-2
In reply to this post by Clay Weber-2
This is fixed in debian with commit:

https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-kde/calligra/kexi.git/commit/?id=c5c79c5cf87d8e5e4ee6ac28e9e4d01073b1cd0d

in 1:3.0.2-3 or later

this will autosync to bionic when those syncs are turned on.

meanwhile we can look at an SRU for artful.

Rik
