This bug report will be more effective if you made good summary for Debian.

I dug this in a bit clicking unfamiliar Ubuntu world :-) So problem happens for: KDE

Ikuya also have good document of bug at launch pad. (Excuse me CCing all
address I found for Ikuya.)

This is error message when start ibus-daemon -x -v.

Traceback (most recent call last):

    pixbuf = theme.load_icon(gtk.STOCK_MISSING_IMAGE, size, 0)
glib.GError: Icon 'gtk-missing-image' not present in theme

I hope I did not miss any patch suggestion.

It looks like gnome-icon-theme package is needed as I searched such file.  This
may be OK to have gnome-themes-extras or tango-icon-theme as substitute.

This dependency comes from "import gtk".  This is python-gtk2 package dependency.
This does not lead to any icon file dependency.  This may be OK since not all of them use icons.

But how should I add dependency.

Depends: gnome-icon-theme | gnome-themes-extras | tango-icon-theme | ... (what comes here)

I do not want to force particular theme.  So maybe I should use Suggests instead.

What do you all think how to solve this?
