Right now, ibus needs the image-missing icon which is in gnome-icon-theme.
I don't think add another backup icon from KDE is a better idea. Because in
that case, ibus will not work, if users do not install both gnome and KDE.
So ibus will need other backup icons (for XFCE, MATE and etc).

So I prefer below two solutions:
1. Just add gnome-icon-theme as a dependance of ibus
2. Add a missing icon in ibus package

What do you think?
