Software - Desktop Icons not refreshed after software installs

Post subject: Desktop Icons not refreshed after software installs
I installed a few apps like pidgin and LibreOffice 3.3.1 (with the KDE integration) plus KGet and some others but I noticed the icons aren't refreshed or updated by the GUI, i.e. LO 3.3.1 icons look still like the old OOo 3.0 ones but if I open the properties window I find the new The Document Foundation style icon right there, already selected. I don't know what's happening here, why the icons db isn't properly updated. Can anyone give a hint on what I can do to fix this weird issue?

Does hit F5 refresh the icons?

Perhaps I could post the results of libreoffice since openoffice isn't installed on my aptosid box.

# dpkg -l | grep libreoffice*

what if you change your icons (system settings) and then change them back to the ones you want (wait for the system to update)

does that do anything ?

maybe you could post what i asked for?
are you saying, you tried the command and it had no output?
or are you saying:
no need for that command, its not installed?

just refresh the chached stuff, i.e. delete the related temp-files and the icon-cache. after that LO shows the new icons.

Where would the icon-cache be located?

I saw the same effect and "...grep openoffice*" gave null/none.

My workaround was, to getting the symbols manually one by one.

/.kde/cache-hostname/kpc

~/.kde/cache-<hostname> is (usually) a symlink to /var/tmp/kdecache-<username>

do NOT remove ~/.kde/cache-* itself, only remove the kpc directory, that's
the pixmap/icon cache, kde * should * regenerate it

Deleting the icon cache sounds promising.
