If you build from cvs, it wont provide icons. You can do one or two things;

Just start it from the command line or
Add an icon yourself to the desktop or where ever, you will find appropriate
icons in


Icons are provided in distros via the courtesy of the packagers. Different for
each distro

No thats not what i meant. I understand that part.  I simply use the Add To
Panel tool to create my own.
However I meant that when Scribus has started and is ready to receive text or
images on a blank page , the selection menu bars at the top  of the work space
are blank. no drop downs, no Properties dialog, nothing but a blank work space
with blank  grey menu bars. file, Insert, Edit, etc not present.

I go to the scribus folder and use the icon supplied therein.
