Created attachment 118898 [details]
Options setting showing missing expanders on left panel.

Libreoffice Version: Build ID: 00m0(Build:2)

openSUSE Tumbleweed: 20150909
KDE Plasma Version: 5.4.0
Window decoration: Oxygen 5.4.0
Widget style: Oxygen 5.4.0

Tree expanders are missing from the left panel of the Options settings. The only way to expand a category is by double clicking. (Expanders are present when using Breeze).

Attached screen-shot showing missing expanders.

Should also have added...

Libreoffice Icon size and style: Small / Oxygen

Could not reproduce.

I changed everything I could to Oxygen, but for the life of me I could not change the Window decorations!
Installed kde-style-oxygen-qt4, plasma-theme-oxygen, oxygen-cursor-theme, but look and feel did not show Oxygen.

Are the expanders missing for you even though your Window decorations are not Oxygen?

I had made quite a few changes so started fresh with a new (KDE) user profile and new LO profile.

It seems that this is an issue with the LO Oxygen icon theme - not the desktop theme or window decoration, as I at first thought.

As I initially, stated I'm using:
Libreoffice Icon size and style: Small / Oxygen

With this the expanders _are_ missing.

If I change this to:
Libreoffice Icon size and style: Small / Breeze

The expanders are correctly shown.

I decided to try other LO icon themes - the ones currently installed were:

Using hicontrast the expanders are correctly shown.

I then installed Tango

The expanders are correctly shown.

At this point I switched back to:
Libreoffice Icon size and style: Small / Oxygen

The expanders _are now_ correctly shown when using LO Oxygen icons

I then un-installed 

The expanders are now again missing when using LO Oxygen icons.

Now I'm guessing that what is happening is that the expander icon is actually missing from the (LO) Oxygen icon theme, and it falls back to, or inherits Tango.

For the moment I will simply install, but not 'use' the Tango theme.

If you remove any libreoffice-icon-themes other than:

then I expect you will be able to duplicate this bug.

Whether it's worth pursuing is debatable :)

Many thanks.

Nope, I didn't have Tango icon theme to begin with.
Comment 5 Paul 2015-09-24 10:31:25 UTC
OK... Don't understand this then... weird :)

Using "Libreoffice Icon size and style: Small / Oxygen" without "libreoffice-icon-theme-tango" present the expanders are missing. With "libreoffice-icon-theme-tango" and the expanders are shown.

As it 'works for you' and I have a 'fix' I guess we'll leave it at that. Thanks for your time in looking at this.

I will poke the design team about this on IRC.

Hi Paul,

Icon themes are depended on more complete icon themes, so if the dependency icon themes arent installed, icons will show up missing in dependent icon themes. This issue has to be fix by package maintainers by setting the necessary dependency packages for icon themes packages.
