Public bug reported:

These packages are either assumed to be installed or expected to be
available by other packages. It is the default for many packages.
Additionally, the hicolor theme is highly inadequate and missing many
default icons.

If I'm supposed to be able to develop and build on Windows Linux
Subsystem (WLS), then all packages like these need to be available. It
really shouldn't be that challenging to make all build libraries and
icon packages available in all versions of Ubuntu. I've enabled trusty-
updates, trusty-backports, and extras.

I may be able to pull icon packages from other versions, but I still may
have strange dependency issues. (Sometimes dependencies don't make
sense.) Since I'm not dealing with a real Linux kernel, doing a full
upgrade is inadvisable.

It seems that these icons have been available before, but apt does not
give me an alternate package to install the icons. Neither adwaita-icon-
theme or adwaita-icon-theme-full are available. It seems the the full
theme pulls in the cursors.

I've used Ubuntu before and currently dual boot it with Windows. I
figured that other than the limits and quirks of WLS, this would be
fairly easy with my prior experience. I was wrong!
