Yes, that's what I thought it is.

They are installed:

rosti@saturn:~ % pkg info | grep icons-tango
icons-tango-0.8.90_2           Basic set of icons for the most common usage
icons-tango-extras-0.1.0_5     A extra set of icons from the Tango project

Aren't those icons part of the following xfce4 packages?

xfce4-mixer-4.10.0_4 ==> (mixer)
xfce4-settings-4.10.1 ==> (keyboard)

Or is it a dependecy bug?

What about "Run Program..." menu item (the Application Finder)? Isn't
it a standard and mandatory part of xfce4?

BTW a big icon of the Application Finder in a panel exists.

What about icons in the left top corner of the window? Are they the
same icons as used in the application menu?

I have Tango and hicolor directories in the /usr/local/share/icons one.

Could it be a bug in the Tango theme and some icons are just missed in
it or in its FreeBSD package? In Settings | Appearence | Icons I have
only Tango.
