I have installed Live Tex full in Ubuntu 12.04 with which Texstudio 2.7.0 is installed. However, there is no visible icon on the menu bars. They exist on the task bar and are clickable, but there is no visible graphics in them.

Please look at the following image: enter image description here

You can only see left, center, and right alignment icons in the left and few list on the tool box menu.

Any help to sort it out?

  • I suggest you to install the newest version from here texstudio.sourceforge.net

  • If the most recent version does not work either, check if the qsvgicon library is installed. Commented Jun 21, 2014 at 17:03
  • This (based on this) might help: close TXS, run sudo apt-get install libqt4-svg and restart.

I had this issue myself once. Googling led to my own question on askubuntu.com and ultimately yielded:

  1. close TXS

  2. run sudo apt-get install libqt4-svg

  3. restart TXS
