Description

After installing lightdm and mate, the document-properties icon shows as a broken icon in lightdm-gtk-greeter. The icon exists.

The workaround to get the icon to display is to remove the icon cache files so they can be regenerated. This command removes all the icon cache files, just in case there are other problematic icons:

sudo find /usr/share/icons/ -name *.cache -exec rm {} \;

logout and lightdm will show the proper icon for document-properties.

I guess we should add this hint in the user documentation.
Thank you!

After writing the initial report, I discovered the command gtk-update-icon-cache. Another possible work-around (untested) might be:
sudo find /usr/share/icons -maxdepth 1 -type d -exec gtk-update-icon-cache -f {} \;
