I have a problem with my Ubuntu Studio 16.04 installation today. It was 
working okay before, but today, when I logged in, most of the icons were 
missing, including inside things like Thunderbird.

I rebooted and then even the icons on the login screen were all gone, 
and when I log in, all icons are missing along with the wallpaper.

I can boot into a different Linux on the same PC and it is all okay with 

I have tried restoring some files (cache files, session files) from a 
known good backup, but it makes no difference. I also tried booting with 
a different kernel and it made no difference.

I wonder if it is a problem with the OS there are even no icons at the 
login screen.

I did not do any major updates lately, although there were quite a lot 
of updates pending, which I was going to install today, but have not 
done so because of this problem.

I have tried searching on Google and could not find any solution.

Does anyone else have this problem? Or know what needs to be fixed? It 
seems like programs can run okay, but without the icons, nothing is 
really much usable.
