Fix missing icons and ugly theme in Evolution on Kubuntu 11.10

This how Evolution looks like on Kubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric).

To fix this, make sure this package is installed: “humanity-icon-theme”, then create $HOME/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

[Settings]
gtk-fallback-icon-theme = Humanity

Restart Evolution, and it should be fixed.

Fix: Xfce 4.10 panel no longer expands

After upgrading to Xfce 4.10 from 4.8, I noticed that the clock/notification area no longer pushed to the right edge of the panel.

This is due to a change in the Window Buttons panel plugin which no longer expands to fill the available space[1].

To emulate the old behavior, add a transparent separator between the window buttons and the clock/notification area, setting its expand property.

Voilla!
