I don't see any warnings. Maybe because you are running a Custom install with added applications (which I don't use by the way). You are getting a gtk error like you think of some sort. Have you tried changing to a different gtk 2 and icon theme via control center.
And no, I have not had this kind of breakage on my AntiX 8.5 installs on my Netbooks. But I do
# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
instead of just
Because dependencies are resolved better. I also check Debian Weather usually before doing the above.Edit:
Forgot to mention. On a apt-get dist-upgrade. You have to add a user named demo before doing apt-get dist-upgrade in AntiX 8.5. Wicd breaks if you don't add a user named demo in AntiX 8.5. Haven't tested this yet in AntiX 11 yet though.
