Thank you.

How did you define them by hand?

Right click on the file, properties, and clicking on the box.

Have you tried to undo what you did?

No, because I would have to know the icon in the new icon theme :-)

I got to do it by editing (the MIME type was "tex" in this case)
~/.kde/share/mimelnk/text/x-tex.desktop and commenting out the line that
indicated the icon.

But I think it is too complicated. I think KDE should have an option to
reset all the icons to the current theme. I would be very happy to submit a
bug, but, against which application?

By the way, I tried Oxygen (the one provided by Debian sid) and gave up. I
did not like it. It looks like the very old icon theme with few
modifications. Why is Oxygen so celebrated then? :-(

Thank you.
