Hah, the times I tried sddm was the only one not showing a black screen (when not using pure software-based rendering).

In case you didn't already:

First step would be to remember what icon theme you were using. Then reinstall the corresponding package (I usually use `aptitude reinstall` for that). In systemsettings, choose any other theme if your desired theme is currently selected, apply, and then reselect your desired theme. Do a `kbuildsycoca5 --noincremental` to be sure that cache is really up to date and without stale entries (as well as `kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental` if you have the utility, one never knows). If after that certain applications continue to be shown with the wrong icon, reinstall them too.

HTH. And thanks for confirming my personal opinion that it's still better to hang on to a KDE4 desktop until Kubuntu puts KF5 in a LTS release O:-)
