I'm using a Debian Buster minimal install with i3 as the window manager. I'm trying to move to Dolphin from the KDE Project for a file manager, but no icons are displayed.

If I export XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=KDE before starting dolphin in the console, icons are displayed. I also installed something. While troubleshooting, I got sloppy and didn't write down what I tried. I installed qt5ct, but removed that later as Dolphin looked off with that. plasma-integration is installed.

Now the issue is, that I got switching mouse cursors for some applications. For example Firefox and Dolphin now use the KDE mouse cursor, Chromium and Thunar do not.

Ideally I'd like to use Dolphin with the default KDE icons and nothing else. The mouse cursor was fine as it was before I tried to use Dolphin.
