Your english is quite hard to read, but it seems that you have 2 problems. A, your theme is bad, and B, your lacking icons.

For problem A, I would suggest you grab x11-themes/clearlooks, as it is a very common and nice looking theme.

For problem B, Grab misc/gnome-icon-theme. Yes, I know that it is the gnome icon theme, but many programs use this theme for their everyday icons.

Make sure you set up the system to use clearlooks, and the icon theme should take effect after a restart of X.

If this is not the problem you had, please try to explain more.

Good luck,
