I'm not really sure - KIconLoader or KIconTheme (or both)?
Also, I believe for the toolbar, KStdAction finds the icons
automatically if you use that to set up icons and menus. Obviously,
custom actions will require custom icons - I think the app's
directory under kde3/share is searched for those unless you specify
a different path.

I haven't looked at this stuff in a while and couldn't find
anything poking around quickly. I guess I'd start with the
KStdAction and KAction docs and whatever UI design docs are on the
KDE web site.

I wasn't sure if the original post was in regard to using KDE icons
with PyQt or PyKDE.
