Bug Description

When using the "Awoken" icon set, the following error is given when attempting to run 'mintbackup' from the terminal.

seventh@seventh-desktop ~ $ mintbackup
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintBackup/", line 1670, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintBackup/", line 183, in __init__
    self.dirIcon = self.iconTheme.load_icon("folder", 16, 0)
gio.Error: Error opening file: No such file or directory
seventh@seventh-desktop ~ $

MintBackup opens when using any other icon theme. Atleast any that I have installed.
I assume this is a simple case of a missing or invalid folder in the icons directory, but I felt it warranted a report, if for nothing else than to let anyone using the icons to know why their MintBackup isnt working.

Running LinuxMint 10 Julia.

Hi, thank you for reporting this issue!
It appears that Awoken breaks compatibility with a few applications, however mintBackup
should still be altered to use a fallback icon in case it cannot find a particular icon.
I will personally fix this, and notify you as soon as this is fixed

Changed to low importance as it does not affect default installation or livecd (confirmed via qemu-kvm)
