I recommended fixing the permissions on that directory.

Looking at the trace file and your screenshots, I think that you still
have a bunch of permissions problems which is causing emacs not to be
able to load a lot of stuff, including icons.

I am not familiar with Arch Linux (I use debian), so you may be better
off at this point to ask on the Arch lists/fora for help sorting this
