The notepad application example runs without problems on my Raspberry Pi. But the menu bar shows no icons. just blank rectangles. They do work if I click on them. What could be the problem?

Open the file notepad.py and go after this:

python
def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
    super(MainWindow, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)

add the following lines:

python
    icon = QIcon(os.path.join('images', 'blue-flolder-open-document.png'))
    print("availableSizes:", icon.availableSizes())

the output on the terminal should be:

python
 availableSizes: [PyQt5.QtCore.QSize(16, 16)]

if it is different, for example:

python
availableSizes: []

try to replace all the occurrences of:

python
join('images',

to:

python
join(path,

where path is the absolute path of your images folder for example:

python
path = '/home/USER_NAME/notepad/forum/images'

if the notepad folder is in the USER_NAME folder.
