That's just what it is: your gtk+ icon theme (if any) does not seem to
have the 'text-plain' file type icon, and the hicolor theme (recommended
by gtk+) is not installed either.

gtk+ searches for icons in certain directories. Find classviewer-var.png
under ~/bin/geany, and add it's directory (or it's parent directory?)
to XDG_DATA_DIRS. See [1] for more information, gtk+3 is the same.

I don't know how you can get this error, except by compiling Geany
against gtk+ >= 2.20, and running it with gtk+ < 2.20.
