Missing Icons in Gnome System Menu

since i have installed ubuntu 10.04 ,  i have noticed that the icons in the system menu is missing ,  like this


actually i didn't bother .. but today i had some time to kill so i searched about that issue and found that it is a known bug since karmic and the solution is not that hard

here are the steps :

  1. Press Alt+F2 ... type gconf-editor and press run
  2. navigate to : /apps/desktop/gnome/interface
  3. and make sure that the menus_have_icons is marked
here is the gconf-editor screen


and you will have your icons back :)

i also noticed that this option brings icon to many menus in Ubuntu not just the system menu
here is the bug page: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-panel/+bug/442973
hope that was useful
