As all you may know, we recently switched to a "no icons" approach in
both menus[1] and buttons[2].

Currently the Appearance capplet provides a checkbox to toggle icons
in menus.

Should we (re)add a checkbox for buttons too? Maybe users that really
want icons on their buttons could appreciate more a checkbox then open
gconf-editor or run gconftool :)
Since the decision has been made to go down this route, I'd be more
inclined to ask if we wanted to remove the checkbox to toggle icons in
menus... but either way, I guess it would make sense to be consistent.
While I personally won't miss the icons in button too much, I like to
keep them in my menus.
I can only echo this. On my system when the icons are gone from menus,
the menus still
look as if there /should/ be icons there, only they're not, which is
really ugly.


If that indenting could be fixed it probably wouldn't look so alien,
but as it stands, it's horrible.
I've been running a gtkrc to remove button images for ages though, so
I really won't miss those.
The indention is there to give space for checks and radio buttons, even if the menu in question don't sport one. If it didn't do that, menus with controls in them would look different from those without. The example in your screenshot is a exception from the guidelines, as it's showing applications. Jon made a patch for that already.
