Re: How to re-enable icons in menus?

Hi Matthias,

Thank you very much, this works perfectly. Except, as you said, where no
icons are available. But if people decide to remove icons from their
applications, I suppose nobody can do anything about that, though I
don't understand why. Anyway, the context menu in nautilus has enough
"eye catchers" again now to be better usable (though the cut and paste
icons would be helpful, the menu is still a bit "spacey" at the top). (I
think i read somewhere that nautilus can be extended using python, maybe
I'll give it a try when I have time.)

Actually, having the solution, I could google the answer, though this
doesn't help much. It shows that the net (or google at least) will not
be helpful if people don't add version numbers, the search results are
dominated by the "old answer" -- but how could anyone have known that
the previously correct answer would only last until gnome-3.9...

Anyway, being a bit curious about these settings now, is there any kind
of "reference" where those helpful "secrets" are documented (besides
reading the code)?

you didn't say which environment this struggle is happening in, so I'm
just going to assume it is GNOME, and gnome-settings-daemon is
running. In that case,

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides

will do what you are asking for. However, you might find that many
menuitems just don't contain icons anymore - in that case, no setting
will bring it back.
