Appearance Preferences Interface Tab

Unfortunately, icons are gone in all Context Menu by default since openSUSE 11.3. Even worse is that the Interface has been removed from the Appearance Preferences Window.

I think i am not the only people, who would rather remember the menu item position than search for its label. So I became very unproductive when I have to face a very long context menu of Eclipse without any icons.

Here is the way to give it back:

  1. In the terminal, call up gconf-editor 
  2. Navigate to desktop/gnome/interface
  3. Scroll down and check the menus_have_icons box.
Have fun ;-)
