Thread: Icon is missing in Context menu (11.4 with GNome)

    Cool Icon is missing in Context menu (11.4 with GNome)

    Hello All,

    I switched from 11.2 to 11.4 yesterday. I noticed that the Appearance dialog has only three tabs instead of four tabs. The last tab "Interfaces" does not exist, in where I can select "Show Icon in Context Menu". But I do not know, how to show icons in context menu.

    Any hints are appreciated

    There is a known issue with icons in gnome
    I don't have a solution, but mine are back now. It seemed to be post install of multimedia+ which included wxwidgets
    Most missing icons are kde icons if you have kde apps (thunderbird too if you have installed it)
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    Probably you just need to run "gtk-update-icon-cache". The problem isn't really new, but since SuSEconfig doesn't run it anymore I suppose more people will notice it.

    I do not mean that icons are missing. Previously there is an option to show icons in context menu. (For instance, if this option is enabled, I can see icons on the context menu in Eclipse.) But in 11.4 this option is gone.

    i just read this "I finally found out what went wrong: It seems like
    gtk-query-immodules-2.0-64 did not get run" in this thread
    http://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php?t=455099

    and wonder if it too used to be run by SuSEconfig....AND, maybe lots
    of gtk setup should **continue** to be run by SuSEconfig ????

    or, maybe some devs wanna write a page or three for the wiki on the
    workaround we require our gtk lovers to do, from now on ??
