Menus with Icons in Ubuntu Karmic++

With the update to karmic koala ubuntu reversed the color scheme of context menus. Before the foreground had been dark and the background bright. Now, guess what, it’s the other way around. With this change, the property for showing icons in context menus has been disabled, too. This is due to transparency problems. Unfortunately, programs like eclipse make extensive use of this feature. So, not having these icons anymore is more than annoying.

You may use ‘gconf-editor’ and set the property ‘/desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons’ to ‘true’. That’s it.
