After upgrading to 11.10 a couple of days ago, icons appeared in the menu. Now of course I want to get rid of them.
I searched on Google and it seems like they should have been there all the time but they first appeared after the upgrade, and for me it seems a bit overkill to have both icons and text. And I'm finding myself not being able to quickly find in the menus as before, strange eh.
So I read somewhere about these commands:
gconftool --set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_has_icons --type bool false gconftool --set /desktop/gnome/interface/buttons_have_icons --type bool false
should remove them but it doesn't seem to work. Any other ideas out there?
