I use Ubuntu 12.04 and I have enabled icons in menus. Everything works fine except Inkscape that shows a lot of "missing" icons. What is wrong and how can I fix it?

Which missing icons? can you add a screenshot? – Tom Brossman Jul 15 '12 at 20:00
It is, but just set a 2-3 second delay and do it. – Tom Brossman Jul 15 '12 at 20:06
I got it but I don't have enough "reputation" to post it. – jesurun Jul 15 '12 at 20:12
Upload it somewhere and post a link, I'll add it for you. – Tom Brossman Jul 15 '12 at 20:15

This is a long running bug for which there are workarounds (see comments #29 and #30 in the bug).
