Icons don't appear in dropdown menus in Eclipse. I know that in Gnome this bug can be cured by this way: Icons on menus have disappeared but it doesn't work in Unity. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I just had the same issue in Eclipse Indigo in Ubuntu 11.10. Ubuntu Tweak did the trick for me.

Just go to Tweaks > Miscellaneous > Menus have icons

enter image description here

I also enabled Buttons have icons for good measure.

Before: enter image description here

After: enter image description here

For Ubuntu 12.10, install Gnome Tweak Tool and enable icons in Theme

For Ununtu 14.04 i couldn't find that setting in either unity-tweak-tool or gnome-tweak-tool

instead install and run gconf-editor and enable
