I saw in default gnome theme icons when I clicked right the mouse. The icons are very useful for orientation in the menu.
See the picture below. How can I add some icons to standard ubuntu theme?
If there no icon pack how can I add my own icons?
You can enable this option (It's disabled by default) in the configuration manager. This should be available through Applications -> System Tools -> Configuration Manager (The System Tools menu may be hidden - you can make it visible by going to System -> Preferences -> Main Menu and selecting the checkbox next to System Tools, and possibly the one next to Configuration Editor in side the System Tools menu). Alternatively you can run
gconf-tool from the command line.
You'll need to navigate to desktop -> gnome -> interface
menus_have_icons and check the box.
If you want the quick one liner you can enter the following in your terminal
gconftool --set --type bool /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons 0
This is the outcome
See comment 4 for bug 974915 "Nautilus Context menu missing icons".

icons for most components got turned off like 2 years ago, they are only there in menu for objects like applications or directories, not for actions etc

it's not a bug, it's a design decision
But the following tip works!
Alt+F2→ run gnome-tweak-tool
For ubuntu 12.04 to 15.04+
To enable menu have icons, run:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface menus-have-icons true
To enable button have icons, run:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface buttons-have-icons true
To do it graphically install
