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
I also enabled Buttons have icons for good measure.
For Ubuntu 12.10, install Gnome Tweak Tool and enable icons in Theme
For Ubuntu 14.04 I couldn't find that setting in either
gnome-tweak-tool. While you can use gconf-editor, it has no effect in eclipse. Instead the following worked for me:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface menus-have-icons true gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface buttons-have-icons true
On Ubuntu 16.04, use:
dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/interface/menus-have-icons true dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/interface/buttons-have-icons true
