Enabling icons in Qt4 apps on GNOME / GTK

By admin | June 3, 2012

By default on the latest versions of Debian and Ubuntu, the gconf preferences “/desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons” and “/desktop/gnome/interface/buttons_have_icons” are set to false by default. Despite this, GTK2 and GTK3 applications both display icons next to their menus by default. However, Qt4-based applications such as VLC media player don’t display icons. To fix this:

gconftool --type boolean --set /desktop/gnome/interface/buttons_have_icons true
gconftool --type boolean --set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons true

Or, open gconf-editor and set both “/desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons” and “/desktop/gnome/interface/buttons_have_icons” to true.
