Restore Gnome menu icons

On the panel I like using the default main menu applet. Well in Fedora, Mint and Ubuntu some of the icons are not there from Places on down to Shutdown. Well to restore them there are two ways the quickest is to run in a terminal

gconftool-2 --type bool --set  /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons true

second way is to use gconf-editor and follow the path

desktop>gnome>interface and check the entry menus_have_icons

and that is it the icons are back.
