XFCE Application Menu Icons Missing

After i installed Fedora 18 XFCE i found that it by default doesnt show the icons on the application menu.

I normally navigate it by checking the images and not reading the words, so this inconvenienced me. On checking the properties I found that “Show icons in menu” was checked but it did not seem to work.

However a solution was suggested, and after running it and logging out and in, it worked.

Run this, then restart (or maybe just logout) and it should be fixed next time you login

gconftool-2 --type boolean --set /desktop/gnome/interface/buttons_have_icons true
gconftool-2 --type boolean --set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons true

Leave a comment stating your linux distribution and setup if it worked or ask for any help in the comments.
