as a side note: the icon is properly shown in the full version of the xubuntu 14.04. The only difference to my system I see is the icon copy in the /usr/share/app-install/icons/menulibre.svg (it's because I do not install the app-install-data package and I do not have app-install folder). But if I remove the icon together with the /usr/share/app-install/icon-theme.cache on the full installed system the setting dialog still shows the icon correctly. There must be some other way for xfce to find icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor

as a side note 2: as freedesktop specification states: $XDG_DATA_DIRS/icons specifies places where icons should be searched for. As far as /usr/share/icons/hicolor is specified in that var, no additional actions are required for the menulibre installer. For some reason my system doesn't look into the /usr/share/icons/hicolor folder and also there's no icon-theme.cache file created there. Some package is still missing I suppose by me. I suppose this bug should be marked as invalid. Sorry for spamming

The icon is now installed into the pixmaps directory as needed for some systems. This can be verified by the package listing.

The following output is generated as a result of "dpkg-deb -c /var/cache/apt/archives/menulibre_2.0.4-1~ubuntu14.04.1_all.deb"

And from this output:
-rw-r--r-- root/root 1634 2014-07-16 03:42 ./usr/share/pixmaps/menulibre.png
