Bug Description

It seems that Qt 4.6 (or its Ubuntu package patches) contains a regression. Applications based on Qt 4 no longer display the icons relative to each action in the menus. It affects both actions in software top menu bars and actions in custom right-click menus.

Qt 4.5.3 is rendering the menu icons properly. The problem appeared when switching from Qt 4.5 to Qt 4.6 (in Lucid).

You can, for example, reproduce the issue with linguist-qt4 (it happens with all qt4 apps I tested: linguist, designer, qbittorrent, ...)

I found out from fedora documentation that Gnome >= 2.28 does not display menu icons as a default.

These commands fixed the issue:
gconftool-2 --type boolean --set /desktop/gnome/interface/buttons_have_icons true
gconftool-2 --type boolean --set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons true

Ok, thanks for researching that. Marking this as invalid since it's intentional behavior on GTK's part.

Changed in qt4-x11 (Ubuntu):
