icons change in KDE and Gnome


the first day i ran my MDK9.2 installation (about a week ago), the icons in the K menu were bigger (for example, the icon for the amusement section, the office section, etc).
now they suddenly changed, and theyre really small and instead of a cool icon, its this boring blue folder icon.

whats weirder is that all of them were like this. now that i installed aMSN (gaim wouldnt work for some reason) some changed to the cool icons again. specifically, Applications, Configuration, Multimedia and Networking (and all categories inside) went back to the cool icons.

i dont know if this'll help or not, but for some reason, when the icons went to the boring blue folders, some applications disappeared from the menu as well
for example: in Configuration>KDE> i only had "Power Control" and "Peripherals", and now that it went back to the cool icons, i have: Accessibility, Components, Information, Look n Feel, Network, Peripherals, Power Control, Security, Sound, System, Web Browsing.

is it normal for the icons to change like this? if not, how i can i change them back to the cool ones instead of plain old boring blue folders?

this happens in Gnome too, and i've no idea why some days the icons are in the "boring" state and others theyre in their "fun" state

thx!
Apu

sometimes when you install software on mandrake, it doesn't update the menu correctly. If you run menudrake as your own user and push update or refresh to rebuild the menu, it should work. make sure you update the menu for the right enviroment though.
