Missing icons in K-menu - strange


Recently I have noticed that program folder icons (not the program icons themselves) have disappeared from my K-menu, and have all been replaced by the same the standard folder icon (the one used by konqueror to display folders on your filesystem).

Strangely, when I go into the Menudrake menu editor, all the correct icons are shown, but they don't show up in the K-menu itself!

Any ideas what I can do to get them back?

Don't know if it helps, but you could try to do as user in console:
update-menus -v
This is helpful if you install software that don't show up in the menus.

I had the same thing happen today - when I went into the Menudrake menu editor, all the correct icons are shown, but they didn't show up in the K-menu itself. I just replaced the .config file (using one from the home directory of another login) and corrected one or two customised entries and it all worked OK. From my experience with Menudrake (both in LE2005 and 2006) it is a bit of a rum doodle job. Sometimes I open the menu editor and do a "save" to pick up missing entries.
