XFCE context menu icons missing


Not a major issue but they disappeared
I mean, I am pretty sure the context menu had icons, right?

Yes, it does. When everything else fails, just get rid of your ~/.config directory, log out, log back in and start over with a sane default configuration for Xfce.

My Xfce desktop is in French, but I will try to translate it back into english. You can set or unset a parameter for displaying icons in the menus. It's in Xfce settings > Appearance > Parameters > Menus and buttons. Watch out for the checkbox that says "Display menu icons". Somehow this must have been unset in your configuration.

Cheers,

Niki

Well, gonna check that because it keeps resetting
EDIT: Just checked it and the option is marked, so that is not the cause of the problem
EDIT2: It only happens under i3 session

Just BTW: Icons in menus are "deprecated" in GTK 3 and will be removed completely in future versions of the toolkit. They are now disabled by default.
