The issue has been highlighted several times.

are you using qgis 1.7? It has been solved in qgis 1.7... please try again and report back. Thanks.

#2 Updated by Matteo Gismondi over 8 years ago

Dear Giovanni

The issue appear in qgis 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 and 1.8 (I am using the nightly at the moment because finally the raster legend has being implemented)

#3 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 8 years ago

I had this issue in qgis 1.6 under Ubuntu (but not under Windows and Debian). In any case it was fixed somewhere along the road to 1.7. It is now a long that I don't see anymore this issue, that afaik it was only a bug of the Ubuntu packages.

I have checked again now on 3 pc.
Sony vaio tt - Ubuntu 11.04 64bit with qgis 1.7 ---- NO icons
Desktop pc - Ubuntu 10.10 32but with qgis 1.7 ---- NO icons
DELL latitude - Ubuntu 11.04 64bit with qgis 1.8 nightly ---- NO icons

Different machines same problem. There are two options or the bug is still there or I am the most unlucky person in the planet. (under windows or debian there is no such issue I know)

So, no possibility of solving this issue?

Seems a local problem, as many Ubuntu users do not report it

#8 Updated by Matteo Gismondi about 8 years ago

Ok, I give up then. I installed QGIS 1.8 in several machines with ubuntu 11.04 64bit and all have the same issue, that's why I was thinking about a bug. Same error in 4 different pc (2 with clean install after total format)? I guess I am just really unlucky. Thank you anyway for answering.

I can say again that this issue has been solved a while ago. I have made several "fresh" installations of Ubuntu Natty/QGIS 1.7 or Trunk (via nightly build repo) and there is no problem.

I think this is Unity-specific (or even indicator-appmenu-specific). I can see the icons from classic gnome or lubuntu but not from a unity session.

confirmed, it seems a Unity/QT problem -> I guess that this issue need to be reported upstream and should not be a QGIS problem at all.

Thank you Gregorio. I was starting to think that I had some kind of curse..^_^
Yes I can also confirm that by using ubuntu 11.04 the problem appear. However by using ubuntu 11.04 with gnome classic (that is not the standard coming from a "fresh" installation) there is no problem.
I guess we can simply wait for the new release of ubuntu as unity is under heavy development.
Thank you very much to you all for your kindness and support.
Regards,
Matteo
