VLC, Skype, , Clementine and Virtualbox (the four QT apps I use) all have icons in their menus. The rest of my system's menus are all iconless -- how I like them. Using 12.04. How would I fix this?

I have the same issue since (no exaggerating) years ago. I've several times tried to google the problem, and even posted in forums, but never got any results.Everything started with Skype: I realized that, when running skype in Xfce, the program menus had no icons, whereas in other desktops (same or different OS) the icons were there.
When I start Thunderbird or the IDE 'Eclipse', there are no icons in the menu entries. Several solutions found on the Internet suggest things like setting a specific dconf-value, but with my installation (Arch) this is not possible:
% gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface menus-have-icons true
No such key 'menus-have-icons'
So what is the current way for enabling these icons?
I've got LibreOffice 3.6.1 and cannot find the menus. It seems there are only toolbars with icons and no menus. Is this a problem with LXDE or is LibreOffice like that now? Pressing Alt+F or even just plain Alt does nothing.
With most programs, context (right-click) menus and other menus have a shadow under them to indicate that they're separate from the rest of the program. This makes them easy to read. In LibreOffice, however, menus don't have shadows, and the top menu (file/edit/view, etc) is still in the program window itself, instead of in the global menu. How can I fix these problems?
