gconftool-2 --type Boolean --set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons True

Hello. Was wondering if anyone knows where on my ubuntu 11.10 installation are the window icons for the default Adwaita gtk+theme when the window is maximized. I want to create a window theme that uses these so that when the windows are not maximized (and therefore have their own set of window buttons) the button icons are the same as when maximized (i.e. they match).
I have a problem. I deleted some gnome packages , and now Ubuntu won't work as it should.
Plus i installed some programs for system tweak(new look of icons etc) and delete them and only left Ubuntu Tweak . I log in system and i cross with mouse over icons in slide-bar and name of icons stays but won't go away ... and desktop picture won't show up ...
I have been fighting with checkgmail and pidgin, because after a while their tray icons disappear in unity. Also the black message boxes don't show up with pidgin (e.g. when someone writes a message to me), when the task tray icons are not visible. Weirdly enough, when I switch between workspaces, the icons are visible during the switching.
