    Icons in "Open With" file menu

    This easily is a really minor issue,however,if it can be fixed,why not do it:I have some icons missing in the "Open With" right-click file menu,the one that can also be accessed via the Properties tab,in its place there is either a blank space or the generic blue diamond icon,the weird thing is that the very same programs in another Ubuntu Lucid installation (same version) do have those tiny icons,so I was wondering if it's probably something minor hidden in a configuration file.
    I had a look in ~/.local/share/applications and for instance one of those applications has a .desktop file with these lines
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Exec='/usr/sbin/xnview' %f
    Name=xnview
    Comment=Custom definition for xnview
    NoDisplay=true
    is ,by any chance, this the file to edit to show that little missing icon?

    Or am I completely off track,and this can be done (*if* it can be done) by means of some setting in gconf-editor ?

    Just in case someone may wonder what I'm ranting about,I mean this tiny icon:in another Lucid installation I have the XnView icon instead of that generic one.
