Package: emacs24
Version: 24.3+1-1
Severity: minor


I noted a minor problem. In my system emacs24 by default displays
both icons and text in the toolbar ; this is annoying, the toolbar
is not wide enough to contain both (in particular when using auctex);
I would like to see icons only, so I set up the correct gconf key;
but emacs has an erratic behaviour on this respect;
one possible cause of confusion is that emacs calls it 'images'
but gtk calls it 'icons'.

Currently I see this situation in gconf:

#  gconftool --long-docs /desktop/gnome/interface/toolbar_style
Toolbar Style. Valid values are "both", "both-horiz", "icons", and
# gconftool -g /desktop/gnome/interface/toolbar_style

and emacs reports
 tool-bar-style is a variable defined in `C source code'.
 Its value is nil
 Tool bar style to use.
 It can be one of
 image            - show images only
 text             - show text only
 both             - show both, text below image
 both-horiz       - show text to the right of the image
 text-image-horiz - show text to the left of the image
 any other        - use system default or image if no system default.
 This variable only affects the GTK+ toolkit version of Emacs.
 You can customize this variable.

So emacs24 should display icons only; but
when I start emacs24 I see both icons and text.

Moreover if I issue
# gconftool -s /desktop/gnome/interface/toolbar_style -t string icons
then emacs24 changes the toolbar to "icons only"; but when I
restart emacs24, it is again  "both icons and text".

The only thing that persists is when I customize the Emacs variable
and save it to ~/.emacs as
   '(tool-bar-style (quote image))
