I'm not sure if there is any standard, but should be. Anyway, I think that 'elementary-icon-theme' should have more aliases for icon names.

Thank you for the answer! Some more clarifications. I put a CSV table here: http://pastebin.com/yT1x9znR.
1. column: menutray searches for an icon of the given name.
2. col.: matching names in the gnome-icon-theme (https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/any/gnome-icon-theme/) package.
3. col.: matching names in the elementary-icon-theme (https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/any/elementary-icon-theme/) package.
Since the icons menutray is searching for are not part of the elementary-icon-theme, these icons are not displayed correctly, if I do not have gnome-icon-theme installed, only elementary-icon-theme. On the other hand, there are equivalent icons in that theme, too.
I do not know which general icon names should be used, i.e. is this a bug in the elementary-icon-theme or not. However you may modify menutray to take these differences into account.

Thank you for your help!

Hello Menta,

Thanks for appreciation. This is true. For correct display, at least one complete icon theme needs to be installed, but there are more alternatives (like faenza-icon-theme), so I can't add an icon theme as dependency because this is up to the user which icon theme chooses to use. It just needs to be set as the default icon theme (in ~/.gtkrc-2.0), and the GTK library automatically loads the appropriate icons.

Hi trizen,

Thank you for this nice tray menu! Please correct me if I'm wrong, but for me gnome-icon-theme seems to be a dependency to correctly display some general icons.

Due to the latest update, reconfiguration is needed, (run menutray with '-r' argument).
