Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I already knew about this but I don't want to miss all the 
system tooltips because of this :-)

Yup, thanks again, I already tried this option but I also miss the "text 
hints" which I don't want.

My goal was to get something similar to GNOME 2 launchers, that is, 
when you put the mouse over the icons you get the useful hints (text) 
but no icons.
