I used the tarballs from your link above.
I confirm the missing icons in menus on Lucid, it's a system setting matter, use gconf-editor to activate them
(see this thread : http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=392759
Also I don't have problems with "reset initial window config", it works as it should here.
A little --OFF TOPIC-- but I can report here my dual-screen/wacom config troubles I've just had on Lucid, if someone is interested in doing the same:
First if you have monitors with different resolutions/ratio (I'm not sure if this happens with two same monitors) it's a pain to find the good values to assign to Top/BottomXY in xsetwacom config
to get a correct ratio between the tablet and each screen … Good luck with it if you try ! (I've succed in the end but with a lot of calculs and values adjustments)
Then with Xinerama mode I have a bad offset bug between my cursor and where it actually draws with synfig, mypaint and gimp (but strangely not with tvpaint beta where it is ok …) although clicking on something is "aligned", this offset happens only when drawing.
Then hopefully switching to Twinview mode (Nvidia cards) it works, no more offset !
