I have installed the new Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and do not see where I can change the toolbar icon settings (for all Gnome/GTK apps) such that I only display icons, not text labels beside the icons. Does anyone know how to fix this?

In Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, there was a setting for this, but Ubuntu 10.04 LTS doesn't seem to have it.
