My application's icon is not showing if I do not use an absolute path like here:
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=MyProgram GenericName=MyProgram Comment=This is a comment Icon=/opt/extras.ubuntu.com/MyProgram/Icons/myprogram.svg Exec=myprogram Categories=Utility;TextTools; Hidden=false Terminal=false Type=Application
Instead I write
just like I call the program with
Exec=myprogram, where it searches under
According to the free desktop standards I copied the icons to
/usr/share/icons/hicolor and even deleted the icon-cache as described here with
sudo gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/hicolor. Still my icon does not appear.
