I've been using Chromium for some time now, but I decided to switch over to Chrome. More features. Anyways, I found that when I launch Chrome, its icon doesn't appear in the Launcher.

Do any of you have this problem, or is it just me?

I'm running x86_64 version of Natty and Chrome 14.0.797.0 dev build.

Is there a placeholder for the icon or a generic icon instead of the Chrome icon? Or is there no indication at all in the launcher that Chrome is running? –  michaelms Jun 27 '11 at 16:27

I have a similar problem, but the Chrome icon is a blank space. When you click on it Chrome opens. Running X86-32bit –  user21252 Jul 7 '11 at 13:18
    
Does it happen after a restart as well? It once happened to me but has never happened again after i restarted –  Chriskin Jul 7 '11 at 13:42
    
+1 - this is a common thing that I've yet to figure out what's going on. I haven't been able to describe it in a bug report easily either. –  jrg Aug 10 '11 at 13:51

I fixed the problem a long time ago. Sorry for not posting the solution.

Anyways, just add the icon to the launcher, then log off and log back in. It should work after that.

That's the only workaround I have.

If you can accept this as the answer that'd be great. :) –  jrg Sep 10 '11 at 0:59
