But I want to add that sometimes the impression that icons do not appear stem from kdenlive's compact and expanded modes of showing tracks. In the compact mode it does not show icons.

There are two options: The /opt directory is not in $PATH, which makes the .desktop file invalid, unless you added the directory manually. Usually applications in /opt have an absolute path in their Exec= line. Change it to the absolute path to the executable. There might be another .desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications, taking the place of your ...
