I had a similar problem. I tried ScottC's answer mentioned here. I created the .desktop file on my desktop location, added the exec path as <eclipse installation directory>/eclipse and icon path as <eclipse installation directory>/icon.xpm and then pinned it to the launcher. This worked for me.

For some reason astrill isn't being registered with unity when it is installed. You can fix this by copying it to /usr/share/applications/ and create a panel icon by dragging the icon to the panel. Astrill should have created a launcher on the desktop when it installed. If not create the file Astrill.desktop with the following content: [Desktop Entry] ...

Timing issue I am pretty sure it is because of the timing. The command most likely runs before its target is "in the field". Changing the command into: /bin/bash -c "sleep 15 && dropbox stop && env DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" dropbox start -i" ...will probably do the job.

I think I found the answer. desktop-file-install probably automatically added a default icon Icon[en_US]=gnome-panel-launcher before I added Icon below it. I totally did not see that line. Most likely the locale specific Icon takes precedence over Icon

That is dropbox doing it's recent failing thing. Run this: dropbox stop && dbus-launch dropbox start I had the same problem. It's more of a workaround, but it works.

I don't have KDE installed right now to test. As I remember with Kubuntu 15.04, KDE was creating two files to override GTK theme settings. GTK2: ~/.gtkrc-2.0 GTK3: ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini As they are two separate file you can change them differently. But you may need to change them to read-only so KDE config tool will not able to change them. ...

About Alacarte When you edit the icon of a .desktop file with Alacarte, Alacarte copies the global .desktop file to ~/.local/share/applications, and edits that one. Since on the next login the local one will overrule the global one, to fix your issue, you need to manually edit the local one. Alacarte's bug with icon extensions Alacarte does not handle ...

FWIW, a similar thing happened to me. I have Lubuntu 15.10 and the multiple panel icon thing happened to me with AutoKey. IIRC, the way I got rid of it was to do a Ctrl+Alt+T to bring up the Terminal. Then I typed lxpanelctl restart to restart the panel. After this one time, it never happened again.
