We need to know what you've put in the .desktop file. Try editing the Terminal= line to be false: Terminal=false I put all my icons in /usr/share/icons and I save them as a .png or a .svg. SVG is better (scalable), but can be a larger file size. Remember, this icon will be used for Alt+Tab switcher as well as the launcher and Dash search. ...

First, the icon Just made you one. CC SA 3.0. Adapted from aleixoteixeira's design. Get the SVG here - ubuntu will scale it and it will never be blury because it's an SVG file. What to do with it now? I save all my icons in either /usr/share/icons/ or /usr/share/icons/current_pack. It makes no difference, and I don't know what is better practise. png ...

These guys are over-thinking this a little too hard. The solution is simple, redirect your .svg Icon=/usr/share/icons/Minecraft_Block.svg to a .ico file (Icon File) so it would look something like this: Icon=/usr/share/icons/Minecraft_Block.ico A quick way is to go here and use the url: http://i.stack.imgur.com/QGCXb.png a simply click the big ...

You need to add the Path=/home/YOURUSERNAME/Desktop to it, that's what made it work for me.

This happens (not only) with Wine applications. I assume your application does not have a duplicated launcher, since you cannot pin it to the Unity Launcher (or Docky in your case). The second icon will most likely be a generic one, or a "general" Wine icon. The second icon appears because the launcher and the application window do not "meet" each other. ...
