I have a strange problem. I installed Postman following the instructions from the Internet. Now it can be opened, works fine etc. but icon is not displayed. occupies a place, shows that it is open and it writes a name when it crosses over it but irritates me because it can not be seen. What is the problem and how can I fix it? I tried to reinstall it and same happened...

enter image description here


You might want to edit the desktop entry file at /usr/share/applications/postman.desktop

Example postman.desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]

Reference gist

Also, I learned that they had updated the icon path in the latest releases. So, you can just go ahead and change the path of icon at .desktop file.

    In Ubuntu 20.04, I had the same problem. I solved by changing the icon path to Icon=/opt/Postman/app/resources/app/assets/icon.png – dc_Bita98 May 11 '20 at 18:09

  • @JayModi, Couldn't solve the problem! :'( This sucks. – joker Dec 7 '20 at 15:05

It depends on how you installed postman. I used snap, the icon (icon.png) can be found in /snap/postman//usr/share/Postman/resources/app/assets.

The folks at postman have refactored their resource tree.
