# Where can I find a scanner icon?

I just installed VueScan and I need the path to a scanner icon that I can add to my .desktop file, so that there isn't a blank square in my Launcher panel. I have been unable to find anything in /usr/share/icons

• There are "scanner" and "scan" icons in the folder Humanity and gnome both in /usr/share/icons/, also you can create your own, download one to any location and add the path to your .desktop file, etc. – Uri Herrera Sep 9 '12 at 0:35
• Try /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/devices/scanner-symbolic.svg. It's not pretty, but it should do. – ish Sep 9 '12 at 4:38

To add a scanner icon to your .desktop file you may add the following line:

Icon=scanner


This will render the default scanner icon (depending on your theme):

Shown for default 12.04 Unity/GNOME

To add a custom icon replace this line by:

Icon=/full/path/to/icon
