I use a custom compiled version of Wine and Minitube (no actual source changed, just compiled instead of installed from software centre), however for some reason their icons show up as grey question marks instead of the standard icon files. I'm pretty sure it's not an installation issue. I've attached my minitube installation log, if that's of any help:

gem@HAL9000:~/Downloads/minitube$ sudo make install
install -m 755 -p "build/target/minitube" "/usr/bin/minitube"
strip "/usr/bin/minitube"
cp -f -r /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/build/target/locale /usr/share/minitube/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/minitube.desktop /usr/share/applications/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/data/minitube.svg /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/data/16x16/minitube.png /usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/data/22x22/minitube.png /usr/share/icons/hicolor/22x22/apps/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/data/32x32/minitube.png /usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/data/48x48/minitube.png /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/data/64x64/minitube.png /usr/share/icons/hicolor/64x64/apps/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/data/128x128/minitube.png /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/data/256x256/minitube.png /usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/
install -m 644 -p /home/gem/Downloads/minitube/data/512x512/minitube.png /usr/share/icons/hicolor/512x512/apps/

So, any idea what's going on and how can I fix it? Ubuntu 13.04, fresh install.

  • Add the contents of /usr/share/minitube.desktop to your question please. – edwin Jul 14 '13 at 0:29
  • Oops! I meant /usr/share/applications/minitube.desktop. Sorry. – edwin Jul 14 '13 at 0:35
  • @edwin Done, added! – Karoliina Jul 14 '13 at 0:39
  • Try setting the full icon path. Also make sure that /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/minitube.svg does exist and that you've rebooted. – edwin Jul 14 '13 at 0:41
  • @edwin omg I love you! – Karoliina Jul 14 '13 at 0:49

gem@HAL9000:/usr/share/applications$ sudo vim minitube.desktop

And setting the line:

Icon=minitube

To:

Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/minitube.svg

Did the job perfectly!

Thanks @edwin !
