As the question says, the Chrome icon is fuzzy in docky. I tried this: How get a higher resolution icon for Google Chrome in Docky?

But that didn't seem to help. I would have commented my issue there, but I need rep. points for that. enter image description here

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I ran into this problem myself. I fixed it by editing the google-chrome.desktop file found in /usr/share/applications

sudo vi /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop

You'll find a line

Exec=/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable %U

I changed mine to

Exec=google-chrome %U

After restarting Google Chrome the icon was all shiny and nice :)

Hope this helps.

  • Totally worked! @BarryG Thanks! :D Had to use gedit under sudo from terminal to edit it, cuz double clicking it opens it as some window. Also, can't upvote it. Damn rep. system. -_- Jul 30, 2014 at 18:23
  • Sorry, should have mentioned using sudo. Happy to help!
