I'm very meticulous about how my desktop looks, and using Google Chrome as my main browser, I'm annoyed by certain inconsistencies in the icons that are in my panel.
As you can see in the screenshot above, I'm using a very nice flat icon theme (derived from material design), and the icon that Chrome provides for its applet clashes horribly. It's an eyesore for me to say the least, so I'm looking for a way to replace (or at least mask) the icon.
/opt/google/chrome, I found a bunch of image files named respectively as:
product_logo_256.png product_logo_128.png product_logo_16.png product_logo_22.png product_logo_24.png product_logo_32.png product_logo_32.xpm product_logo_48.png product_logo_64.png
which contain the stock Google Chrome icon at different resolutions.
I tried replacing these images with images of my own, from the icon pack I'm using, in an attempt to change the panel icon. However, upon closing all chrome processes and reopening the browser, the icon remained unchanged. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to change the icon so I can have a little more uniformity in my desktop environment?
