I am working on a package for a custom application and cannot get my applications icons to display. Here is my desktop file, which is installed in
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=Map Creator Icon=ntfmo-map-creator TryExec=/opt/ntfmo/map_creator/bin/map_creator Exec=/opt/ntfmo/map_creator/bin/map_creator.sh Categories=Office; X-Desktop-File-Install-Version=0.16
I have copied images to the following locations:
I have rebooted, but still nothing. Do you have to register the icons or something?
[EDIT] Ok, I got it to work by running
sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/*/icon-theme.cache, but that seems a little draconian. Is that the "correct" solution? Does my package need to run that after it installs? Seems a little much….
