I'm trying to figure out why Whisker Menu displays the correct custom icon for an app while Window Buttons does not.
Note how the custom icon shows in Whisker but not in Buttons (white generic icon). Any idea why this might be happening? The .desktop is installed via a .deb (see comment at AUR).
[Desktop Entry] Name=Simplenote Comment=Simplenote for Linux Exec=/usr/share/simplenote/simplenote Icon=simplenote Type=Application StartupNotify=true Categories=Development;
The icon itself is 256x256 and stored in
. I tried swapping out the .desktop's icon for another and it updated fine in Whisker but not Buttons.
Is the size of the image the issue? How does Buttons choose the icon it uses? How can I refresh Buttons?
That app don't properly provide an icon as per the EWHM spec (that Window Buttons uses). Do a search for "xseticon" in these forums. There are a number of threads discussing how you can force an icon using a custom script and xseticon.
It was an issue with the app icon's file path (handled through Electron so likely not a EWMH issue). Now resolved. Thanks!
