[solved] Custom icon problem in xfce4-panel (plugin directorymenu)

Hey,
I'm using xfce4-fsguard-plugin 1.1.1-1 and xfce4-panel 4.14.0-1.2 on Arch.

Using the "directory plugin" item in xfce4-menu, I get a default 'image missing' image and xfce4-panel says

(xfce4-panel:8886): Gtk-CRITICAL **: 17:14:35.840: gtk_icon_theme_load_icon: assertion 'icon_name != NULL' failed

But the image path is valid. And the image is valid too (I tried to use one of the icons found in /usr/share/themes that works if you don't set directly their path).

There is a little screenshot to show I care (:o) : Dfd5sjET3Jdm.png

This is a known bug. Until it's properly fixed, the workaround is to put your icons in ~/.icons (create the folder if it doesn't exist) and select them from the "Uncategorized" or "All" groups from the dropdown.

Or put them in ~/.local/share/pixmaps and see if it works. I say this because that folder is a 'proper' place for isolated icons.

The spec indicates that $HOME/.icons is the proper place.
