Ubuntu Desktop Icons
liaemars commented on 17 June 2018 at 2:27 pm UTC

Hi all

I am more than a bit confused....

my main setup is a fairly bland Ubuntu 17.10 setup with Gnome desktop, however I am running into a very annoying issue:

my custom icons are all messed - ie if I ask Steam to put a desktop icon into the desktop folder then it shows a generic cogs (I am using the pop icon theme, but it does not matter which theme I use it always happens).

when I change the desktop to Cinnamon all the icons appear fine with the right PNG.

Any ideas what to do ?

Its a little better on Ubuntu 18.04. Most icons will be correct, however, there are the odd balls where I have needed to search for the icon within the steam folder(s) and manually apply it.

I personally would upgrade to 18.04, but I don't know if that's an option for you. How about you opt into the steam beta and give that a shot?
