    Default 11.3 GNOME missing icons

    Hi,

    I'm currently testing out 11.3 64bit GNOME and the icons of some of the
    programs I have installed don't display in the application browser.
    Some of the applications that I know are suffering from this problem are
    'World Of Goo' and 'Opera'.

    Has anyone else had this problem or know what's wrong?

    Thanks a lot.


    Regards,
    Barry.

    Default Re: 11.3 GNOME missing icons

    So I am using KDE and openSUSE 11.3 for applications that I have installed after the base openSUSE installation. I have had several programs that I installed in KDE which also did not show up in the KDE menu. Yet, I did notice that after a few restarts of KDE, these applications showed up later. It was kind of strange and there is no way for me to know if these two issues are related except I might do a few restarts of Gnome to see if that makes any difference for you.

    Thank You,

    Hi,

    I have already restarted several times since installing these programs,
    it makes no difference.

    Any other ideas?

    Hi
    Have a look in YaST Software Management at the file list and see where
    the icons and desktop files reside. AFAIK, things have changed
    and /usr/share/pixmaps isn't the place for icons anymore, they need to
    be in hicolor.

    Do they show up in your More Programs window? If not, can you run them through the command line (just to verify they are there)?

    Go into the Menu Editor and make sure there aren't entries there which are for whatever reason not selected, or can add a launcher for the application.

    I know you said you have, but I have found that rebooting usually brings these new programs to the menu.

    I loaded GNOME on my new sony vaio F series(just for the 11.3 release) and did not have that problem. It was fast and everything that I tried work great right from the get Go, wireless,blue tooth,webcam,etc.
    The only hang up it had was with fire fox, It would hard freeze the system. Could not do anything with it, But turn it off.

    This is with the 64 bit offering.

    I just checked in software manager and it lists the icons locations as:
    '/usr/share/icons/hicolor/<size>/apps' where <size> in
    {128x128,16x16,22x22,32x32,48x48,scalable}.

    I also checked these locations and the icons are there.
    So any idea why I have a red cross instead of the correct icon?

    Hi,

    I'm afraid you've misunderstood the problem: probably I didn't explain
    it well enough.

    The links to the programs are appearing in the slab menu and the
    Application Browser (More Applications...); however the icons aren't
    displaying, instead I have a red cross in a grey box where the icons,
    for these applications, should be.


    Regards,
    Barry.

    Hi Barry
    Create a softlink to one of the 48x48 icon in /usr/share/pixmaps and see
    what happens.
