XFCE doesn't display Wine Icons


I think that is a bug. This is the second computer with OpenSUSE 13.1 that I’m installing Wine.

The problem is that in menu, the Wine icons do not appear. Even if I try to change from “Main Menu” application.

I copied the directory /usr/share/icons/hicolor to my ~/.local/share restart and then the icons appeared.

The other problem is, even if I remove Wine, the menu still there, and I can’t remove from “Main Menu”. I saw a post talking about it in version 12.

This is a bug? Or I’m messed the system?


Ok, I tried this.

I open wine-winecfg.desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Configure Wine
GenericName=Configure Wine
Name[sv]=Konfigurera Wine
Name[de]=Konfiguriere Wine
Name[fi]=Winen asetukset
Name[pl]=Konfiguracja Wine
Name[ca]=Configureu el Wine
Comment=Change application-specific and general Wine options
Comment[sv]=Ändra programspecifika och allmänna Wine-alternativ

Comment[pl]=Konfigurowanie ustawień aplikacji i ogólnych opcji Wine
Comment[ca]=Canvieu la configuració general del Wine i especifiqueu opcions per a programes concrets

If, I change the **Icon **entry to the absolute patch of the icon… /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/wine-winecfg.svg the icon appear on menu.


This name “wine-winecfg” is a implementation of freedesktop.org right? How can I update the system, to find or recognize this new wine icons alias?

The command gtk-update-icon-cache, 2 and 3 doesn’t fix it.

Please, someone?

I discover a important thing, I installed here a new program, galculator. And then, with my modifications of wine menu entries, after the installation of this program, the menu update it self.

I tested in another computer without this modifications, and it work!

Please, what is the command to update the menus? gcalculator execute this command, xcalc and wine no.

So the menu entries appear, but only the icons are missing?

galculator executes this on installation, this should make the icons appear:

/usr/bin/gtk-update-icon-cache --force "/usr/share/icons/hicolor"

For the menu entries itself, this should do:

/usr/bin/update-desktop-database "/usr/share/applications"

Then galculator also calls this, but that’s only for associating default applications to file types I think:


But note that I don’t use XFCE myself, so cannot help you further.

Thanks wolfi!!!

The first command work, but I have to logoff and back. I didn’t test the others.

Maybe, the second command fix it without logoff/login.

Really thanks.

But, is there a way to put it on package installation?*** This is not important, but is annoyng. I think that it will help other users that use XFCE insted KDE.
