I set the icon for atom in /usr/share/applications/atom.desktop using




Either way, the icon looks right in the .desktop file but when I double click it, the icon in the windows buttons item in the panel and the icon in the tab switcher is still the default one. How do I fix this?

  • What distro are you using? And did you install it manually or using the package manager. – Martín Canaval Jul 10 '16 at 20:15
  • Arch. I installed atom with yaourt. – Marcel Jul 10 '16 at 20:16
