Following the lessons learned here, I tried to add an icon to SoulSeek, the file sharing network. The problem is, different from RStudio which has a png file in one of its directories, SoulSeek runs from a single file.
However, when running from a link (created with the
Make Link option in the context menu of the binary file), the running app has its default icon (a blue ghostly figure, visible in the launcher bar and when I press Alt+Tab).
On the other hand, the
soulseek.desktop file I've created in
/usr/share/applications/, though launching the app from the
Super key (it didn't before), launches it with no icon at all.
These are the contents of
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Encoding=UTF-8 Name=SoulSeek Comment=Free file sharing network Exec=/home/rodrigo/Downloads/SoulseekQt-2016-1-17-64bit Icon=/home/rodrigo/Downloads/SoulseekQt-2016-1-17-64bit Terminal=false
If I remove the
Icon key, I get the default binary icon. How to include the "blue ghost" default app icon, that seems encoded inside the binary?
