You may tell me I'm a perfectionist, but I am struggling with the following:
I have two applications that do not come from the repository for which I have problems with the application icon. I am currently using the Debian 9 with Gnome 3.22.2 with the Moka icon theme (sorry for the missing link, I may only use two of them).
So I was successful in creating the desktop file such that the icon is taken from the correct icon directories (with appropriate size) from
\usr\share\icons\Moka, but upon opening of the application a different icon is introduced in the Gnome dash and upon alt-tab. An example of the actual and the displayed icon is shown below:
My problem considering the shown icon is with both its low res, and that it is not recognized as one and the same. Same happens for the the other application, but I consider one example sufficient.
I am familiar with the similar post on this forum named: "Lowres application icon on window switching (alt-tab)" but unfortunately this does not provide a solution.
I also tried placing a high-res icon in
/usr/share/pixmaps but this does not provide a solution. Even specifying a direct link to a high res figure in the
.desktop does not change the 'alt-tab' icon.
Does anyone know how to overcome/fix this?
