TOPIC: KStars icon missing in my LXDE environment.

Re:KStars icon missing in my LXDE environment. 1 week 5 days ago #26016

I was about to write an answer :) it's a bit difficult to tell precisely, but I think installing (or reinstalling) "libkf5iconthemes-dev" restored all icons on my lubuntu installs #2 and #3 that were missing them. The lubuntu install #1 had all kstars development dependencies already installed, and had expected icons. Probably this package has too much data, but it seems to pull enough requirements, such as the breeze theme, and KDE tools to link that with kstars.

Thanks for the tip. But it did not work for me.

Well, one solution is to use Plasma desktop instead of LXDE :D

Didn't work for me also.
I have installed Ubuntu Desktop 16.04 LTE and there it works but not in 18.04.

Same here. Abelink and I tried running different flavours and versions of Ubuntu in virtual machines and whatever we try, the KStars icon doesn't appear in the bottom panel (where all running applications appear) nor in the workspace switcher. When I run Firefox, it does show the Firefox icon in those two places. See the attached screenshot. It looks like something ay have changed with Ubuntu Bionic preventing the icon from showing up or needing the icon to be added to a directory where it isn't now.

However, when I compare the output of "dpkg -L firefox | grep icon" and "dpkg -L kstars-bleeding-data | grep icon" then the only differences I see are
- Firefox uses an SVG icon and KStars SVGZ
- Firefox places the icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/symbolic and KStars in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable

Simply copying the kstars.svgz file to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/symbolic didn\'t solve the issue though...

EDIT: Sorry for hijacking this topic. Just to be clear, I am using Ubuntu Mate and the icon is missing in Bionic (18.04).

EDIT 2: The icons also are missing in Ubuntu Mate 17.10 which I have been using for some time but I never noticed this before...

Apologies I realize I offered a solution for the wrong issue. The OP has a problem with the KStars icon, while I was referring to the problem with *all* icons missing *inside* the KStars application and replaced with text, as reported by @sywong2000.

During installation, I had one such issue with the KStars icon, but it was transitory: after building and installing, the icon remained a white square in the menu and in the Taskbar. I just had to restart X11 for it to appear properly. Probably related to the icon cache, but possibly unrelated to your issue, sorry.

Forget what I wrote before. I am facing the same issue: there is a blank square in the task bar and workspace switcher where there should be a KStars icon.
