Reporting missing icons

When reporting missing icons make sure to follow these steps so we can resolve it faster:

For Linux:

  1. Add screenshots of the missing icon and the instances where it's displayed like: menus, taskbars, panels, notifications, etc.
  2. Use the following title prefix (without the quotes): "[Linux] App_name Desktop_environment" - that way we can tag them appropriately.
  3. Add the relevant launcher information, software uses files with the extension .desktop as launchers for menus like Kickoff, Kicker, Mint menu, Gnome Shell overview, Unity dash, Whisker menu, etc. and these launchers are stored in /usr/share/applications (there might be a /kde or /kde4 folder for KDE apps) for software installed through a package or the package manager. User-installed binaries and Google Chrome apps install their launchers here: /home/$USER/.local/share/applications/. Simply open these .desktop files with any text editor; copy and paste the line that says Icon= to your issue.
  4. Add a description of the software, it's very important for us to know what the software does.

Some software uses absolute paths in their launchers, as such even when we add the icon the system will not load it, you may use Hardcoded Icon Fixer to resolve this problem.
