Reporting missing icons

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

For Linux:

  1. Add screenshots, images speak louder than words. Add a screenshot of the missing icon and the instances where it's displayed ` (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 in Linux DE uses files with the extension .desktop as launchers in menus (like Homerun, Mint menu, Gnome Shell overview, Unity, etc.), these launchers are stored in /usr/share/applications (there might be a /kde folder for KDE apps) for software installed through a package or the package manager. Applications such as Google Chrome apps install their launchers here: /home/$USER/.local/share/applications/. Simply open these files with a text editor and copy their contents into your issue.
  4. Add a description of the software, it's very important for us to know what the software does as we are not able to install every software under the sun and test them.

Some software uses hardcoded 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.
