- Code: Select all
sudo cp /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop
sudo pluma /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop
Now my google-chrome.desktop looks like this:
Comment=Google's own web browser
Everything went fine. I had my own Google Chrome entry with an icon I downloaded myself (can't stand the default square icon set) which is this one.
But then an update came out (version 26.0.1410.43) and, after having installed it via MintUpdate, the icon returned to be the square one. I edited the .desktop voice again (it had the same icon written in, but I made a useless change to put mine in another time and make it refresh) and the entry disappeared. I tried reloading Cinnamon, reloading the system, deleting google-chrome.desktop and creating it again, but still nothing.
Then I tried deleting it and creating a new launcher in the Main Menu options. Nothing appeared in the menu, even if my new launcher was visible in the Main Menu editor under the Internet submenu. After deleting it, it was automatically moved in the Other submenu, and this time present in the menu itself. What can I do?
I installed my system via the 201204 image, so I have the double DE system, but I'm using Cinnamon. For any information needed, ask me. Thank you all!
