[Solved] Panel icons for specific folder & files missing after upgrade

Post by zedki » Sun Jul 16, 2017 6:57 pm

Apparently, LM18.2 mate is all new and so does not do as it use to do...
I had to delete all of my "linktoxxxx" links and add a separate new launcher for each of my six missing old launchers.
Easy peasy. Too bad there was nothing online to explain this :)



Still a noobie after 3 years...
I upgraded from LM18.1 Mate to LM18.2 Mate today.
I used the option in UpdateManager on the edit tab.
Everything is just spiffy, except;
Panel icons for specific folders & files missing after upgrade.
App icons stayed put.
The icons were for links to these folder and files. ie; LibraOffice files - name.xls
When I try to add them back to the panel,
they do not stay there, but they do show up in
/home/zedki/.config/mate/panel2.d/default/launchers
even the ones that disappeared are there...

Am I missing something? Your assistance is appreciated.
