The launcher icon for anytype is missing on linux. (RPM installation)
- Install the latest anytype RPM package.
- Open the application launcher
The actual anytype icon shows up.
Fedora linux 37 workstation
x64 desktop pc
I wasn’t able to find an existing bug report for this. All I was able to find was this same problem but for the appimage version. And since the icon handling there is quite different I have created this bug report.
I have also been able to locate the core of the issue, and fix it on my system.
The anytype rpm installs the icon into
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/0x0/apps/anytype2.png, this location is apparently not used by fedora or gnome (not sure).
So I was able to fix it by copying the
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/anytype2.png, and then running
sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ to refresh the cache. After this the icon properly shows up.
So a possible solution here is to install the icon into both locations.
