google-chrome-unstable icon is missing (Linux RPM installer)

Reported by, Jul 21 2014 Back to list

Issue description

Chrome Version       : 37.0.2062.3 (Official Build 279868) dev
OS Version: Fedora 20 (x86_64)
URLs (if applicable) :

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Install `google-chrome-unstable` package

What is the expected result?
Chrome should have a lovely icon 

What happens instead of that?
The google chrome application (google-chrome-unstable) uses the default application icon (a boring purple diamond)

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if

$ locate google-chrome-unstable.desktop

$ grep -i icon /usr/share/applications/google-chrome-unstable.desktop

$ pkcon what-provides --filter=installed
Installed       google-chrome-unstable-37.0.2062.3-1.x86_64
(installed:google-chrome)    Google Chrome (unstable)

Peeking in the latest google-chrome-unstable rpm in /var/cache/yum, I
notice the following:

#   Post install script
# Add icons to the system icons
XDG_ICON_RESOURCE="`which xdg-icon-resource 2> /dev/null || true`"
if [ ! -x "$XDG_ICON_RESOURCE" ]; then
  echo "Error: Could not find xdg-icon-resource" >&2
  exit 1
for icon in "/opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_"*.png; do
  "$XDG_ICON_RESOURCE" install --size "${size%.png}" "$icon" "google-chrome"

If I run this (but with XDG_ICON_RESOURCE=echo), I see:

$ for icon in "/opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_"*.png; do
>   size="${icon##*/product_logo_}"
>   "$XDG_ICON_RESOURCE" install --size "${size%.png}" "$icon" "google-chrome"
> done
install --size 128 /opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_128.png
install --size 16 /opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_16.png google-chrome
install --size 22 /opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_22.png google-chrome
install --size 24 /opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_24.png google-chrome
install --size 256 /opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_256.png
install --size 32 /opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_32.png google-chrome
install --size 48 /opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_48.png google-chrome
install --size 64 /opt/google/chrome-unstable/product_logo_64.png google-chrome

So I think it's just installing under the wrong name, because I have:


but not


Or at least I figure that's what the problem is.

Summary: google-chrome-unstable icon is missing (Linux RPM installer) (was: google-chrome-unstable icon is missing)
On my system (Ubuntu), /usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/google-chrome-unstable.png is valid. So I suspect this is a problem of the .rpm getting out of date (whereas the .deb was updated).

PaweĊ‚, you recently renamed these, didn't you? Maybe you can update the .rpm.

Same problem here on 3.16.6-200.fc20.x86_64, manually fixing the /usr/share/applications/google-chrome-unstable.desktop file to reference 'Icon=google-chrome' makes it work.

Same problem here on 3.17.7-200.fc20.x86_64 with google-chrome-beta-40.0.2214.45-1.x86_64
Still an issue with google-chrome-beta-41.0.2272.43-1.x86_64
The same issue with Fedora 21 and Google Chrome 43 Dev.

 Issue 397315  has been merged into this issue.
Same problem here.
So are we going to make progress on or should thomasanderson@ take a shot at this?  Bug 354571  is probably somewhat related.
