Where is the App Icon?

question

#1

Hi all,

I’m using Inkdrop on Ubuntu 16.04 and writing a .desktop file for adding my Quick Launcher.

I want to add the application icon to my .desktop file, but I can’t find it.
Is there an icon file in the application’s directory?

Hi Magician,

You should already have a inkdrop.desktop file after installing the app via .deb file.
If not, please make the file as following:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=inkdrop
Comment=The Note-taking App with Robust Markdown Editor
GenericName=inkdrop
Exec=inkdrop %U
Icon=inkdrop
Type=Application
StartupNotify=true
Categories=GNOME;GTK;Utility;

Thanks.

I installed Inkdrop from Zip archive, but re-installed from .deb.
So the inkdrop.desktop file is automatically installed and works good.
