Application icon on Unity

  • Hi,

    I switched to Ubuntu 11.10 with Unity. Before I used the Gnome.

    The icon of my application does not appear neither on the dock bar nor in the task switcher. On Windows it appears, and with Gnome it appeared as well. The icon is not there in the file system, I added it to a resource file.

    Does somebody know, how I can get Unity to show the icon?


  • I can't speak for ubuntu but it depends on your OS and compilers process for including the icon. On windows for example with Microsoft compilers you include a .rc file with an icon entry. While I dont have a direct answer for you if you can determine how it is done using you compiler you will be one step closer.
