When I create program.desktop files in /usr/share/applications for programs that don't have one, I get garbage/corrupted icons displayed on the desktop. This also occurs if I relocate programs that are installed in odd places. The program.png files are in /usr/share/pixmaps and everything, and if I open the icons in GIMP they look fine. The programs run fine from the desktop files I've created, and if I use icons that are already in use by other apps, they display fine. Am I missing something obvious here?

This is on a C860 running pdaXrom 1.0.5 with matchbox/openbox

Thanks

What is the size of your icons?

Most icons in pdaxrom are 48x48, 64x64 is ok also.

I think you might run into problems if you use icons that are not squares.

One of the icons in question is an odd size, (the dopewars_weed.png icon that comes in the package is 47x48,) but the others are square. I have .xinitrc set to load matchbox with --iconsize 48, which I thought might be the problem, but I have 36x36 and 64x64 icons that display fine like this. Even if I set --iconsize 56 or another wacky size, they all display fine except for the ones I'm already having problems with.

I have had fine luck with any / all the icons from my /usr/share/pixmaps dir on my desktop install. Most are Gnome icons from my 2.8 install and all work fine. They also work great for rox. My guess would be a problem with the .png files you are using. Good luck!.
