Hi, can anyone guide me on how to solve this broken google chrome icon please?


In the terminal navigate to /usr/share/applications

sudo scratch-text-editor google-chrome.desktop

scroll about halfway down to just above the [Desktop Action NewWindow] section

look for the Icon entry, it should look like this...


If not, change it to that.

    This is a good answer. Just want to add a bit here. After following the steps in the answer, the icon on the launcher may not update automatically. So, just remove the icon from the launcher first and then re-store icon on dock after following the steps in this answer. – ThisIsNotAnId Jan 27 '17 at 23:14
