I can't get the icon for Eclipse to display, although the exec link is present in the Applications menu and Plank, after checking instructions here but it won't display the icon.
I have created an "EclipseIDE.desktop" file using nano in /home/user/.local/applications/
Contents as follows:
[Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Type=Application Name=EclipseIDE Comment=Eclipse Integrated Development Environment Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/eclipse.xpm Exec=/opt/eclipse/eclipse Terminal=false Categories=Development;IDE;Java; StartupWMClass=Eclipse
I have eclipse's icon copied in both locations cp /opt/eclipse/icon.xpm /usr/share/pixmaps/eclipse.xpm but the icon won't display either in Applications menu or Plank
