Now I’ve just installed Fedora 31 and was playing around with it for a bit. I noticed that the icon of Libreoffice was still a problem. Deinstalled and reinstalled but the problem persisted. Then I switched to Gnome on Xorg, just to see if it would be the same and to my surprise the icons were normal there! I logged back to Wayland where nothing has changed and back to Xorg just to be sure, and yes, the right icon appeared.
Does anyone have a similar problem, know why this is and have suggestions for how to fix this? I use Writer a lot and it would be nice if the broken icon would be fixed.
Actually I think that isn’t the writer icon. I just checked with the regular icon pack you also use. When you’d add the Writer application icon to your dock as permanent, I think you’d see that it would show this generic icon for libreoffice as the icon for the writer application, with it in fact being a different icon. Do you understand what I mean?
Iit always shows the generic Libreoffice icon irrespective of the specific Libreoffice app one uses. The idea is that they’re all just different Libreoffice windows, since you can open a new spreadsheet using the “new” in Writer and vice versa also. I think this is just how they’re meant to be now. One can right click on the icon to choose what window they want to switch to and so on:
I wanted to demonstrate this with 4 screenshots but new users can only post one image. With Wayland, the different applications get grouped under the generic Libreoffice icon, whereas with Xorg Writer and Calc are different programs with their own icon. This is best noticed under Wayland by having Writer marked as favourite in the Dock, having it always there. I’ve now added a picture taken in Xorg, to see how the different applications have different icons.
