I don't know if this is the best place (I couldn't see a developer

I use LibreOffice on openSUSE Linux. I've got a custom icon set that
replaces the application icons for LibreOffice. This works fine for
launcher icons, but once the program is running (e.g. I'm editing a file
in LO Writer) then the "current app" icon and the Alt-Tab app switcher
use the original icons (upscaled horribly from about 24x24 to 64x64).

As best as I can tell, Gnome is honouring the _NET_WM_ICON property of
the window, which does show the old style icons when you query it with

I'm not talking about the toolbar icons, which I know there are multiple
themes that I can select from, but the actual launcher icon, and the one
that Gnome Shell uses to show you which app is running.

Is it possible to either a) get LibreOffice to use my theme's icons for
_NET_WM_ICON or b) replace some files pre-build, and if so, which ones?

I've got an account that already has some repackaged software on the
openSUSE Build Service (OBS), so I'm not afraid of patching packages, if
that is the only option :)


Maybe the solution is to include other icon sizes, like 24x24 and 64x64, or maybe larger ones, for those systems that might need or use them. Small, medium, large, and extra-large, icons might work for those who are on systems where you can change the icon size. I think Win7 has only two icon sizes to choose from. I do not remember seeing that option in my Ubuntu/MATE install, though. It could be there and I never seen where the option resides.

So, maybe there might be a need for icon sizes other than the two being used already.

Debian install[s] show

Could there be an "icon24x24" and "icon64x64" added to the desktop-integration system?
How many systems would work with more than just the "default" two sizes?
