[Solved] HexChat: missing icon in Xfce Notify Daemon popups

HexChat 2.16.0 (upgraded from 2.14.3) somehow made the icon that normally displays in Xfce's popup notification 'vanish', and instead it's replaced with the generic 'no icon found' icon.

I'm using Xfce 4.16, with xfnotifyd4 as the notification daemon.

- It does not seem to be icon-theme related, as it happens regardless of which icon theme I have selected. The icon caches seem to have been properly regenerated after the update, so I would dismiss icon corruption as an issue.
- The icons in the menus and notification area show up as expected.
- Downgrading to 2.14.3 seems to 'fix' it, in that the icon is actually displayed in the popups.

I tried seeing if anything was different between both package versions, but everything seems to be in the expected places.

I'm not sure if it's a packaging bug (in which case I'd gladly open a bug report for it), or something within HexChat itself.

Does anyone else observe this as well?

Hello! I have the exact same issue on Gnome 40. However my KDE system is fine. Did you find a solution to it?

https://github.com/hexchat/hexchat/comm … 1666066be2 indicates that the notification icon name has changed. If you link the existing packaged icon in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps to io.github.Hexchat.png in the same folder, and rebuild the icon cache "gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/hicolor" it should show up.

I see so this is an arch bug then or a hexchat bug?

I'm not 100% sure, but since hexchat's icons directory doesn't contain it and meson.build file doesn't reference it, my guess would be a hexchat bug.

Odd that they would change the notification icon name but not provide a fallback icon.

Re: [Solved] HexChat: missing icon in Xfce Notify Daemon popups

The update to 2.16.1 from Feb 12th did indeed fix this - so I'm marking it as solved.

P.S. I had completely forgotten about having posted this topic at all - it was only when I looked at "Posted" that I realized I started this topic.
