Logo configuration for the .desktop file of the Lapce editor (lapce.dev)

Lapce.desktop

The base .desktop for Lapce file can be found here

For logos to work, download either the light app logo or the dark app logo and save it in the icons directory inside one of the directories contained in the $XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable.

For example, /usr/local/share/ is part of $XDG_DATA_DIRS on my machine, so I saved the light version of the logo as /usr/local/share/icons/lapce_icon_light.svg.

Important

If you don't save the icon as lapce_icon_light.svg, you need to change the file names in both Icon= entries below.

# ~/.local/share/applications/Lapce.desktop
