Qt5 snap and the missing Appindicator icon


#1

The appindicator is using fallback icon in the Qt5 app, is there any way to solve this?

I’ve added the libappindicator package to stage-packages, but no luck. The icon works properly in KDE.

Tested on Ubuntu 16.04

The icon is probably conveyed via a path in /tmp or another location that is not visible from the main mount namespace. I believe there was a similar issue affecting other software discussed a while ago.

In short: missing snap integration in the framework.


#3

Thanks for the analysis, I’ll just wait for it to be implemented then.

CC @kenvandine - is this tracked anywhere? Should we file a bug? Is there any work with upstream Qt about this?
