Can't find GKrellM app icon


Hello All,
I have just upgraded from Fedora 19 to Fedora 20, and use Cinnamon.
I now have a blank GKrellM desktop icon.
I still have F19 on another disc, and have looked for the icon in usual places (e.g. usr/share/pixmaps), but it is nowhere to be seen on either F19 or F20.
Anyone have any ideas as to where I can find the GKrellM icons?

Cheers,
Terry

This is what I found on my Debian system:

Code:
~$ locate gkrellm | grep icon
/usr/share/app-install/icons/gkrellm.xpm
/usr/share/icons/mono/scalable/apps/gkrellm.svgz
/var/lib/fvwm-crystal/icons/Default/22x22/apps/gkrellm.png
/var/lib/fvwm-crystal/icons/Default/32x32/apps/gkrellm.png
/var/lib/fvwm-crystal/icons/Default/48x48/apps/gkrellm.png
I've always made GKrellM a start-up program or run it from the command line.

A web search might turn up sites from which you can download an icon, such as this one: http://icones.pro/en/gkrellm-png-image.html

Thanks for that info. I found the icon in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/, but it was not displayable, and neither was the one on the old disc in Fedora 19.
It would seem, from other discussion I have since seen, that the libs responsible for display of png have been changed and a bit more fussy about the format, so it isn't being displayed.
I have solved the problem by finding another icon that doesn't upset the apple-cart.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers,
Terry
