Transparant icon for bleachbit on fresh debian computer


My application screen has all full-color icons, but bleachbit is something like 90% transparant (both icons: bleachbit and bleachbit as root). It works properly and I have reinstalled and autoremove+install but that does not fix it nor does rebooting. Does anyone know whats up?

look at .desktop (Debian has a .desktop file? I imagine you'll tell me if it doesn't...) in your home directory and see if it references the transparency issue of which you speak.

There is no .desktop (hidden folder) in my home directory. Not sure if you get what's the problem either. Check out the picture to see what I mean.

I'm not sure it's a problem, actually, the shiny works when you give it the clickety-click, isn't that what a shiny is supposed to do?

I'd try to help you further but as a Slackware user, I don't have any icons on my desktop. I keep a couple of terminals open and just use that voodoo you have as a desktop background so, I'm guessing here and at this point my best advice would be, read the documentation on how to set transparencies of your desktop icons.

Indeed if aesthetics are of no concern this is not a real problem. However I would like to see all my icons the same way. Voodooing stuff from the terminal is mighty amusing but I like the shiny too. I tried configuration editor nothing out of the ordinary there. Could be a bug?!

You really got to think about what's wrong here, Rocky. It's not a functionality issue. The icon is not a product of the underlying program, you could actually go into the properties of the icon and make it point to Microsoft Technet and spawn a browser, it's not like the icon knows the difference.
You know, a thought here would be create a new icon and have it point to the same location in your system (which is all an icon really does). If pointing it at the target makes it go transparent... then yeah, I'd say it might be a bug. More likely though, it's a just a desktop setting going wonky.

Hadn't thought about it like that, will try to replace the icon in the icon-folder. Thanks for input!
