I found a couple problems with the .desktop file and they were an oversight of mine. I fixed the problems and tested it on a vm with KDE and it worked fine.

Since it's a minor fix some aur helpers may choose to forego a clean rebuild, so be sure to rebuild cleanly or nothing will change.

Thank you. Unfortunately it didn't work for me. Did all the steps you mentioned, but it still turns into the brave icon :(

Sure. (caveat emptor, etc.)

1: Edit /usr/sbin/dissenter-browser so that the FLAG variable also has the aforementioned --class=dissenter-browser argument. Here's what mine looks like:

FLAG="--class=dissenter-browser --no-sandbox"

2: Edit the /usr/share/applications/dissenter-browser-bin.desktop file so that it sets the StartupWMClass variables when launching. tbh, I'm not sure if this is necessary if you do the FLAG thing, but it's what I wrote down in my notes so I'm assuming it is.

Anyway, where I stick the variables is right after the Exec parameter. So instead of Exec=whatever, mine looks like this:

There were three sections with Exec, each different I think, but the two startup vars are the same so just copy/pasting after the Exec line should suffice.

Edit: This assumes you've copied the product logo to the /usr/share/pixmaps directory

Hey, you're right, I had normal Brave Browser running, so it appeared to me as if the icon just disappears, but instead it turns into Brave like you said.

Could you explain steps 1 & 2? Not sure what to do exactly ^^'

jahendrie commented on 2019-06-12 13:14

Just a heads up, normally the icon changes to Brave's icon after it's loaded for me. I can get it working 'properly' on KDE following these steps:

1) launch with --class=dissenter-browser argument
2) used both StartupWM_CLASS and StartupWMClass (both set to dissenter-browser) in the .desktop file, not sure which is necessary
3) copied /opt/gab/dissenter/product_logo_128.png to /usr/share/pixmaps/dissenter-browser.png

As mentioned, it works on KDE and a few other DEs (I think openbox, maybe XFCE), but it doesn't work on Gnome or Cinnamon for me. Not sure why.

Hope it helps:

Sure, just be sure to run the command immediately when it happens to avoid capturing unrelated events

Midir commented on 2019-06-09 20:39

Thank you. The command results in a lot of lines. Should I create a pastebin?

loonixman commented on 2019-06-09 15:06

I tested on my fresh KDE VM and it runs fine. Is anything going on when you put journalctl -xe on your terminal?

Thanks @Vinnie_PT

Browser starting normal for me, but as soon as it's loaded, the icon on the taskbar disappears (KDE Plasma 5.15.5) any ideas?
