From the github README:
"If you want to have dartkable displayed along your other applications, you only need to add a symbolic link:
ln -s /opt/darktable/share/applications/darktable.desktop /usr/share/applications/darktable.desktop"
I did this. It works - sort of. The icon displayed is the system’s default icon, not the darktable icon.
Is there some other step necessary to enable gnome to find the icons?
