version 1.2.6:

  • Featured:

  • Fixes: 
  • New Icons:  Instagram, YaST, Crashplan, CPU info, Copyq, Colorhug, Copy, Chrome Extensions (Marqueed Screenshots, Chrome Developer Apps & Extension Tool, Weather Bug, Sunrise Calendar, Google Forms, Google Drawings, Spelunky, Cut the Rope, Habit RPG, Looper for Youtube, Adblock, Chrome Remote Desktop, Google Movies, Todoist, Entanglement, Postman, Google App Script, Nitrous.IO, MightyText, Duolinguo, Blogger ), Jolicloud, Hangouts, Wordpress, Soundcloud, Office 2013, Adobe CS, Cairo Dock, Cinnamon Settings, Mate Settings, Bless, Bitorrent, BitDefender, Billard GL, AWN applet/plugins/clock, iTunes, Atunes, Minitunes, Tunesview, Atom, Assault Cube, Armagetron Advanced, Apt on CD, PHP my Admin, And Yet it Moves, Air Port, Adobe Update, Alchemy, Amnesia the Dark Descent, 2048.

: If the icons don't show up in your menus make sure the .desktop file points to the icon, e.g: Inside Python2.7 .desktop file locate the line Icon= and replace the value with "python" or "python2.7" (without the quotes). 
So it looks like this: 
  • Icon= python - This looks for the SVG file and uses it.
  • Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/python3.3.xpm - This forces the ugly pixelated python icon.
This is true for those menu entries/applications that don't display the correct icon even though the icon is indeed available in the Nitrux theme. If it still doesn't display the icon please report it as missing, thanks!.

Firefox nightly is already in it, to what icon does the .desktop file points to?, I'll add the rest. :D
