Bug Description

On Ubuntu 11.10 Pinta 1.1 there is missing icon if using alt+tab.
On Ubuntu 11.04 Pinta 1.0 there is Pinta icon present.

Don't know if this is Ubuntu problem or Pinta's, but very annoying not to know which program is behind alt-tab icon.

Ubuntu 11.10 does not have Pinta 1.1
Are you using it from the PPA
https://launchpad.net/~pinta-maintainers/+archive/pinta-stable

or built it yourself?

On Ubuntu 11.10 I am using a PPA to get a Pinta 1.1.

I investigated this problem little bit in deep - made some additional tests. All tests done on Ubuntu 11.10.

I did the following:
1. I purged the pinta 1.1 (installed from PPA) from system:
sudo apt-get purge pinta

2. Started Ubuntu Software Center and unchecked the Pinta sources from Software Sources.

3. I updated the Ubuntu repository:
sudo apt-get update

4. I installed Pinta from official repository:
sudo apt-get install pinta

As I see Pinta 1.0-3 is installed. Using <Alt>+<Tab> key and I can see a Pinta's icon. See attachment.

5. I have purged Pinta again:
sudo apt-get purge pinta

6. Started Ubuntu Software Center and checked back Pinta PPAs from Software Sources.

7. Updated Ubuntu repository:
sudo apt-get update

8. Installed Pinta 1.1 from PPA
sudo apt-get install pinta

Pinta 1.1 is installed. Using <Alt>+<Tab> and icon is not displayed. See attachment.

So it looks there is a problem in current Pinta 1.1 package installed from PPA.

I did additional test on Ubuntu 11.10 without purging 1.0 version, so upgrading the 1.0 to 1.1.

1. Purge Pinta 1.1 installed from PPA
sudo apt-get purge pinta

2. In Ubuntu Software Center from Software Sources I have unchecked Pinta's PPA.

3. Installed Pinta 1.0 from official repository:
sudo apt-get install pinta

Pinta 1.0-3 is installed. <Alt>+<Tab> and Pinta's icon is displayed fine.

4. In Ubuntu Software Center from Software Sources I have checked Pinta's PPA and updated the repository.
sudo apt-get update

5. Upgraded Pinta to 1.1:
sudo apt-get upgrade

Pinta 1.1 is installed. <Alt>+<Tab> and Pinta's icon is not displayed correctly.

So it looks like upgrading the package also does not preserve the icon.

Can someone else confirm this missing Pinta's icon? If yes, then there is most probably some problem in package that does not update the icon.

I was finally able to reproduce this, using Ubuntu 11.04 in a virtual machine.

I updated from the default version (0.8?) to Pinta 1.1 from the stable PPA, and the alt-tab icon disappeared. However, the Pinta icon is still correctly displayed in the menu.

Default Pinta package in Ubuntu 11.04 was 0.6, see: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=pinta&searchon=names&suite=natty&section=all

I can always reproduce the problem now on Ubuntu 11.10 just uninstalling Pinta v1.1 (version from PPA) and install Pinta 1.0 from official repository (remove PPA definition from sources).

But Pinta icon is displayed in Launcher (Unity 2D is the desktop environment that I am using).

Tested in Pinta v1.4 on Ubuntu 12.04 and using CTRL+TAB displays unknown icon just like in the #1 (left image).

I also see that In Launcher there is "Mono" icon instead of Pinta. (See attachment).

I actually haven't been able to reproduce this recently, but it may be something to do with upgrading from the default repository version of Pinta to the PPA version. Going from the stable PPA to daily PPA doesn't cause this issue for me.

Cameron, if this is only PPA problem (or even PPA switching problem) then we can lower the importance of this bug to Low - it only effects advanced/geek users when testing Pinta.

Changed in pinta:
importance: Medium → Low
