GNOME Mines desktop file icon too small

Bug #1772191 reported by AsciiWolf on 2018-05-19

Bug Description

The icon of GNOME Mines in GNOME Shell Overview in Ubuntu 18.04 is blurred. This is because the icon resolution is too low. See the attached screenshot.

Test Case
Check if /usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/gnome-mines.png exists.

Check if the app icon in the GNOME Shell Activities Overview looks less blurry than in the screenshot.

Regression Potential
This is a simple missing icon size from the meson build script. The patch is backported from gnome-mines 3.30.1. The icon was in our 3.26 builds but the regression was introduced when the project switched to meson.
