I try to uninstall pidgin-2.5.6 in my VL5.9 Light (using LXDE), VL6 Light (using icewm) and VL6 STD (using xfce4) and the icon is removed from the start menu. When I reinstall it again the pidgin icon is appear in the start menu. I do notice the pidgin.desktop icon part is a bit weird. Did anyone encounter this problem?

Looking at the package, pidgin.png (the icon file called by the menu) is located in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps. As standard, Vector uses /usr/share/pixmaps for icons.

Can you rebuild the package, either copying the icon to /usr/share/pixmaps (best option) during the build, or modifying the pidgin.desktop file to point to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/pidgin.png?

I understand but the package that i build work fine for my VL5.9 Light, VL6 Light and VL6 STD. There is an icon on the start menu. Did anyone else have this problem? The same SlackBuild work for my pervious version of pidgin too.

I have just uploaded pidgin-2.5.7 to VL repo. It will take 1 or 2 day before moving to VL testing repo.
