Getting the Atom Numix icon on Atom Git

I recently installed atom-editor-git to resolve some issues I was having with¬†atom-editor. These included flashing panes (most notably the minimap plugin) and text artifacts. But sadly… my Numix icon disappeared. In order to solve this, you must edit the /usr/share/applications/atom-git.desktop.

 

In the /usr/share/applications/atom-git.desktop file change the Icon field from atom-git to atom and add the StartupWMClass=atom field.

 

Your file should end up looking like this

...
Icon=atom
Type=Application
StartupNotify=true
StartupWMClass=atom
...

And now you should have the Numix Atom icon back!
