Unnecessary - the system would have provided a blank one for you ;-p

That's only one place you'd expect to find an icon for xv on KDE.
If you want to use that particular icon either:-
; select it using the "icon browser"[*1]
; choose the "mono" theme, and it will then be used instead of the blank
icon

Alternative:-
Then click on "edit file type" (the spanner icon).
Then click on the actual icon in the "General" tab of the "Edit file
type" dialog.
That then opens the "icon browser"[*1]

This "process" can "find" "it" anywhere.
Installation normally sets the path to the icon for the application,
otherwise it's done manually (as you're doing).

By default system-wide icons go beneath /usr/share/icons/*

[*1]When you're using the icon browser the "System" (Mime types, etc) is
/usr/share/icons/$current_icon_theme. The "Other" (browse...) allows you
to select icons from any local path.

Generally you'll have multiple pixel sized icons plus a svg, you've just
listed the svg. You should also have .png icons. eg.:-

$ locate xv | grep /usr/share/icons
/usr/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/apps/xv.png
/usr/share/icons/oxygen/32x32/apps/xv.png
/usr/share/icons/oxygen/48x48/apps/xv.png

NOTE: - you may have the same structure beneath /usr/share/icons/mono
and other icon themes.



Kind regards

..nope, it isn't, you were right Indulekha, but it close enough
to fool _many_ here. ;o)

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
best case, worst case, and just in case.

It happens once in a blue moon...

Actually, I sometimes set up desktops for non-tech users, and
have worked around the "no appropriate icon" issue the same way
on their behalf before (I don't need no steenkeeng icons, myself).
Then 2 years later an update breaks "everything" (***shakes fist
at G & K desktops***), I'm asked to fix it and end up stumbling
about a bit before realizing what I did last time.
