    Chrome Apps Turn into Paper Icons

    When I go to make a shortcut of a Chrome App, they still turn into paper icons instead of the correct icons in Ubuntu 18.4. Is there a fix for it? Will it be fixed in the upcoming 18.4 release?

    right click go down to properties
    go to permissions
    set (check) allow executing file as program.
    see if that helps

    When I click on them every time, it tells me "Untrusted Application Launcher" & asks what I want to do w/ them. Is there any way to just click on "Trust & Launch" once & the rest of them will show up fine?

    Just click trust and launch then it will work fine. Need to do this once for every new .desktop file you create. This is yet another stupid "new feature" of gnome. If I make a .desktop file executable then of course I want to launch it!

    It opens the right click menu w/ "open, open w/ other application, cut, copy, move to..., copy too..., move to trash, resize icon..., rename..., compress..., send too..., revert to previous version..., and properties)

    With the new 'method' no point in marking as executable in the files properties, a wasted step.
    Just d. left click on > mark as trusted.
    As mentioned this is a per file method required.
