App Icon turned blank under Wayland on some PCs

Can anyone advise why my “chirp-next” icon became blank since 3 weeks ago under Wayland? I thought ongoing updates would fix it but they never did. I unintalled then reinstalled but the problem still persists. I have this software on my other EOS PC and it’s showing correctly…

      • Open The App
      • Right Click It’s Title Bar
      • More Actions > Configure Special Application Settings
      • Click Add Property
      • Search for Desktop file name
      • Add the name of the application

Looks like Plasma’s menu was changed. There’s no “Point to” as the video mentioned…

Hmm, I’m not sure what’s going on if the icon is missing there too. When I ran into a similar issue I still had an icon on that properties menu, just not in task bar. I’m still pretty new to Linux.

Can you click on the empty square and find the icon in the ones listed there?
