I notice after the latest Manjaro update that the ebook reader ‘Calibre’ desktop icons in Gnome are missing. I’m not sure if anything else is broken because I can’t launch the application (even after uninstalling and re-installing). The only thing I can think of is Calibre is going through a major re-write to switch to Python.
Is anyone else having this problem?

calibre-common is not enough you should also install
So I have installed calibre-python3. Still no way to launch the application.

Not Gnome same issue on KDE after a new install of Mika.
Searched a bit and found
After pondering about the different options, i chose to select Breath2 Dark icons in system manager and pop there is de Calibre icon. I presume there is a connection between the icon set and application. Would like to know more about the workings of this behavior.
Thanks for your feedback. With Gnome I was looking for the *.desktop files in “~/.local/share/applications” and did not find any. So this is what I am assuming is missing.
I did some more looking and found the calibre *. desktop files:
So the question is why are the files not showing in the Gnome GUI?
This is an example of one of the desktop files:
GenericName=E-book library management
Comment=E-book library management: Convert, view, share, catalogue all your e-books
Exec=calibre --detach %F
Ended up re-installing Calibre with either the the python 2 or python 3 package.
