[SOLVED][i3] dunst notifications icons broken

Icons (Volume UP, DOWN, battery icon) work fine on live USB, but after installation and full update in pamac they are not shown.

Dunst config for icon looks like this

    # Paths to default icons.
    icon_path = /usr/share/icons/Adwaita/16x16/status/:/usr/share/icons/Adwaita/16x16/devices/

I tried to fix it, by changing the path, but it doesn't work. I can't find which file/script send this notifications to dunst.

$ man dunst

 icon_path (default: "/usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/status/:/usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/devices/")
           Can be set to a colon-separated list of paths to search for icons to use with notifications.

Ups, dunst config is dunstrc :smiley: sorry

Maybe in dunstrc

/usr/bin/dunst
/usr/bin/dunstify
/usr/lib/systemd/user/dunst.service
/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.knopwob.dunst.service
/usr/share/dunst/dunstrc
/usr/share/licenses/dunst/LICENSE
/usr/share/man/man1/dunst.1.gz


  # Paths to default icons.
    icon_path = /usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/status/:/usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/devices/

Try reinstall :slight_smile:

Thank you.

I fixed the icons, now they are Papirus-Dark, and fixed another problem with showing huge icons of other app notificiation. max_width was set to 0, and dunst was ignoring the max_icon_size.

Here is the config if someone needs it.
