I have this issue for about a month now on Manjaro i3. The Steam icon is there and fully usable, it just renders broken:
I tried reinstalling
steam but it doesn’t help. I found Steam not showing tray icon thread suggesting I should install
lib32-libappindicator-gtk2 (it was missing) but installing it and restarting Steam didn’t help either. Uninstalling it didn’t change anything.
papirus-icon-theme 20220910-1 (using
TerminessTTF Nerd Font Mono (didn’t change it for at least a year)
What icon pack are you using? Have you tried any others?
paprius-icon-theme works well.
I’m using Papirus-Dark from
Just to make sure, you also have
Yes - it doesn’t mention
steam in “Optional For” line, though - just saying:

I’m not sure why the icon isn’t displaying then. Maybe it’s something i3 related. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful.
I followed your question on icon packs and tried loading different ones - none helped so I went back to
Papirus-Dark. Out of curiosity I did this and it helped:
sudo rm -r /usr/share/icons/Papirus-Dark
reinstalling the package broke the icon again.
I assumed the icon in the pack has some issue displaying on my system but an alternative (I’m guessing from a Nerd font?) displays correctly when this pack is missing. I was wrong - removing every file matching
Papirus didn’t help.
I found out removing
/usr/share/icons/Papirus-Dark/index.theme fixes the icon and
pcmanfm (file manager) still seems to display icons even after reboot so, I guess, my issue is solved (I’m not aware of any other places where icons are needed on i3).
I’d love to know what’s going on, though. I hate not knowing.
