I've been working to resolve this software icon issue, this will likely require a large find/replace on the site. In 11.10 the software icon was revised, going forward should we use that icon for the software links?

    The new icon is in /usr/share/icons/hicolo/16x16/apps/softwarecenter.svg btw Commented Oct 21, 2011 at 18:22
  • Not just on the site, on other SE sites (at least Unix & Linux and Super User) as well. I don't mind what the icon looks like as long as we get something that works for everybody and we don't need to edit thousands of posts manually. Commented Oct 23, 2011 at 22:44

  • @JorgeCastro Looks like you dropped the 'r' from hicolor for /usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/softwarecenter.svg
