When I run bitcoin-qt from CLI I get a nice Bitcoin icon with distinct colors for main and testnet.

Bitcoin main netBitcoin testnet

I want to create a .desktop file to run it from Gnome, how can I configure the icon to be the same? I don't seem to find those icons on the release files to reference.

  • I downloaded the binaries from the website and just ran from CLI ./bin/bitcoin-qt. I also compiled the code myself and have the same result. – Caio Faustino Jul 7 '20 at 9:11

You can download the icons from the source repo at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/tree/master/share/pixmaps.
