According to ShroudedNight, either one of the two locations require the icon (or a symlink as done by jeker)
In my case, I tried it by creating a symlink in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps using the following command

sudo ln -s /usr/share/rider/bin/rider.svg /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/Rider.svg

that did not work even after refreshing the icon cache by:


I thought that maybe it was because I was using Adwaita as my icons theme, so I did the same for Adwaita as well, did not work. After creating a symlink in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps/ did the icon show up for me, after running

sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/hicolor

I'm also using the Dash to Dock extension, so that might also be at play here.

Edit: Formatted the text

I was unable to install this package. I'm no PKGBUILD expert, but I noticed that it lists 'rider' as both provides and conflicts. I changed to: conflicts=('Rider') Capitalized to match the Snap Rider package and to avoid the self-conflict. That seemed to get it working for me.

It seems that the Unity3D Rider plugin detects the existence of Rider by the existence of ~/.local/share/applications/jetbrains-rider.desktop

You should probably exclude the .gitlab-ci.yml and .travis.yml from the package

Any plans on fixing the icon?

jeker commented on 2022-01-27 08:34 (UTC)

As ShroudedNight already said, the icon is broken since the changes in the desktop file to support icon packs. I created a symlink instead of copying the icon so that changes to the icon are reflected properly.

ln -s /usr/share/rider/bin/rider.svg /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps

I think it would make sense to install the icon in one of the default icons directories (/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps, /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps, /usr/share/pixmaps, ...). This would still allow to override the icon in themes, but fixes the icon for everyone using a theme which doesn't contain a dedicated rider icon.

As ShroudedNight mentioned a few months ago, changing the icon path in the .desktop file broke it since you don't place the icons in the correct folders. Can you make the below change to the PKGBUILD to resolve that?

EDIT: Moved patch to pastebin to not clutter comments.

Small improvement hint:

"pkgdesc='A cross-platform C# IDE by JetBrains.'" should be changed to "pkgdesc='A cross-platform .NET IDE by JetBrains.'", as Rider supports all three major .NET languages (C#, F#, VB)
