SG Desktop Thumbnails Update

Hi!

I was wondering if there is a possibility to update the SG Desktop Icons on distributed user setups - since it doesnt at the moment as it seems.
The “tm-launchapp\thumbs” folder keeps references to the old versions of the icons and only update if I delete this folder manually!
Any tips would be appreciated!
Thanks,

Sebastian

Hey @sebastian.brandhuber,

Welcome to the forums!

You can use the Software entities page on your site to define your launch applications and you can set the icons as you please;

Is this a way that could work for your setup?

Hi @sebastian.brandhuber,

Sorry I think I jumped the gun there, I’ve just tested what you were explaining and I’m seeing the same thing where a change to an icon doesn’t propagate if there is all ready an icon cached.

I’ll write up a ticket for this.

Hi David, thanks for the reply!

Looks like you already found the issue!
I kind of solved it temporarily by adding some custom “thumbnail clean up” code to the engine.init.py hook, that only runs for tk-desktop, but of course a more convenient solution is always appreciated :slight_smile:

cheers,
Sebastian

FYI - I got in touch about this exact same issue with SG support in Oct 2018.
Perhaps a ticket was made then?
