Wine application icon missing in Ubuntu Mate menu   

I recently installed Wine in Ubuntu Mate. After installation I noticed that the Wine menu icon was missing from the menu.
To rectify this problem I did the following.

In the main menu, click on Control Centre, and then click on Main Menu



Click on Applications menu entry at the top


Then click on Wine menu entry and click Properties on the right hand side.


A new window will appear. Click the icon on the left hand side


Locate the correct wine icon in the directory, and click Open. Your icon will then be replaced.


If you don't see the updated wine icon in the main menu straight away, logout of Mate and log back in again.

Icons for applications you install can be found in the following directory
username/.local/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps

Category icons can be found in the following directory.
usr/share/icons/Ambient-MATE/categories/48

Default packages that are installed, icons can be found in the following directory.
usr/share/icons/Ambient-MATE/apps/48

As you can see from the path, I am using the Ambient-MATE theme. If I was using a different theme that would change.

This gives your a better understanding of how icons work.
