TS5 Icon not showing on Linux

I just tried out the new TS5 on Linux Ubuntu 20.04.
But after the client was started there should be an Icon at the left, where you can see a few favorite programs and them who are opened. But for Teamspeak it just shows nothing.
You can see this in the Screenshot below.

FWIK, on every Ubuntu distro there’s no icon (can confirm at least Xubuntu). Guess Windows builds are a priority.

  • Manjaro with KDE Plasma Desktop.

yea, it’s a known issue. You can linked the application-icon for teamspeak by urself :3 (icon is located in teamspeak folder)

…or create ur own desktop entry

That’s what I did.

Here is my file in case anyone wants it.

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=TeamSpeak is software for quality voice communication via the Internet
Exec=/your/path/TeamSpeak %u

The above goes into $HOME/.local/share/applications/teamspeak.desktop, although that depends on your distro/preference. Another place where you can place the file is /usr/share/applications/ and /usr/local/share/applications/ for system-wide applications.

In my case I chose to use the more classic logo (teamspeak_logo.svg) but there are several you can choose from in html/client_ui/images/icons/. Another good choice is tray_not_connected.ico if you like the zoomed-in headphone variant, but it may not work as well since it’s a .ico, although you should be able to convert it to a .png by using convert tray_not_connected.ico tray_not_connected.png (included with imagemagick package).


Thanks for resolving, but for me this doesn’t work as it should. On both Taskbar and Window Change Menu (Alt+Tab) I don’t have this icon, but for me this isn’t as big of a deal after all that time.

But I have something else for you: hi-res .svg TS Headset…

I know it’s not perfect (given that I’ve made it from that 96x96px .ico), but in low-res situations, it should be good enough.

If you would like to have this .svg file, here’s a link to download:

If you want to edit this in some way, do as you please!


That’s weird, works for me at least. What is your WM/DE? I’m using KWin/Plasma.

Default and boring Xubuntu here, XFWM/XFCE.

Desktop Entry not working? or does it work but the icon is not displayed?

Desktop entry works flawlessly, but icon is not displaying.

But as I said above, it doesn’t really bother be that much. I’m used to it by now.

Hey guys, I got the same problem like @Done in Manjaro with KDE Plasma Desktop and Kwin as the WM:

So, while the icon is actually shown in the application manager/launcher, and everywhere else, it isn’t in the taskbar and tab menu (windows change just as @_ニャー_3 mentioned) for some reason. The recommendations above didn’t work for me either. Any other ideas? Even that it’s not a big deal, it would of course still be nice to find a solution for it, just because it would look way better with it :stuck_out_tongue:

However, thanks in advance.
