No menu icons when creating image via Pi-Gen

Tue Mar 12, 2019 11:29 am

Hi all,

I've just started using pi-gen to try and create custom Raspbian. When using the default scripts with no custom changes, the resulting images don't have any icons in the taskbar and start menu at boot. It seems to do with LXDE not loading properly or something of the sort? Has anyone ran into this before?

Not seeing the same issue using the standard build.

Our buster builds have the issue, but that's probably not what you're seeing if you're building stretch images.

Not sure if this is the right place, if not would appreciate a point in the right direction.
Using Pi3B.
Using pi-gen dated today, (6/27/19) git clone
Using Ubuntu 19.04 fully updated on VBox VM, 100GB local storage, 4GB RAM, 4 core processors.
Ran buld.sh with the following config:
IMG_NAME='KLS'
BASE_DIR=/opt/pi-gen
WORK_DIR=$BASE_DIR/work
DEPLOY_DIR=$BASE_DIR/deploy
DEPLOY_ZIP=1
USE_QEMU=0
FIRST_USER_NAME='pi'
FIRST_USER_PASS='<password>'
WPA_ESSID='<SSID>'
WPA_PASSWORD='<password'
WPA_COUNTRY='US'
ENABLE_SSH=1
Run through build all 3 standard images, no errors or failures.
Burn image using Win32DiskImager to 32GB USB, again, no errors
Insert into PI and boot.
First boot and resize work, auto reboots.
When Desktop comes up in regular or full images, get gray & white desktop, all images/icons/etc are missing showing the broken paper with the red x upper left corner where apps are.
ssh in, run raspi-config edit hostname, enable VNC, reboot
Same screen. First broken icon is Chromium, next is folders, next is terminal.
No apps listed.
