To create user defined glyphs in the icon editor the Windows documentation states the correct place for the .png files is under the \LabVIEW Data\Glyphs\.
Using 32-bit LabVIEW 2016 with OpenSuse Leap 42.3 the location should IMHO be ~/natinst/LabVIEW Data/Glyphs but this does not seem to work.
I have tested that the glyph files can be loaded from wherever, so the file format is correct, but I would like LabVIEW to load these to the Glyphs menu in Icon editor.
Refresh does not help. I'm thinking the glyph files are probably in incorrect folder.
Has anyone managed to accomplish this, and could you give me a hand with configuring this?
Referring to comments in here, I'm looking for a solution to the font issue in the Icon Editor.
Selecting different fonts does not seem to change the font in the Icon Editor, specifically in the Icon Text tab input.
I've had no luck playing with the Tools=>Options=>Environment=>Linux=>Use pixel-based font sizes, it seems like whatever I select, the font won't change at all.
This leads me to believe the issue is with the icon editor and the way it loads the fonts in Linux. I know that it works in Windows, but in Linux it seems as if the Icon Editor always defaults to a same font.
It does change, but for the worse if I select any of the builtin(?) fonts, LabVIEW Application / LabVIEW Dialog / LabVIEW System - in the Icon Editor Properties.
I've tried most of everything I found from internet plus then some. I've rebuilt the font cache, copied the small fonts .ttf file from windows etc. so I'm thinking the easy fixes are already exhausted.
Environment: LabVIEW 2016 on OpenSUSE Leap 42.3.
So, looking for help in LAVA forums for this.

I have installed Labview 2020 on Dedian Buster using the rpm to deb conversion method via alien. Due to Architecture mismatch i deleted the *i386.rpm files before conversion.
My Problem is that after creating a project at "Build Specification"-> "rigth click" i am only able to select "Source Distribution". Application does not show up as an option.
I will be grateful for any suggestions.
Thank you in advance.
Out of the box text in the icon editor looks awful. (See attached image, which is better looking than most.)
(Yes, even with small fonts: https://forums.ni.com/t5/Linux-Users/Labview-Icons-under-GNOME/gpm-p/3379530.)
LabVIEW 2016 64-bit, CentOS 7 Linux OS
We have tried many things to get this to work, to no avail.
Does anyone have a solution?
I wanted to cross post metux's discovery here asap, and have a separate discussion.
Metux's original post:
The recent Linux driver package introduces a CRITICAL security vulnerability:
It adds additional yum/zypper repos, but explicitly disabling package signing and using unencrypted HTTP transport. That way, it's pretty trivial to completely takeover the affected systems, by injecting malicious packages.
DO NOT INSTALL THIS BROKEN SOFTWARE - IT IS DANGEROUS !
CERT and BSI are already notified.
