Description Paul Webb 2021-01-26 10:37:06 UTC
When selecting writer (for example)from a dock or panel on a wayland session, LO opens using the generic gray LO icon, not the blue writer icon.If you the open, say, calc it opens a second occurrence or grouping on the gray icon, not a green calc icon. This happens on both plasma panels and gnome docks. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LO writer from pinned icon on panel or dock
2. Open LO calc from pinned icon on dock

Actual Results:
1. Opens with a new non-pinned gray LO icon.
2. Opens with both writer and calc grouped under gray LO icon 

Expected Results:
writer should open under its own pinned icon as should calc. 
works properly under X11. Has been broken on wayland for years. 

Reproducible: Always

libreoffice doesn't update the app id. Please report this bug to libreoffice

I think the predecessor to this was bug #100158, which also came from https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=779143 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1334915
