[3dprinter-general] Bug#993158: slic3r: Please change icons from symlinks to files

Package: slic3r
Version: 1.3.0+dfsg1-3+b1

I recently discovered that  slic3r did not show up in
<URL: https://wiki.debian.org/MimeTypesSupport/PackageList >, which list
which packages in Debian list which MIME types in their .desktop files.

I tracked down the problem in
<URL: https://appstream.debian.org/sid/main/issues/slic3r.html >, and
further discovered, with the help from the appstream developer Matthias
Klumpp, the cause.  The issue is that the package files
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps/slic3r.png and
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/192x192/apps/slic3r.png are symlinks, which are
invisible for the appstream generator.

Please change these icon symlinks to be files.

Happy hacking
Petter Reinholdtsen
