Ubuntu 20.04 - Install Discord Client
Run the following command to download and install Discord using a traditional deb package file.
sudo apt update \ && sudo apt install -y gdebi-core wget \ && wget -O ~/discord.deb "https://discordapp.com/api/download?platform=linux&format=deb" \ && sudo gdebi ~/discord.deb
There is a far simpler way to install through snaps (below)
sudo snap install discord
Manually Adding Icon
Your theme may not have the Discord icon, in which case you may need to manually download and add it. I found the icon downloadable on svgrepo.com.
Then I just had to give it the appropriate name, and move it to the appropriate theme icon folder:
sudo mv -i discord1.svg /usr/share/icons/Arc/panel/22/.
