...and, unfortunately do much to make packages, etc, that contain the original Faenza icon set(s) overwhelming and confusing.

I'd like to applaud your efforts, but unfortunately, the icons don't actually fit in with the rest of Faenza: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11745544/variants.png I'm sure you can see where the inconsistencies are. Still, A for effort.

Congrats on great work!
Also, can i request an icon for valknut, or better, a little guidance to do it myself :)

Could you still make icons for applications "Trimage", "Gpick" and "Mumble"? Thank you in advance.

If you have time, please also consider redoing the following hideous icons.

DROPBOX: It's currently a bright yellow square with the blue Dropbox logo in the middle.

VLC: A grey square with a small VLC traffic-cone logo in the middle. Ugly.

CLEMENTINE: Very nice logo, but doesn't fit the theme since it's not in a box.

Thanks for the fantastic variants.

Also, Faenza's Sound and Video icon color scheme (grey with a green musical note) is pretty ugly. Think you could do something about that?

Nice work. I'm using this mainly for the Chromium and Nautilus icons.

I desperately want to see a Vim icon.

Hotot one would be great too although I'm currently using the generic Twitter icon for this at the moment. Lastly a Github Octocat icon would be good for a Prism app of the site although I'm aware this probably won't ever happen; I wish I was better at design.

hi Dear,
for installing the faenza-Icons, there is a repository.

Open Your Terminal and run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
and then:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install faenza-icon-theme

This will install the faenza-icons as well as the equinox-gtk-themes on your machine. I love these gtk-themes.

You can also read this here:

I was wondering how I can change the normal gnome-bar faenza icons from the black ones to the white ones, or more accurate the ones from the faenza-dark variant,

just found the solution

copy Faenza-Dark from /usr/share/icons to your local icon folder, say /home/yourname/.icons

edit index.theme, change these lines:
Name=Faenza-Variants-Dark
Inherits=Faenza-Variants,Humanity-Dark,ubuntu-mono-dark,gnome

There you go ... faenza-variants-dark ^^

Another way it's editing the index.theme file from Faenza-Variants instead of Faenza-Dark.
Replacing this line:

Inherits=Faenza,Humanity,Tango,gnome

For this one:

Inherits=Faenza-Dark,Humanity,Tango,gnome

In the next update, I will make a version for dark themes, so you don't have to edit anything.

Ehi! Nice edits!!

Listen, can you fix those ugly action icons?

There are a lot of action icons like "gtk-open" "Shutdown" that have max_size = 22px!!

On my AWN bar looks awful!

Can you create a scalable version?

Thank you :)

I know what you mean, I used GNOME Do and I have the same issue.
I see what I can do.

Great work!

Could you please make a dark version of these icons for themes that are dark. Because I can't properly see the small icons on the panel.

You can edit the index.theme file.
Replace this line:

Inherits=Faenza,Humanity,Tango,gnome

For this one:

Can you replace the icons with black backgrounds (if you haven't already done it?) like vlc?

(NB, I haven't installed it yet, but I didn't see VLC in the list).

Excellent work.
Is it possible to include a Me-TV icon? The original Faenza icon set is missing that too.

Report

These aren't really usable unless you include the other icon sizes... otherwise, they won't look consistent at different icon sizes or will get scaled down whereas others won't.

I understand what you mean but I plan to include the smaller sizes soon.
Faenza doesn't have any guidelines, so I just need a little time to figure it out myself.

The default firefox icon looked evil.

Very good.
