Faenza
Icon Themes
Description:

This icon theme for Gnome provides monochromatic icons for panels, toolbars and buttons and colourful squared icons for devices, applications, folder, files and Gnome menu items.

An installation script let you choose the logo of your favourite distribution and the appearance of the main menu icon (Gnome/distrib, monochrome/colour).

Several themes are included to fit with light or dark panels, menus and toolbars.

Please read the README file for useful tips and known issues

Installation
Download the tar.gz file and extract it. In the new folder created, run the ./INSTALL script to choose the distribution logo (Ubuntu, by default) and the Gnome menu icon. If run as root, the script will copy the iconsets to /usr/share/icons to made them available to all users. Some default icons used by Rhythmbox and Dockmanager may be also replaced.
Run ./UNINSTALL as root to restore defaults icons.

Launchpad PPA
Faenza icon theme is available to install via a PPA repository. Open a terminal and run :
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install faenza-icon-theme

Hi, first of all, you've done a great job, nice icons.
I don't know if this error has yet been reported, but when i do a manual installation using the script, if the folder .icons in home dir is missing, besides the usual folders Faenza-Ambiance, Faenza-Dark, ecc... a certain number of other directories are generated: actions, app, categories, devices, ecc.. each containing other dirs called: 16 22 24 32 48 64 96 scalable.
This generates clutter when choosing the icon theme, especially with G-shell, cause those strange folders are listed with correct themes. Moreover, the script UNINSTALL does not remove those dirs.
If the .icons dir exists, all is fine, the scripts both work good.
Installation done on Debian Wheezy, with .icons folder missing by default.
Bye.

The following image shows four stock buttons ... new, delete, add and remove:

The Faenza icons for delete and remove are the same. They shouldn't be. The remove icon should be similar to the add icon (after all, add/remove are often paired together) except instead of resembling a plus sign, it should resemble a minus sign.

Thank you for your icons, I use them with all my distros.

If you permit me, I have some requests, could you add to Faenza or Faience (or both :D), Parcellite icon/icon systray and Pidgin icon/icon systray. If it is possible, I would love VLC icon systray too.

Thanks again !

Hi there!

firstly I have to say that your work with faenza is awesome! So, the apps I have that are not included yet look really awful. therefore I wanted to suggest (if possible) that you prepare a couple of icons for xdrawchem and pymol. Both of them are chemistry/biology apps mostly focused on the representations of molecules and proteins respectively.

That was it! Once again, keep the nice job!

Hi tiheum, Though avoiding signing up, I've been loving your work for quite some time now but have noticed that you haven't made an icon for KeePass.

There are no other nice KeePass icons that really stand out, (for me at least), so would you make a Faenza-styled one? Please?

hi tiheum,

once again, I want to say, that these Icons are really awsome and the othrr faienze-Icons too!!

But what I am really missing are these beautiful equinox-gtk-themes, which were packed together with these Icons in previous distros.

Could you port them over to gtk3 for us Users please?? They are the same awsome as all your icons. I am proud of you!! Your Icons should be taken over into the standard-repositories of Ubuntu, its Derivates, LinuxMint, OpenSuse and other Distros out there in the wild.

Greetings to my dear friend

I upgraded two days ago from 11.10 to 12.04
Everything seems fine with Faenza-ambiance so far. Beautiful of course and most apps are covered.

Yet, the new change applied to the System Settings Dialog was not completely taken into consideration. Why?
Three heading icons are missing. I had to copy them from mono-dark-icons (categories/24/) folder in faenza icons folder:

~$ sudo cp ~/Desktop/svg/*.svg /usr/share/icons/Faenza/categories/24/

where the svg folder contains these icons:

applications-microblogging-panel.svg
preferences-desktop-peripherals-directory.svg
preferences-desktop-personal-directory.svg
preferences-system-directory.svg

hi tiheum,

I love your icon-theme really much and have it installed.

Now, I would have a wish for you: could you also make a white version of these nice folder-icons?? This would look lovely on my desktop at the moment.

So I would wish, there was also a white version of these lovely icon-theme.

Thanks for these Faenza-Icons and perhaps you consider my request.

Thanks from

Hi, I love the icon set. I'd like to request though that you keep the green paw motif in the Midori Browser icon. It's a cute one, and to my eyes, this compass reminds me of 1996 netscape or something.

Cheers
