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

hello,
thanks for the great icons :)
i had a problem with thunderbird's icon - it just used the original one. i noticed that the linked "thunderbird-icon.*" are actually named "thinderbird-icon.*". renaming them solves the issue.

But just for you information, on Ubuntu at least, it seems that the LinuxDC++ icon has been lost - where there used to be a green icon with three dots, now there is only an icon with Tux.

Firstly, this is an AMAZING and innovative set of icons!!!!

There are a few icons that I thought could use some more of your magic touch...

The quality and style of the following icons do not seem to match conceptually with the other icons in this set...
- user-trash.png
- network-workgroup.png
- network-server.png

For user-trash, a square shaped bin/opening would be more suitable.

Also, the following icons lack the 3D/Perspective that you were going for, especially in sizes 24 and below. To give you an idea of what I mean, they looks like CRT computer monitors rather than slim disk drives. ;)
- drive-harddisk.png
- drive-harddisk-system.png

(Perhaps we need better shadows around the corners/edges?)

Would you please design something better for the above five icons?

Thanks!

Hello,

Thanks for this icons pack.

I not understand the choice for the Geany icon, it doesn't looks like the official (a lamp with the yellow, red and white colors).

i downloaded your updated version and i found that selecting faenza ambiance or darker version doesnt change the theme, it falls back to default gnome icon theme. any clue why this is happening ?

Thanks mate. I completely deleted the previous faenza installs, re-installed through script and it was through...
Am waiting for the Faience update, the Ocre with the menubar icons (A shade different from Faenza) that is simply awesome !

dont know how to generate error message. as usual i installed it to ~/.icons. tried to chose from gnome-tweak-tool. all versions except ambiance and darker versions work fine (even radiance version seems to work fine) but when ambiance is selected, it shows default gnome icon set on nautilus folders !

here is my screenshot => http://dl.dropbox.com/u/38232687/Error%20Screenshots/Faenza-screenshot.png

Hey there,

I've been a massive fan of your icon theme for ages. However I recently installed it on Ubuntu 11.10 and the battery indicator icon seemed really large, low res and generally horrid. You may of fixed this by now but I just thought I'd see.

Keep up the good work!

It seems the faenza theme does not have icons for media-seek-forward and media-seek-backward. Any chance these icons could be added? Gnome-mplayer looks weird since it ends up using Gnome icons for the seek buttons.
