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, I have installed Faenza using the PPA method on Xubuntu 11.04 and for some reason the default distributor logo is showing as Fedora. I installed it last week on Xubuntu and it showed the Ubuntu logo but today only the Fedora logo.
Has the default logo changed or is it just me? Has anyone that installed it on Xubuntu 11.04 on the 10th of August or after had a similar problem?

Hi,

It's my fault: I use Fedora since two months to test Gnome Shell ;) The Ubuntu logo will be back in the PPA in the next hours.

Faenza-Dark gets installed with its start-here links broken, at least in my case (openSUSE).

Excellent, professional-quality icon theme!! My old, plain icons hurt my eyes now!! Not much more to say really!! Thanks!!

I would like to design some small icons (16x16) for dark themes.

Do you have some tutorial or so?'

Thanx!

No tutorials for the moment but you can download the sources : you will find all icons in SVG format including the smaller size.

The best icons I've ever seen. I showed my friends Linux. They were more interested in your icons than any kde4 or Compiz etc... Congratulates. Great job!

Hi, I'm an avid scrabble player and was wondering if you would consider creating an icon for the popular wordbiz application (isc.ro). They have a hideous icon, and it pains me having to use it with your beautiful work.

Thank you.

Great job. Faenza is by far the prettiest icon set on Ubuntu!
I'd just like to request icons for 0 A.D., DOSBox, gucview and, if possible, less generic looking icons for GIMP, Shotwell, Cheese and Startup Disc Creator.

Can you consider adding proper gnome shell support to this wonderful icon set? Right now the theme doesn't change all the tray icons in the top right and uses incorrectly sized icons.

Hi, I'm using and loving your theme, it's really great! Would it be possible to add an icon for medit? This is the original icon (there seems to be no bigger image): http://ubuntu.allmyapps.fr/data/m/e/medit/icon_48x48_medit.png

Hello!

Thanks in advance for your great work!

It seems in Gnome 3 LibreOffice isn't affected by your icons, so i've edited its .desktop files and opening applications from launchers shows correct icons. But opening any mymetypes like .doc .xls etc.. uses original and low resolution icons. How can this be corrected?

Thx :)

Hi, first off. Love the icons. I'm using it with a modified Ambiance Revolution theme and it looks just brilliant on dark Toolbars. Now I'm using some software that has common icons which are not integrated so far. The icon that springs out for me the most is the "Save all open files" icon which I recognize from Geany but probably many other applications use. See this screenshot for reference what I mean.

http://i.imgur.com/xLHBR.jpg

Are you working on a replacement for that?

The other one that I marked is the "Open Color Picker" icon. I basically like the icon design and it's color but I would love a monochrome "hand" above the colored sections to fit in with the rest of the theme. But really I'm just nit-picking =)

Keep up the great work and let's see more brilliant eye candy in the future.

Great set of icons.

Just one thing missing- I would love to have an indication in the panel when my VPN is connected, as the Humanity icon theme does, for example. I have no idea how to fix this myself, any chance of a clue?
