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

The VPN lock icon is definitely included in the Faenza set, but I don't think it's being referenced (missing symlink?).

I spent a bit of time diffing the files included with the stock ubuntu-mono-dark set and the Faenza set, and the VPN status file layout is definitely different. But then it started to hurt my brain and I gave up trying to find out exactly why the lock isn't displayed.

Hacky fix: Symlink the "status" subdirectory of the Faenza set to the ubuntu-mono-dark set:

~/.icons/Faenza-Dark/status -> /usr/share/icons/ubuntu-mono-dark/status

Thanks, NTolerance

Your hack worked. This set me on a slightly different track- I found all the icons with 'secure' in the name under 'status' in the Humanity icon set and copied them to the equivalent folder in Faenza/status.

Cheers
Charlie

Well then. Your findings allowed me to drill down a bit further. This is the file that is missing:

~/.icons/Faenza-Dark/status/22/nm-device-wired-secure.png

Turns out that the connection + lock icons do not exist together in the same file as is required. So I found the individual files and put them together in this PNG:

Save it as the previously mentioned filename and it should be fixed.

Is there an official bugtracker for this icon set? I'd like to get this fix rolled into the next release.

I would love to see Faenza icon for "Pinta" - http://pinta-project.com/ and maybe for TeamSpeak3.
And why Geany has wired blue icon instead of http://www.geany.org/images/geany.png?

I know it may be a lot to ask but is there any chance you might do a monochrome version? I'm including a link to what I had in mind...
