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

Awesome set. Wish the gnome team would adopt it as default.

My single request: Basket Note Pads.

I can't survive without this program, and for now I've just ln'd the tomboy icon, but it'd be great to have a specific basket icon.

thx.

I came over this icon set by accident, because of a guy running a "Nub" theme with this icon set. It's extremely nice and the "boxing" of icons make them all fit together very nicely.

I always make a symbolic link from gnome-glchess to scid - any chance of Scid having it's own icon? (Or ln -s as standard!)
Tremendous theme, although I find the Iceweasel icon a little of an eyesore - the Firefox icons are superb(!), possibly a new Iceweasel icon?

this is one the best icon sets that are available. The only thing that would nice to have, is a better vpn connected animation/icon.

So i could see better if it does connect or IS connected via vpn.


Keep up that great artwork!

I think there are some icons not linked properly like:

Faenza-Darkest/actions/16/xfce-system-exit.png
Faenza-Darkest/actions/16/xfce-system-lock.png
Faenza-Darkest/actions/16/gnome-lockscreen.png
Faenza-Darkest/actions/16/system-shutdown.png
Faenza-Darkest/actions/16/system-lock-screen.png

which are all links to the dark Faenza icons even though there are these icons in Darkest:

actions/16/system-shutdown-panel.png
actions/16/lock.png

Next thing in Darkest is that Nautilus's toolbar, mintMenu, GNOME menu and probably many others use places icon for their home icon, not the one in actions. I solved this by creating links "places/.../user-home.png" (and a few more links in that directory linking to that link) to "../../actions/.../go-home.png" for sizes 16,22,24. Larger sizes were not present (intentionally?) so I linked instead to the appropriate files in the icon theme it is supposed to inherit from (Faenza).

And one more thing, which probably is related to all 3 themes, is that I have my buttons set up to show icons on them. I mean the buttons like those "Delete", "Save As...", "Customize...", "Install...", "Help" and "Close" in GNOME Appearance Preferences's theme selector. This is OK only if the controls use the 16x16 icons only (like Mint-X) but after switching to Clearlooks controls, which show slightly larger icons, I noticed that the Help and About buttons have different icons. So I found that only 16x16 versions of help-about and help-contents are present. All the other sizes are just images that are duplicates of help-browser and gtk-info, respectively. This looks a bit weird particularly when other icons, like close, stay the same.

But apart from that I love the icons. They are beautiful.

I've been using these icons for a long time but since the recent 0.9 update, a number of glitches have appeared in Ubuntu (from the PPA).

The shutdown-manager and logout-manager now have strangely mixed icon styles. Also, the volume icon in Rhythmbox is that of Faenza-Darkest while using Faenza-Dark. See: http://i.imgur.com/jrUtm.png

Meanwhile, is there any place I can download the previous version of these icons?

Nevertheless, thank you for your work and this amazing icon pack.

Thanks for adding the Faenza-Darkest icons! Now I don't need to rely on 3rd party icons anymore. :)

Something you may have overlooked are the 16×16px network strength icons. These are still black.

I'm using Faenza on Xfce and I spotted some possible fixes :
- for xfce-notes-plugin : you could add a symbolic link to tomboy-panel.png, in /status folders ;
- for xfce-clipman-plugin : I don't know how other clipboards managers are handled by Faenza-Dark, but my clipman applet display a black icon (probably actions/edit-paste.png), which does not look good on a dark panel (like the Equinox one). Maybe there's some trick with symbolic links you can pull out to use the Faenza-Darkest white icon for the panel, without changing the paste icon on all toolbars. The Elementary-mono-dark theme uses a /panel folder, but that may not be 100% standards-compliant.

Love love love this set. Great job, and I wish it were standard. Thank you for putting it together.

Just my 2cent but I think the Nautilus icon would look more stylish if it flowed out of the frame on a couple sides like the current firefox icons do... or if it was zoomed way in on the center of the shell, falling out of frame on all sides, kinda like your original firefox icon did.

Anyways, keep up the good work. It's pretty impressive.

Hi!
Thanks for this great icon theme! After updating a few days ago, there's a missing notification icon for empathy im. Is it possible to fix this?
Also the new icon for empathy doesn't look as good as the former one.

hi tiheum,

I wanted to let you know, that I love your icons and that I am going along with them for quite a while now. So I would like to know, if there will also be a package for Ubuntu natty??? This would be great.

So please continue this nice ppa-repository (yes, I use your ppa-repsotory here in LinuxMint ubuntubased) also for the future distros of Ubuntu. This would be nice from you because I don't want to miss your icons!!!

Greetings

edit: I also sent you an email referring to this.

Guake icon isn't working except system tray. It's still using the icon under pixmaps/guake.

And also gshutdown, screenlets and gwget are ostensibly missing for me. On the other hand it's great work.

Have you read the 4th point in the known issues ?

You have to modify two files: /usr/share/applications/guake.desktop and /usr/share/applications/guake-prefs.desktop

Yes I realized we need to change all of them manually. Then I scanned the other apps again. In addition to my first comment, here my feedbacks:

*libreoffice(or ooo) starter icon (it's easy, just changing color of one of them ),

*linker gnomebaker to burner icon,

*netbeans icon color look different.
http://www.cgshader.com/sites/cgshader/files/jogl/series/NetBeansOpenGLPackLogo160_0.png
This type of color would be nicer.

*I think older chrome icons better.

*inkscape and gimp icons look similiar at first glance. You can use more black in inkscape.

That all I had.

I like the icons! But one issue disturbs me slightly --- icon of Indicator Applet Session. It looks a bit blurred. In the dark variant of icons it looks fine. Could you repair this issue?
