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

Nice icons, but i dont like folders icons. I simply does not look good. Maybe should folders look something like Dolphin file manager icon in KDE Oxygen set..

Faenza is an amazing icon set!

I don't suppose you could knock together a Code::Blocks icon? (see here http://www.codeblocks.org/ )

Thanks :)

Impressive and elegant icons, thanks for making it available for us, the masses. Faenza Dark is my choice but I seems to have a small problem with Dropbox and Skype indicator icons - they didn't change at all. Any tips on how I should get around to fixing this?
And if I may I have a tinny request... If you will have a spare moment maybe you could "fix" Nevernote icon, standard one is not what I could call esthetically pleasing.

If you want functionally Dropbox icons you have to install dropbox +0.8 (The last version is 1.0.6 RC).
You can dowload the .tar.bz from http://forums.dropbox.com

When you install Skype no tray icons are installed anywhere: they are programmed onto the program itself. For the moment, it's impossible by the normal way.

I'm using it with the following add-ons: "Cupertino" and "Variants". Would you consider incorporating them to the main theme, as some sub-themes?

Just a small suggestion. I think current Skype icon would look much better on darker blue background (like the colour on the left part of OOO Word Icon).
Or maybe, it is just me...

Maybe you could change the "Show Desktop" icon to a monochrome style too, because this theme is very used in Ubuntu, and Ubuntu uses monochrome icons for the gnome-panel basics.

Would it be possible to have an icon for the great (and free !) MMORPG Ryzom, as there's now an official linux client ?

I suggest a modification of the icons that appear in the panel in ubuntu mono style (icons in black or white), for example amarok icon, the icon of the deluge, etc. ......
I still congratulate you for this wonderful icon theme

I really love all the icons in Faenza, EXCEPT the TRASH icon, which is plain ugly :( Can you give it another try? It'd be awesome...just a suggestion, anyway. Keep up the good work :)

Could you add -symbolic icons? they are designed for use in panels etc and adapt their colour. They are pretty much what the monochrome icons already do, but with 1 icon you can adapt to any panel colour. gnome shell uses them now for volume, presence and battery.
see also git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-icon-theme-symbolic

great theme btw

Hi! I find your icon-theme the best I've ever seen.

Just a note:
I find MUCH BETTER the old battery status icon. I miss that green/red battery, now everything is too GREY.

Is there a way to come they back?
