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!

First, I'd like to say that I really love this icon set! Keep on the great work!

I installed the icon set using apt-get, and it gave me no choice about the icon I wanted for the main menu . Now it's using a monochromatic circular one, but I'd rather the squared orange one. How can I change this?

Thanks!

PS: 1) I prefer the new version of Firefox icon ;)
2) Could you make an icon for Anjuta IDE?

Thanks! It worked for me, although I had to change the last two commands:

cd /usr/share/icons/Faenza-Dark/places/24 && sudo ln -sf ../../../Faenza/places/24/distributor-logo-ubuntu.png ./start-here.png
cd /usr/share/icons/Faenza-Dark/places/22 && sudo ln -sf ../../../Faenza/places/22/distributor-logo-ubuntu.png ./start-here.png

(I changed 'apps' for 'places')

Thanks for the help!

I would be very happy, if you made Matlab icon.

There is no good Matlab icon at all (only standard).

You'll be the first, who make beautiful icon for Matlab =)


P.S. Thank you for your icons.

Hi,

I love your icons!

Please add an shortcut icon for oDesk Team and it's status bar icon. The status bar looked off in a dark theme in ubuntu. And please improve the look of of it also. ;)

oDesk Team - http://www.odesk.com/downloads

Thanks a lot.

Cheers!

Thanks for the vim icon! You made me immensely happy. Strangely enough, it doesn't change, and i had to set it manually.

I checked and the icons appear where they should under /icons/Faenza/.../. I also ran gtk-update-icon-theme just in case, with no success.

Edit (as root or sudo) the /usr/share/applications/gvim.desktop file and replace the line :
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/vim.svg

by:
Icon=vim


It should now work. Note that you can restore the default desktop file by simply reinstall the application.

Thanks a mill, I should have looked into that. It should say just «icon=vim» to start with :)

For some reason (can't figure why) i can't see the status icon for "Caffeine" in the AppIndicator. It still uses the icon from Ambiance theme.

Any ideas to solve this?
Thanks in advance & very compliments for your awesome work!

You have to change the caffeine-cup icons (16, 22 and 24 px) in /apps with the icons in /status.

Does anyone know where I can download the version prior? I'd like to replace the new icon for Firefox with the old, whimsical one. Thanks.

New Chrome is definitely better!
Thank you!
I also think previous Firefox icon was better, but oh, well, I'll get my hands a bit dirty and change it myself.

Personally I preferred the older version of the Firefox icon to the new one.
I also still prefer the Oxygen style Pidgin, and the alternative Nautilus.
But other than that, keep up the good work!

I'm waiting to see the reactions to make a choice about the Firefox icon. Many people found the previous ugly, some others like it... it's hard to please everyone ;)

You did a nice work, but theres is problem with the install-script: it don't want to change the icons for Faenza-Dark.

Can you please describe your problem more precisely ?

The install script does not set any distro-icon or one of the monocromic icons, for exaile as example, to the dark version. For the light version it works perfect.

Sorry for my bad english.

Thanks a lot for your great work. I really love the theme. I would love to see an IBM Lotus Symphony and a TeXworks icon though.

Please keep developing this, it is by far one of the best icon sets I've seen.

I'd love to see a Vim icon soon.

Keep up the good work and thanks very much.
