Faience
Icon Themes
Description:

Faience is a Work In Progress that include GTK2/3 and Gnome-Shell themes (see link below) along with an icon theme based on Faenza.

This theme is in early development stage. As lots of icons are missing, thus it heavily depends on Faenza. Be sure to install it.

Installation:
Extract the zip file and put the \'Faience\', \'Faience-Azur\' and \'Faience-Ocre\' folders inside your ~/.icons directory. Use gnome-tweak-tool extension to select Faience theme.

Launchpad PPA
Faience GTK, Gnome-shell and icon themes are 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 faience-theme faience-icon-theme

great job! thanks for sharing this beautifull icon theme!
the problem is: when use this icon theme in gnome3.6,it will disable nautilus's trash icon change from empty to full(it still show the empty icon even when I delete something to trash).I tried faenza and it didn't have this problem.

Still think this is the best icon theme ever, and have used it almost non-stop since you released it. Any chance of a Faience Iceweasel icon - I'm still using the Faenza one :-) - as well as Iceape and Icedove?

hi tiheum,

I also love your nice Faenza-Icons and these too...I am looking forward to this new ppa-repository...But one request: could you also add a white version of these nice folders?? This would be nice from you... And could you also add these icons:

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=135238

This would make your nice ppa-repository more complete. But as I alsready mentioned before: a white version would be nice...

Would it be possible for you to consider my request??

Thanks from

Fantastic work. Would you consider following the Icon Naming Specification (which both Gnome and KDE are signed up to)? http://developer.gnome.org/icon-naming-spec/

It's my understanding that the reason Faenza isn't in Debian is because a few standard icons are missing (audio-input-microphone for example, and is an important one to me as Empathy uses it!), and your directory structure is incorrect: /devices/48/audio-input-microphone instead of the standard 48x48/devices/audio-input-microphone.

(I sent you an email about this, but assume you didn't get it.)

Be great to get your work in distributions as opposed to being downloaded manually from gnome-look. Just saying.

Such brilliant work.

Launchpad is long at building packages these days and mines have a low priority (and sometimes, I sleep ;). I launched the builds on Maverick, Natty and Oneiric this morning so be patient...

No plan for this at the moment: from my experience with Faenza, it's too much work for having a ton of unsolvable issues with themes like Ambiance that used light and dark controls.

Thanks for the update - beautiful work, I've been waiting since August 29th for this :-)

Any chance of an Iceweasel icon getting the Faience treatment?

You're a genius - can't believe Gnome or RedHat or *someone* hasn't given you a full-time job to work on Gnome. Thanks for all you contribute.
