Description:

ABOUT
======
This is a fork of the popular icon theme Faenza, primary developed for dark themes. It comes with completely redesigned mimetype icons, lots of new and reworked app icons and multiple folder colors.

* Dark gtk-theme "Obsidian 2":
https://www.pling.com/p/1173113/

* Light gtk-theme "MATE-Colors":
https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1304720/

For all of you who want back a total Faenza-experience, check out the Delft icon theme:

USAGE
=======
The project is hosted on Github. You can download it, fork it, build packages for your distribution... do whatever you like.


UPDATES
=========
I'll try to update this project constantly on Github. Once a month I'll post a release (zip / tar-file) to opendesktop.org bringing the latest changes.


SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME
================================
Is there an icon you miss, a bug you have found, or do you have a better idea for an existing icon, just let me know in a comment. Suggestions for single icons are very welcome for further development! I cannot guarantee implementing every suggestion, but as long as they are fitting to the rest of the icon pack (and I do like them by myself ;-) ) there is no problem.
In case you want to report a bug, please also mention your desktop and distribution.

Enjoy! :-)

Yes, you can use alacarte or menulibre to change every single app icon. Both should be available in the Ubuntu-Repos. Good luck!

Best looking and most complete theme I've encountered yet.
However, I'm still missing the following:
JDownloader, pyLoad, iLoad, Stacer and most importantly Waterfox.

ok, they're added. JDownloader was already there. If the icon isn't shown, it maybe has a static icon-path in the .desktop-file of the app.

I love this icon theme, just a little wish: for me it was better the old terminal icon can you give the option for it?

I'm still thinking about ways of replacing single icons which are easy enough to manage for both the user and me :-)
Do you want back the "old" terminal icon from some versions ago (the completely dark one) or the "old" Faenza terminal icon (with the white frame) ?

The completely dark one :D

Hi Madmax, can you check icon for Freeplane? I am using Antergos Gnome (Arch) linux and I installed Freeplane 1.6.12-1from repo but there is no obsidian icon for it :( Also just to report that Libre Office 6 don't show Calc and Math icons.

This should be considered a bug but it was probably what you intended: the folders and many other new icons don't have the Faenza look. Faenza wasn't just another icon theme: it stood for something. It stood against all the other flashy (read: blurry) icons out there. I think that with much of the icons you have designed yourself you have shown that you are missing the point. I hope you can reconsider this design choice because a Faenza fork is very much needed and Obsidian is very good despite these shortcomings. In the meantime I've resorted to using Faenza Ambience from my repositories under ubuntu 17.10 and modifying it to inherit from Obsidian. That way Obsidian provides the icons it doesn't support but when it does the classic Faenza option is chosen.

Thanks for your reply. It's very good to know that apparently there are lots of other people out there who, like me, don't like the "flatification" and "Androidification" of the Linux desktop. But please note: It is not (and has never been) the goal of this project to be a Faenza-Continuation. It's just what I'm using on my own desktop. I really love the photorealistic app icons of Faenza (imho even better than the icons on macOS), but I don't like the folders of Faenza. The mimetypes are great on light themes but they do not really fit to dark themes... there the contrast is too much intensive imho.
But I've good news for you: I'm currently working on a new project which will be a Faenza-Continuation: All the Faenza stuff plus the app icons I created for Obsidian. Should be ready for launch in January :-)

I had the wrong impression about the goal of this project then, my bad.

Regarding Faenza continuation: That is excellent news! I'm looking forward to the first release.

No problem, you're not the first one. Maybe I have to better point it out in the comment.
If you like, I can publish a beta release...let's say by the end of the week....

I'd be glad to try it. I expect many people would. I don't know why a faenza fork doesn't exist yet to be honest. It's very much needed.

+1. IMO the mimetype icons are flat, not much Faenza-esque.
