Faenza Icons by tiheum Faenza Icons by tiheum
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. Four themes are included to fit with light or dark themes/panels.

This work is released under the GNU/GPL license. Sources can be downloaded here : [link]

You like my work (or to encourage me to draw an icon for your favorite application), please consider a small Paypal donation at matthieu.james@gmail.com :)

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.

Faenza icon theme is available to install for Ubuntu users via a PPA repository. View the README file for instructions and a list of known issues.

As the file is the too big for DA submission policy, you can download the archive form the dedicated Google Code page: [link]

TIPS:
  • Ubuntu 11.10: the Unity panel has a strange behavior with some icons compared with the previous version (and Gnome 2 panels of course), especially with user menu and battery state icons. You might use one of the to new themes instead of the classic ones: Faenza-Ambiance is suitable with dark panel and toolbars (inherits Faenza-Darkest theme), Faenza-Radiance with light panel and controls (inherits Faenza theme).

  • Some applications are configured to always use the same icon regardless of the selected theme. To display the Faenza icon, edit as root the /usr/share/applications/application_name.desktop file and locate the line beginning with 'Icon='. Replace the fullpath icon name by the one of the Faenza icon (usually, it's the name of the application itself) without the extension.
    Don't forget to make a backup before changing one of those files.
    E.g. Vim desktop file is /usr/share/applications/gvim.desktop
    Some desktop files can be located in /usr/local/share/applications or in your ~/.local/share/applications folder (e.g. Steam desktop file is somewhere in ~/.local/share/applications/wine).
    Here is a partial list: emacs23, gcolor2, bluefish, hardinfo, setroubleshoot, gufw, pithos, vim, rssowl, netbeans, gazpacho, guake, all commercial games, etc

  • If you want to use the new Gnome contact application, edit its desktop file (/usr/share/applications/gnome-contacts.desktop) to use the specific (and beautiful) icon named gnome-contacts ;)

The last Update for this was 2010, three years ago. I guess this is dead. Not the first really great theme that dies slowly that way. Too bad.

No updates, news, messages or replies. Let it be one year or three, I think it is more than possible that development has stopped.

It stopped because author of those icon packs is now an employee of Canonical and working on new Ubuntu icon set. Which is sad.

There is one glaring omission from this set though. Xubuntu, or at least Xfce. I ended up making one for myself as the orange ubuntu logo just destroys my theme.

Excellent theme. The only hiccup I've noticed is in the dialog boxes when using sublime text. I'm not sure where it's pointing to the icons but here is an example of what I see. The top is what I see if I'm using either Faenza or Faience. The bottom is when using the classic 'GNOME' icon theme. i.imgur.com/B8MR1l2.png

This screenshot is on Arch under XFCE... but I have confirmed the same results under Debian as well. Maybe there's a specific size/type icon that it's looking for. Would be great to get this fixed. Awesome work man!
