    Question Install Faenza Icon Theme

    How do you install new icon themes with XFCE? In particle, I was thinking about the Faenza icons.

    Re: Install Faenza Icon Theme

    The Faenza icon theme has a PPA - https://launchpad.net/~tiheum/+archive/equinox.

    To install, from a terminal window, run the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install faenza-icon-theme
    As for general icon installation procedures, extract icon packages to:
    ~/.icons -> for individual user use (create folder if it doesn't exist)
    /usr/share/icons -> for system-wide use (required sudo)

    Let us know if you need more detailed instructions.

    Re: Install Faenza Icon Theme

    After I added the PPA and updated it, it said that it could not fetch the tiheum/equinox ppa. And I tried to install it and it said that faenza-icon-theme was not found. I don't know what is wrong because I use the terminal to add ppas all the time and this has never happened before.

    It hasn't been packaged for 12.10 yet I think.

    Tried it myself and got this:

    That looks pretty similar to what I got. Not exactly sure because of the different language though. Will they package it for 12.10 when 12.10 is released?

    They can also be found here: http://tiheum.deviantart.com/art/Faenza-Icons-173323228. There is a readme file in the zip file with instructions on how to install.
