Installation :

  • For Ubuntu:

Open Terminal and type the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install faenza-icon-theme

  • For Other linux distributions:

Download the tar.gz file and extract it.

Now cd the folder where you download the icon pack, my case :

cd /home/zinovsky/Download/

Now install the icons using the command:


Running 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.
