I have tried getting icons in Ubuntu 12.04 2d, by putting them in the
/.icons folder and using "Ubuntu Tweak Tool".
It doesn't work (This didn't work in 11.10 either so I think it isn't a bug).
They don't show up in the icons drop down menu. I was wondering if there was any other way to activate an icon theme. If it uses terminal could you tell me instructions using the "faenza theme".
Also the same problem happened trying to install a theme but I am very happy with 12.04's Ambiance.
