I like the pretty old UBUNTU 6.06LTS human theme (orange). I tired to install theme in 12.04lts but its gtk goes wrong. – Amit Rane Aug 10 '12 at 11:31

Human icon set can be found in Synaptic Package Manager or Software Centre.

Just open up the synaptic package manager and type human over there.

In software center click to show technical items at bottom.

Mark human-icon-theme for installation and apply the setting for installation.

When done, open up the MyUnity app and tweak over there to change the icon theme to human.

I think using the Software Center is easier and more user friendly than the Synaptic Package Manager – Dan Aug 10 '12 at 11:47
I did search it in software center, but no use many config files can be found only in synaptic package manager and not in software center. see the difference when u type particular word in both – Amit Rane Aug 10 '12 at 11:50
I did find it the software center, try typing the whole thing (human-icon-theme), when there is a lot of results try clicking on the "show technical items" at the bottom – Dan Aug 10 '12 at 12:35
Oh sorry i forgot to click Technical result.. you are right @Dan – Amit Rane Aug 10 '12 at 12:40
