All the custom icon themes I install can change the nautilus icons just fine, but the unity panel always looks like this:

Except when I set it to the standard Ubuntu mono, that looks normal.

I'm sure the themes I've installed have these icons present, and that the problem is that they are for some reason unable to load them.

How can I fix the problem? I'm using Unity Tweak tool to change them, and downloaded the themes from if that matters.

You could reset unity Icons:

unity --reset-icons

And Install MyUnity and choose the desired theme:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:myunity/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install myunity
