I am trying to install elementry unity theme on natty. I used following commands to install the theme.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementaryart/elementarydesktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install elementary-icon-theme

In the last step, I am getting following error.

Unpacking elementary-icon-theme (from .../elementary-icon-theme_2.7.1-0ubuntu1~natty1_all.deb) ...
Setting up elementary-icon-theme (2.7.1-0ubuntu1~natty1) ...
gtk-update-icon-cache: The generated cache was invalid.
WARNING: icon cache generation failed for /usr/share/icons/elementary

I tried to force the cache using following command, still it is failing.

desktop:~/full_circle$ sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/elementary
gtk-update-icon-cache: The generated cache was invalid

Could you please tell me how to solve this problem.
